Gateshead-based facilities management company Commercial Maintenance Services UK (CMS) has appointed Craig Mclachlan to lead its newly-launched air conditioning division.

CMS has always dealt with air conditioning as part of its range of business-critical services, including heating, plumbing, electricals, and refrigeration, and the launch of a dedicated team reflects the growth of the technology in Britain, as well as the importance of maintaining correct levels of ventilation.

Mclachlan has worked in the air conditioning sector since joining Demeva Refrigeration in 1991. He has since worked as an engineer with AKS Air Conditioning before joining Clover Technical Services as a facilities manager. Latterly he was air conditioning manager with Bmech Services.

Nic Smith, co-owner and managing director of CMS, said: “Most buildings, whether offices, shops, schools, leisure centres or warehouses, have commercial air conditioning to cool, heat and circulate the air to maintain correct quality and temperature. We also work with many hospitals, care homes, and hotels where the importance of air conditioning was highlighted during the pandemic as a way of reducing virus spread. Many existing clients are increasingly asking us to maintain their air conditioning and this move is about improving the quality and range of our service.”
