Bob Cowlard returns to air conditioning with managing director role at Daikin Applied (UK)

Former Sanyo man takes over day-to-day running of chillers and AHU business formerly known as McQuay

Bob Cowlard has taken on the day to day running of Daikin Applied (UK), the company, which rebranded from McQuay (UK) in April.
Mr Cowlard’s extensive HVAC industry experience includes a European management role for Sanyo, as well as most recently the MD’s role at controls company Carel.
He said: ”I feel very fortunate to have this chance as it is one of those rare opportunities where the new MD gets to join an already successful business with an existing senior management team in place, as no-one is leaving to make space for me. This allows me the chance to review the business and then focus upon the improvements that I can bring. Having Jim Henley leading the sales I know that these will go from strength to strength, so whilst not wanting to pre-empt anything at this stage, I do know that I will be focusing a good amount of my time at the manufacturing facility at Cramlington and also upon the marketing and brand positioning of the product range, both the current and the future development that we will put In place’.”
He said: ”No-one needs to be reminded what the Daikin name represents in the air conditioning market and it is now clear that the same market leading approach needs to be brought to the Applied (AHU & Chiller) side of the business.”

He added that some people are not yet clear about the difference between the two Daikin businesses in the UK: “In short, it is all about the sales channel and customer experience, but I’m hoping that in the next few months that will become much clearer as the Daikin Applied offering is strengthened.”
