Our founding director, Roy Dearden, last week won the coveted Institute of Refrigeration’s Service Engineer Lifetime Achievement award!
The IOR Service Engineers’ Section makes a lifetime achievement award to recognise an individual’s commitment to a career in service, maintenance or installation engineering. This award was sponsored by The Trainee of the Year Award.
“Roy started working in the refrigeration industry in the late 1950’s as an apprentice in air conditioning and small systems and moved on to larger systems such as food spiral freezing. He has worked on everything including ships, packs and large air conditioning system. He was there for the beginning of data centre cooling when he worked on Manchester University’s Atlas Computer’s cooling system and also the first computer to process the Football Pools results! At the age of 72 he is still enjoys being on the tools as a service engineer in the family business he started over 40 years ago, that now employs 8 engineers. He still attends calls out to the more technically challenging jobs.
