UK: Fire-stricken air conditioning manufacturer Airedale International could be back up and running in four weeks, according to md Clive Parkman. While damage at the Rawdon, Leeds, factory was extensive following the fire on Friday afternoon, the main machine shop was saved, it has been revealed.

Interviewed on ITV news today, Clive Parkman said “We’ve lost all the offices and we’ve lost the assembly area but all of that can be relocated. We think we can be producing again in four weeks in our machine shop and be assembling and delivering product in two to three months.”
