Dr. Sean Gregory

Managing Director

Sean Gregory has a degree in Chemistry and Energy Studies, a Ph.D in Fire Safety Science as well as an MBA.

On completion of his Ph.D in 1998, he joined FTT, becoming Sales Director in June 2005 and Managing Director in January 2009. His Ph.D focused on fire calorimeter instrumentation and modelling which is the core technology upon which much of FTT’s business is based. He has continued instrument design and applied research studies in this area since joining FTT, much of which has been done collaboratively with industry groups and leading European fire research institutes and works extensively in National, European and International standardisation committees dealing with fire safety.

Sean is also Managing Director of Aitchee Engineering, Sircal Instruments and Armfield Engineering.

<strong> Stephen Grayson </strong>

Stephen Grayson

Co-Founder & Director

Stephen Grayson, Chemist with over 40 years' experience in fire research, co-founded FTT in 1989. Outside of his involvement with FTT, Stephen has set up and managed academic and contract fire research and testing laboratories, published several Books, is the Editor in Chief of the International "Fire and Materials Journal" , published by John Wiley and he Chairs the international Interflam and Fire and Materials conferences.

Together with the inventor of the Cone Calorimeter; Vyto Babrauskas, he developed the Cone Calorimeter usage and several standards in Europe. In 1992 he and Vyto published the textbook "Heat Release in Fires" which reviewed all methods of measuring heat release and using it for predictive modelling. Stephen developed and managed the European Commission (EC) Fire Performance of Electric Cables (FIPEC) project, which formed the scientific foundation for the Construction Product Regulation (CPR) classification testing of electric cables.

Since 1980, Stephen has been a strong contributor to National, European and International standardisation committees dealing with fire safety and has lead the ISO committees dealing with the cone calorimeter for about 20 years.
