The Business
Thameside Fire Stopping have grown to become one of the leading fire protection companies in the
UK. Providing a range of passive fire protection services such as on-site fire protection surveys and
fire door installation, TFS have continued to expand at a rapid rate!

“When I joined the company I could see the potential for the company to grow. We were in a small office and needed to find something larger, this meant higher rents and relocation costs.” Jess Dines – Thameside Fire Stopping

By using GapCap, Thameside Fire Stopping have been able to grow and fulfil the company’s
“Without GapCap being there to release our cashflow, the company would not be where it is now.”
