UK: TEV has announced the death of Chris Pedley following a battle with cancer. He was 63.
Hugely experienced and well-known throughout the UK refrigeration industry, Chris Pedley commenced his career in the late 1970s as a technical apprentice with Prestcold’s Semi Hermetic Unit Division in Theale.
His subsequent career took in roles at a number of leading companies including time with former Hampshire-based compressor distributor Dawmec, six years as technical and product manager at Hubbard Commercial, spells with Profroid and as Bristol branch manager with wholesaler NRW.
Most recently, Pedley spent eight years as general manager at refrigeration equipment manufacturer Efficient Product Cooling Systems (EPCS), the assets of which were bought by TEV in June this year.
“At TEV we only knew Chris for a short time but his help in transitioning EPCS to SC-Tec was invaluable,” commented TEV MD John Dobson.
Chris Pedley’s wife Marie is hoping to put together a book of stories and pictures for their children and would be very grateful to everyone who feels able to contribute with any professional or funny stories, anecdotes, pictures, or any other memory of Chris. She can be contacted by email or via this tribute page.
