Mark Jones has been elected chairman of the Fan Manufacturers Association (FMA).
The appointment is seen as a departure for the FMA, whose chairmen have recently all come from the commercial sector – Mr Jones is managing director of industrial fan manufacturer Woodcock & Wilson Limited, and has 30 years experience in the sector.
“I am honoured to have been elected as chairman of the FMA. These are interesting times for everyone in the industry but also challenging, whatever the size and type of fan manufacturer. Given the fact that fans are essential to almost all industries, raising the profile of the FMA and the members will be a priority.”
