Airedale has strengthened its management team with the appointment of Patrick Cotton as customer services manager.
The appointment follows the recent promotion of Adam Yarrington, the previous holder of the post, to product development director in December 2016.
Patrick joined Airedale in 2009 after having completed a BEng in Mechanical Engineering from Leeds University, where he graduated with First Class Honours. He originally started at Airedale as a design engineer in the Product Development team where he worked for five years, before acquiring the role of research team leader in the Research division of the R&D team in 2014, which was dedicated to investigating new technologies and determining their potential for application in Airedale’s product ranges.
In his new role he will be responsible for the Applications Engineering, Contracts, Sales Order Processing, Project Engineering and Drawing Office teams. He will also head up the design of customised units for complex projects.
Patrick will commence his new role with immediate effect.
