Retirement for Airedale senior test technician

Harry Wardman has retired from his position of senior test technician at Leeds-based air conditioning manufacturer, Airedale, after 28 years of service.

Mr Wardman joined Airedale, following 22 years as a field-based electrician, in 1985.

He later moved into the Airedale test centre, originally building prototypes and ultimately taking responsibility for product testing. He was sponsored by the Company to study for qualifications in refrigeration and electronics.

The test centre allows Airedale to test new products under controlled, stable conditions but also provides an environment in which clients can verify that products meet specifications before they leave Airedale’s site.

Mr Wardman has overseen a large number of witness tests involving clients such as the National Gallery and Arsenal Football Club, as well as testing most of the company’s units before despatch to clients in the UK and around the world.

Airedale product development director George Hannah 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.”
