Simon Green Promoted to Group Engineering Director
We’re delighted to have recently promoted our very own Simon Green to the position of Group Engineering Director here at Airdri.
Simon, who has extensive product design and mechanical engineering experience in the manufacturing sector, joined us in 2019 from iPRO Solutions Ltd as Head of Value Engineering, Sourcing and Quality. He will head up a team of 40 people in his newly expanded role and oversee R&D, production process, component sourcing, supply chain and quality processes across our UK, American and Chinese operations.
Speaking of his promotion, Simon said: “It’s fantastic working across Airdri’s global facilities, helping to deliver on our exciting new product development plans. We have an outstanding reputation for creating beautifully designed products and I love being a part of a business that puts sustainability at the heart of its operations.”
Steve Whittall, our Chief Operating Officer commented:
“Airdri is a business with ambitious growth plans and a commitment to continually invest in people and technologies, a strategy that has kept us at the forefront of the hand dryer industry for over fifty years.
“Most recently, alongside bringing an eco-friendly range and a new child-friendly model to market, we have diversified into the air sanitisation industry. Our latest innovation combines our two areas of expertise, a powerful hand dryer and air sanitisation unit with additional features added for further protection for the user.
“Simon’s performance in overseeing the streamlining of processes, his leadership in the development and testing of new products and his team management skills sees him perfectly placed to take the helm of this function of the business, especially in light of the fact that we are embarking on ambitious growth plans.”
We have been at the forefront of hand dryer innovation and technology for almost five decades and today, our philosophy remains the same; to design and manufacture highly reliable, energy efficient and beautifully designed hand dryers to suit every washroom. Each unit in our range has unique attributes ensuring that, regardless of where a dryer is to be placed, we will have an appropriate solution to suit the environment it is intended for.
