Local group invests in Plumis - the appliance that automatically fights domestic fires


A group of local investors has invested in a system that won the Dyson product of the year accolade in 2009.

Five members of the Cambridge Angels have invested in Plumis Limited, which has developed an innovative fire suppression system for domestic kitchens.

Their Automist product won the James Dyson product of the year in 2009.

Easy to install, almost invisible and many times cheaper than a sprinkler, the Automist is soon to be installed in a wide variety of test sites from homes to sheltered accommodation.

Peter Cowley and Paul Anson have joined the board as non-executive directors. For more information, see www.plumis.co.uk
