Asim Ansari, Export Manager of Leeds-based air conditioning manufacturer Airedale International, has been appointed to the board of trade association Eurovent Middle East.
He has worked for Airedale for nearly 30 years and currently heads up Airedale’s dedicated export sales team, responsible for successfully exporting Airedale products made in Leeds to over 60 countries worldwide. One region of particular focus for Airedale in recent years has been the Middle East and since, the opening of its sales office in Dubai in 2014, says it has seen a wealth of opportunities for growth, particularly in data centres, which Eurovent Middle East continue to support.
Asim said: “At Airedale we have recognised that certain geographical areas operate not only in different climate conditions, but also with different legislation. This area of understanding legislation is where Eurovent ME is really able to add value.
“I am delighted to be appointed to the board… but with this comes a responsibility that I take very seriously. A partnership with Eurovent Middle East gives manufacturers a platform to further their success whilst assisting them in meeting regulatory challenges of the region and I intend to work with my fellow board members to be able to deliver the support required whilst lobbying for change where necessary.”
