Work anniversaries, F-Gas registrations, and FDSF memberships, what’s been going on at Michael Ward Ltd in 2016?
As the year draws to a close we tend to reflect on all that has happened during the last 12 months and we’re happy to say, as a company, we have had a cracking year so far!
Now Food Storage & Distribution Federation (FSDF) Members
Surrounding yourself with knowledgeable and like-minded people is always a good idea and brings with it lots of positive effects. To this end, we’re happy to now be members of the FSDF.
The FSDF is unique, being the only UK trade body to that focuses on representing all aspects of the country’s food and drinks logistics industry.
Being a member brings benefits such as us having accesses to the insight and support from acknowledged and experienced professionals in the field of Health & Safety and Technical aspects of the food chain. We can then, in turn, pass these benefits on to you our customers!
Our Commercial Director, Paul Delanty is proudly celebrating being one of Michael Ward Ltd’s longest serving employees, having started his employment at the company back in 1975 when it was founded!
Paul knows the refrigeration industry inside out and back to front and excels and working with customers, thriving at ensuring high levels of satisfaction are achieved.
Great at being the main point of contact for new business opportunities, Paul is pleased to be working alongside his son, Chris, who followed in his dad’s footsteps into the refrigeration industry, having worked at Michael Ward Ltd for 20 years now ever since he left school.
As a company-wide achievement, we are glad to have had 40 new customers join the Michael Ward ltd family this year for transport refrigeration breakdowns and servicing!
We’re also proud of one of our new trainees who has passed the F-Gas registration process first time around so congratulations to him!
By law, under the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations 2009/2015, all companies, however big or small, or even a one man/woman band that installs, maintains or services heat pump, air conditioning or refrigeration equipment that contains (or is designed to contain) F-Gas refrigerants needs to be F-Gas compliant.
We like being on the right side of the law, so all our engineers are F-Gas registered and therefore work up to the highest standard- no exceptions!
To ensure your business ticks all the legal boxes, we make sure it is fully F-Gas compliant. If you’re one of our customers, this is done for you automatically with our reliable online refrigeration service software producing all your compliance certificates.
F-Gas certifications need renewing every 3 years so our online refrigeration service software also keeps them up-to-date, which is handy!
This is all simply part of your service plan with us and you can access your personal portal to your refrigeration service log here.
