Mr Fitzsimons started in the industry back in the early nineties as product manager with BAR Refrigeration in Rotherham selling RSI Recovery machines via rac wholesalers. In 1994, he joined ITE Tools as the UK sales and product manager, selling a wide range of rac tools and service equipment. In 2007, he joined American HVAC distributor and manufacturer DiversiTech as UK product manager working closely with its then UK distribution partner, Pump House to grow sales in the UK. Following the acquisition of Pump House by DiversiTech in 2016, he became part of the Pump House team as a sales manager with their Flexi Roof Support Division and later as an area sales manager.
Mr Fitzsimons has, over the years, made many friends with both colleagues and customers alike and has enjoyed his time in the industry. He is now looking forward beginning a new chapter in life, spending more time with his grandchildren, travelling and DIY.
Managing director of Pump House Dave Bass said: 'I have known Tom since the early days at ITE when he would visit me at Controls Center in Birmingham to help sell the ITE range with great success. Tom has always had time for people and has been a great advocate in this industry helping to train and increase people’s product knowledge and awareness in everything he has sold. It has been a pleasure working alongside Tom over the last 13 years and I wish him a long and happy healthy retirement.'
