Nissar Rahman, Airedale Sales Engineer based in the Middle Eastern office, recently visited Rawdon HQ along with Saudi Temco Company, one of Airedale's business partners in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

'We (the UAE team) visit the U.K. every year as part of our annual training with various departments.

This year I requested Controls training which we are extending to our Gulf business partners.

The idea behind the desktop Control demo unit forms part of our upcoming hands-on training for partners in Gulf.

This will help us understand the various controls issues our partners face on site, as well as providing them with faster solutions in real-time.

I would like to thank Paul Roper, Richard Nicholls and his team for bringing the Controls Demo Unit to life. It will enable our local partners in the Gulf to become more independent and provide a higher level of customer satisfaction through hands-on training.'
