Harry Waldman has retired as senior test technician at Airedale after 28 years of service
Yorkshire born Wardman joined Airedale in 1985, following 22 years as a field-based electrician, and graduated to the Airedale test centre, originally building prototypes and ultimately taking responsibility for product testing.
With the advent of the microprocessor, Harry saw a dramatic change as the product range moved towards more complex chiller and precision air conditioning control units, and has seen units significantly increase in power and performance to meet the temperature control demands of modern data centres, industrial and comfort environments.
Chief controls Engineer, Duncan Hitchcox, who has worked with Harry for many years and has become a close friend over that time, presented Harry with a gift to thank him for his service.
George Hannah, Product Development Director for Airedale said: “Harry has been at the heart of our development, and his vision and technical ability have been a key factor in our growth. We wish him a very enjoyable retirement.”
Originally from Otley, Harry lives in Yeadon with his wife Corinne who retires next year.
