Space Airconditioning, the UK’s only authorised independent Daikin distributor, has set up an engineering department to replace its technical after-sales department. Managing director Neil Afram explains, ‘Much of our work today involves quite complex applications for major and prestigious projects, and we recognised an opportunity for a higher level of integration of the exceptional skill sets between our applications, sales and technical after-sales departments.

‘We have created a new engineering department and increased staffing levels to complement this highly knowledgeable team of engineering technicians. They will continue to field after-sales technical enquiries, commission installations and deliver our training programmes, but they will also work more closely with our business-development and specialist sales teams, particularly on project work.’

Mike Nankivell, marketing and business development director, explained further changes at the company. ‘We have strengthened our team of R22 replacement advisors and created a new national consulting sales group, both of which operate as part of the business-development department. The new group includes senior representatives in Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, as well as at the Guildford head office.

‘Our business philosophy has always been to provide well-engineered solutions based on Daikin products. This realignment and recruitment programme brings together unsurpassed expertise in Daikin technologies and enables us to offer our customers and, particularly, specifying clients the benefit of a cohesive team approach to any application.’
