John Maguire FISDip, SFIDip
I have almost two decades worth of experience in the Passive Fire Protection industry and have worked on many major projects around the country. My knowledge and expertise are second to none and I have managed many projects from different values across the country. . The experience I have gained in the industry have enabled me to acquire a vast amount of certification and qualifications which has helped me with my ambition in becoming a managing director. Within the 16 years, I have gained the experience working as a PFP operative, supervisor and manager for some major fire protection companies.
Working within the public sector has enabled me to develop excellent communication skills and whilst working as the managing director within the team it is my duty to promote health and safety to all staff involved with JM Passive Fire Protection. I also pride myself on keeping a close eye on all operatives and working side by side with managers, surveyors and supervisors on site, so they all know what is expected in producing high quality and correctly installed work.
In 2015 I then went on to work as a Contracts Manager, and whilst working in this role I managed many projects around the country where I built up an understanding that communication is key in getting all projects over the finish line. I also managed to build a very strong relationship with all clients, suppliers and contractors some of whom I keep in contact with today. Since starting the company in 2016, I have built up a very strong client base and continue to meet demands of new and old customers. The growth of the company has exceeded my expectations as well as all the repeat customers we have. We are a trustworthy and reliable business and I am ready to continue the expansion of the company with a great team behind me.
I have over 13 years’ experience in the Passive Fire Protection Industry.
I have had numerous responsibilities in my earlier fire protection roles varying from operational and management to Contract Supervisor, Senior Contracts Supervisor and now progressing to Contracts Manager. I have been able to adapt the skills and knowledge to my current role and have taken a lot of knowledge and good communication skills into this position with both clients and employees
I’ve been working on multiple North West projects since joining JM Passive Fire Protection in February 2019. I am a team player and am looking forward to extending my knowledge and experience with JM Passive Fire Protection. I’m looking forward to working on and seeing the progress of company.
I have been at JMPFP for over 5 years and I have developed and progressed so much alongside the company during that time.
I have come a long way from a receptionist working just two days a week to now working as an assistant quantity surveyor on the commercial side of the company and currently embarking on my third year at university studying towards a degree in quantity surveying. JMPFP have been really supportive in helping me further my career by allowing me to work to my degree on a day release basis which enables me to still gain experience through a full-time job in the industry, strengthening my practical skills that I can then apply to my job and broadening my understanding of the construction industry.
My role comes with a great deal of responsibility and as I have developed my knowledges and skills at the company, I have become more entrusted in marking decisions.
I am excited to see what the future holds for the myself and JM Passive Fire Protection.
I have 3 years of Passive Fire Protection Service Experience and have supervised in other areas for over 15 years, including construction and manual labour. In these roles I have had to communicate with site managers, organise operatives on site so jobs run smoothly and make sure instillation is correct and thorough.
I have learned and grown so much since beginning my journey at JMPFP and I am excited to continue to excel further with the company.

I joined JM Passive January 2020 with 7 years’ experience as a purchase ledger / accounts clerk in my previous role.
I am excited to continue to learn new skills with my new role at the company and building on what I have learnt so far about passive fire protection and construction industry.
I am looking forward to my future with JM Passive Fire Protection working in an ambitious, friendly environment with like-minded people and seeing the business continue to grow.
