VST Global is a multinational technology company headquartered in the UK and founded by Nigel Jones, Paul Davies and Simon Layer in 2006, to design, develop and sell kitchen extract and ventilation monitoring sensors.
It was incorporated as Vanguard Sensor Technology in November 2007 and rebranded as VST Global in 2017, to reflect its shifted focus towards buildings and ventilation safety worldwide. The company is now operated by Nigel’s three sons Ryan, Danny and Kenny Jones and the original founder, Paul Davies’ son, Lewis.
The Vanguard project began in 2006, when the Lexi sensor was invented and named after the first grandchild of Nigel Jones.
The idea was innovative. To create a monitoring tool that took the risk of human error away and introduce an accurate measurement system that could reduce the cost of cleaning and provide continuous precise readings.
2017 introduces, the Lexi2, an advanced, more powerful, re-engineered sensor. The Lexi2 reaches a new level of innovation and precision with the entire enclosure designed to be durable and robust.
The idea behind Lexi2 was simple: to craft the ultimate sensor experience yet. Easy to install, seamless communication, paired with high-performance processors and to accurately monitor ductwork across a client’s whole portfolio. The original Lexi sensor introduced the World to real-time accurate monitoring within a ventilation and kitchen extract system. The next generation of sensors takes the original concept to the next level. Bringing every client closer to their system, via a mobile app.
