UK: Dave Woodberry and Louise Powell, long-serving employees of refrigeration wholesalers Pipe Center and Climate Center, have joined the company’s Hall of Fame.

Dave Woodberry, branch manager at Pipe and Climate Center Basildon, was commended for 40 years’ service and successfully relocating his Pipe Center and Climate Center branch to its new state-of-the-art facility.

Louise Powell, branch manager at Climate Center Hampshire, was acknowledged for 30 years’ service and helping the Hampshire branch to become the best known distributor in the region.

The Hall of Fame was officially launched last year to honour and celebrate long-serving and dedicated personnel from across the Pipe Center and Climate Center businesses.

Managing director Andy Wighton, who presented the awards at the company’s recent annual conference, commented: “The 2015 Hall of Fame winners are all extremely respected within the business itself as well as in the wider industry. We are very proud to have them working with us to develop the company and the sector it operates in.

“The length of service across both the Pipe Center and Climate Center businesses is phenomenal so we are keen to celebrate the achievements of the people that make a difference. They are all shining examples that their peers should wish to follow in the footsteps of.”
