John Emm is ACR Champion

UK: John Emm, technical director of Pumps2Go, has been awarded ACR Journal’s ACR Champion Award after 58 years in the industry. 

The award was presented at last night’s National ACR & Heat Pump Awards in Leeds in front of an audience of 400 from the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industry.

John Emm began his career with a five-year apprenticeship in 1964, going on to work for a number of well known companies, including eight years at Dean & Wood as a sales engineer and, eventually, branch manager at Eastleigh. After a spell in Saudi Arabia at Refrigeration House, one of that country’s major refrigeration and HVAC wholesalers, he joined Dawmec, the former UK distributor of DWM Copeland compressors, eventually becoming MD. In 2000 he became MD of pack builder Enetech Products and moved to Kooltech in 2006 as OEM sales manager. After three years at German controls company Kriwan he left to form his own company condensate pump distribution company Pumps2Go in 2015.

In other awards, Laura Bishop, chair of the Ground Source Heat Pump Association and director of Infinitas Design, won the RACHP Woman of the Year award. Continuing the women’s theme, Gemma Watson of J&E Hall was named ACR Trainee of the year.
