Since 2002, Hispec has stood as a figure of reliability in the UK wholesale market, offering an array of fire safety, emergency lighting, air quality, and lighting products. Our journey has been characterised by a commitment to excellence, rooted in the provision of reliable solutions that have garnered the trust of our customers.

Innovation is the cornerstone of our approach and we strive not only to meet but to exceed industry standards. Our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible is unwavering, and we’re excited to expand our partnerships to bring this vision to life. Together with our esteemed housing association partners, we’re poised to revolutionise social housing, one project at a time.  Our success is underpinned by our extensive network of nationwide wholesale merchants. Through strategic collaborations, we ensure that our products are readily available across the UK. By joining forces with Hispec, partners gain access to a vast network dedicated to ensuring supplies are abundant and communities are thriving.

Our recent collaboration with LIVV Housing resulted in the upgrade of Fire Safety equipment across their portfolio of 13,500 homes; saving in excess of £1,000,000. Further to the cost savings, LIVV Housing’s electrical installers found our products easier to programme and link together and their Electrical Contract Manager commented:  “Without a doubt or hesitation, I would fully recommend any business, small or large, to move across to Hispec and reap the rewards to their organisations along with the confidence that all their detection is 3rd part accredited by the British Standards Institution, ensuring compliance with their products.  They are also a member of the Fire Industry Association; this gives us the confidence that Hispec care about the products they are providing in the industry and are not just about supplying cheap products for quick wins.”

However, our impact extends beyond mere cost savings or product availability. When councils, housing associations and RSLs choose to partner with Hispec, they unlock a wealth of opportunities for reinvestment in their communities. Our efficient solutions enable significant cost savings, which can be redirected to initiatives that truly enhance residents’ quality of life. From community programs to infrastructure improvements, these investments lay the groundwork for vibrant, safe, and sustainable communities.

“It’s not just about cutting costs; it’s about creating a brighter future for all.”

As we look to the future, we’re committed to continual improvement. We recognise that the challenges facing the social housing sector are complex and multifaceted, and we’re dedicated to playing our part in addressing them. Through ongoing research and development, we aim to introduce even more advanced solutions that empower housing communities to thrive.

We invite housing associations to join us on this journey. Discover how Hispec has helped others realise remarkable cost and efficiency savings across the United Kingdom.
