Ziehl-Abegg UK celebrates 10 years


UK: The UK subsidiary of German fans and motors company Ziehl-Abegg marked 10 years in the UK last night with a special dinner at the stately Boreham House in Chelmsford.

The 120 customers and staff heard UK md Les Fish and CEO Peter Fenkl chart the success of Ziehl-Abegg UK, which has seen a trebling of turnover since the Chelmsford office was founded.

On hand to congratulate the company was the Mayor of Chelmsford, Paul Hutchinson, and Steve Gill of Stephen Gill Associates and president-elect of the Institute of Refrigeration. Pre-dinner humour was provided by Bob “The Cat” Bevan.

To further mark the occasion two cheques totalling £5,000 were presented by Ziehl-Abegg UK and the German parent to local Essex charity Kids Inspire.
