UK: Gateshead-based FM business Commercial Maintenance Services UK (CMS) has appointed Craig Mclachlan to head the team of its newly launched air conditioning division.
Formed in 2000, CMS has always dealt with air conditioning as part of its range of business-critical services, but recognises the growth of the technology in Britain, as well as the importance of maintaining correct levels of ventilation.
As national air conditioning manager, Craig Mclachlan will use his 30 years’ experience in the sector to manage a dedicated team of engineers specialising in the installation, repair, and maintenance of commercial air conditioning systems.
According to CMS co-owner and MD Nic Smith, the new division reflects increasing requests from clients to maintain all their building services, not just the heating or plumbing.
Mclachlan joins CMS after four years as air conditioning manager at Warrington-based Bmech Services. His career began with Formby-based Demeva Refrigeration in 1991. After nine years there, he joined nearby AKS Air Conditioning, leaving in 2012 to become FM manager at Clover Technical Services.
