Managing Director

Although Tony trained as a Refrigeration engineer it’s a long time since he’s been on the tools. You can often find him involved in technical issues and bespoke designs, as he can’t help himself. Tony started the business in 2002 and has steered the company throughout. He has finally admitted he can’t play golf and prefers 'putting' the miles in on his road bike.

Paul Airey

Regional Sales Manager

Paul is our no nonsense, proud Yorkshireman with shiny shoes, who likes to talk. The shiny shoes is a habit from over 10 years in the Army, after which Paul entered the Air Conditioning Industry – 30 years later he’s still here. He brings a wealth of experience & knowledge from spending the last 17 years working for Fujitsu, so he’s got plenty in his artillery to talk about. These days Paul is either practicing his marksmanship on the golf course, or putting his BMW 1200RT motorbike through drills, or both!

Terry Pyper

Regional Manager

In Terry, we have another Yorkshireman now residing in the West Midlands. He joined the industry over 30 years ago thinking Carrier was a bag for shopping, Carlyle was a town in Cumbria and Airedale a breed of dog. Since he finished playing football and cricket, he has been a keen golfer and though he still plays a bit, the 19th hole is now his speciality. From about halfway round, he gets focussed on a cold beer in the clubhouse. Terry says the industry is full of average golfers but good drinkers.
