Climate Center announces new appointment

Published:  07 April, 2015

Peter Woods has joined Climate Center as technical services manager to further develop the business’ capabilities and offer customers an even better service.

He will be running Climate Center’s custom build base in Newbury, Berkshire, where the emphasis is on delivering high-quality solutions that meet customers’ specific requirements, from complete packaged systems to condensing units.

As well as running the shop floor, a key part of Mr Woods’ role will be working closely with the sales team to provide pre-sales support and ongoing technical advice for the company’s customers and business partners.

Mr Woods is also looking to increase Climate Center’s product portfolio, so that customers can benefit from a broader selection of the industry’s leading brands and in-house technical expertise across its branch network.

“Peter’s extensive knowledge of condensers, dry coolers, reverse cycle heat pumps, fan coils, condensing units and controls will help us provide our customers and partners with top-notch technical services,” said Andy Wighton, Pipe & Climate Center’s managing director.

“I am confident that his addition to the team will help us to continue on our journey of becoming the distributor of choice in our industry.”

Prior to joining Climate Center, Mr Woods worked for a number of the industry’s leading manufacturers in design and developmental roles as well as technical sales. In his new role, he replaces Climate Center and industry veteran Gordon Adams, who recently retired from full-time employment. Mr Adams will continue working with Climate Center on a part-time basis so that the business retains his skills and there is a smooth transition for Mr Woods.
