Airedale has appointed Adam Yarrington as product development director.
He takes over from George Hannah who has occupied the position for the past six years in January.
Adam joined Airedale in September 2005 after graduating from the University of Leeds with a MEng Degree in Automotive Engineering. During the last 11 years Adam has progressed from test engineer to customer services manager, working in various departments and achieving Chartered Engineer status along the way.
In his most recent role as customer services manager, Adam was responsible for; the Applications Engineering, Contracts, Sales Order Processing, Project Engineering and Drawing Office teams. His remit included the design of customised units for complex projects such as Vodacom’s award winning containerised data centre solution, and a project to design manufacture and install chillers that involved two 40-minute helicopter lifts onto the roof of the London offices of a global professional-services firm.
In this new strategic role, Adam will lead the development of Airedale’s design, engineering and research offering to underpin their growth strategy.
