    Something's gotta change

    So we now have greener, leaner and meaner CO2 systems, glycol systems, HFC and HC systems all designed to make our world a better environment to inhabit. But in the drive to make our environment better and the drive to make everything more energy-efficient, I think we have lost our way from the days of greenhouse-depleting systems. So what is different now? One word –maintenance.

    Working Hand in Hand

    As reported in various industry media sources, there is a skill shortage in our industry, or to put it another way, there are more jobs to fill than people available.

    Time to improve the poisoned chalice

    Hands up who wants to be a commissioning engineer? Anyone? Just as I thought, the answer to this question, particularly if you work in the retail sector in the industry, is generally a solid no.

  • The skills gap needs filling, and quick

    So, why join the industry? I raise this point, as it’s been noted that a decent percentage of younger people are now turning their backs on going to university and opting for a trade.

  • Anonymous Fridge Guy: Stores and fridge firms need each other

    However, before you all get on your high horse and start blaming the supermarkets for their demise, I would urge you to look within the industry as a whole, before singling out one specific company or persons for their downfall.

  • Is the grass always greener?

    Admittedly, it has been a hard year so far for all concerned. And the harsh truth is there will be a lot of engineers not receiving a pay rise this year.

  • Time to get involved to improve quality

    So, I am sitting having a coffee with an engineer who services the Sainsbury’s contract. Now the engineer in question has just come back from a training course in Germany, ran by Bitzer and partially funded by Sainsbury’s. Now, I have worked on Bitzer compressors for years, and never had any retailer feel the need to send any of its contractors on a training course.
