It is with great sadness and regret that Fermod Ltd have to advise of the passing of their Managing Director, Richard Alger, after two years of poor health, having worked for Fermod for the last 47 years.

Richard has had a long and distinguished career that began working for his family business before moving on to Frigidaire, HRP Sales Ltd and Harp Refrigerants.

He worked hard within the industry and was a past President of the British Refrigeration Association and past Chairman of the Refrigeration Industry Board. He also worked on the Environmental and Energy Committee.
Richard was a real gentleman who was well known and liked within our industry. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and colleagues.
