Catherine Ansari - Spares Team Leader
Within 3 years, I had been promoted and joined the Spares Department, working in a very busy and demanding environment dealing direct with UK and International customers on a day-to-day basis.
Throughout my time at Airedale I have had many opportunities to further my career and received a wide range of training from Customer Communication Techniques to Basic Air Conditioning & Refrigeration.
I now run the Airedale Spares Division, ensuring all customers receive excellent customer service at all times and I still attend regular training, including NEBS Management Team Leader Course, the Dale Carnegie Management & Leadership Masterclass and most recently Pareto Law Training.
I consider myself very lucky to work at Airedale, especially after 25 years of constant support and excellent working conditions; I could not imagine myself working anywhere else."

Patrick says, “I have undertaken training in fields such as refrigeration and acoustics, as well as leadership and performance management. Airedale has supported me in professional registration with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and provided opportunities to travel across the UK and Europe.
Being part of a company that places emphasis on R&D is fantastic, and the environment and people I work with make it particularly enjoyable.”
