AIAC relocates

AIAC-JohanSOUTH AFRICA: AIAC Air Conditioning South Africa, part of the Airedale International group, has moved to larger premises on Laser Park, Honeydew, Johannesburg.

AIAC is said to have established a reputation for quality British/South African engineered cooling solutions that deliver industry-leading energy efficiency, reduced operating costs and maximum resilience. Clients include Vodacom, Barclays Absa Bank, First National Bank, Ford, Google, Liberty Life and MTN.

The relocation comes as a result of AIAC’s growth over the past few years, which has seen the workforce increase to now employing 35 people. 

Commenting on the move, Andrew Koeslag, general manager, said: “Quite simply, we’ve outgrown our existing premises and this move is an exciting new progressive development for us.

“We have almost doubled the production footprint of our original site, added more controlled stores areas and the factory layout and way in which we manufacture units is now improved and aligned with our head office in the UK.”
