At a special awards presentation and lunch recognising employee long service, the managing director of Leeds-based Airedale International Air Conditioning paid tribute to 29 employees whose combined service represents 580 years. Two of the employees each received a 35 year award.

The Success of our Business is our People

Congratulating the employees, managing director Clive Parkman said: "It has been a challenging year but the success of our business can be attributed to your commitment, for which I thank you. Longevity and continuity is as important for the business as the need to keep bringing in new people and developing our apprentices. I look to you to provide guidance to employees so we have the right mix of experience and fresh ideas."

During the past twelve months Airedale has achieved record-breaking weekly sales figures and has appointed a new commercial director who is tasked with expanding Airedale's buoyant export market. The company has launched the largest scroll chiller, the 1MW DeltaChill and introduced to the market an extended range of our latest generation SmartCool precision air conditioning system.

Adds Parkman: "Product change is driven by the market and our customers who increasingly demand more efficient and environmentally acceptable products. To meet their higher skills required, we must ensure our work-force has the necessary knowledge and learning. Our ethos is in ensuring continuous improvement throughout the company backed by an on-going commitment to develop a first-rate work force with world class air conditioning training facilities and support.

"Our purpose-built air conditioning and refrigeration training school provides continuous learning for Airedale's 400-strong workforce which includes 17 apprentices and is crucial in bringing new employees up to the required skill levels as quickly as possible."
