We’re absolutely delighted to be awarded Salford’s SME of the Year.
AirSource scored first place in the SME of the Year category at the Salford Business Awards 2016, also earning a runners-up spot in the Innovation Award.
The Salford Business Awards, now in their ninth year, also recognised AirSource’s innovation in bringing its TempAir range to market, which combines heat recovery and a renewable energy air-to-air heat pump, to provide tempered fresh in an eco-friendly way. It’s an incredibly flexible product which can be built and tested prior to despatch.
Dave Clayton, MD, AirSource said: “The SME of the Year Award is a fantastic achievement! Winning identifies us as a valuable contributor to our local economy and an innovator within our industry, which we will use as a springboard to even more innovation and growth.
“It’s wonderful to be recognised for all the hard work the whole team has put in over the past five years. Congratulations to everyone that contributes to our success, and a huge thank you for their continued hard work!”
During a recent visit, Rebecca Long-Bailey, MP for Salford and Eccles and Shadow Minister (Treasury), was shown round our site in Eccles by AirSource managing director, Dave Clayton and met the 40-strong team.
They discussed the challenges facing UK manufacturing companies and the importance of investment, quality and training for future productivity.
Speaking after the event, Dave Clayton, an expert on the new EU regulations relating to heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, said: “It was good to meet our local MP and talk about our plans for expansion, the proposed move to new premises and the innovation required for manufacturing companies to succeed.”
He continued: “Skills training and a particular emphasis on Research & Development are fundamental to manufacturing companies like us to build a strong and sustainable economy. That is why new technology generation is at the top of our agenda.”
Airsource is the fastest growing company in the UK HVAC sector. The company is committed to expanding UK sales and looks forward to exporting products in the future.
