Fläkt Woods welcomes Prime Minister David Cameron to its New Product Launch

Essex based fan manufacturer Fläkt Woods, an industrial and commercial ventilation leader, welcomed British Prime Minister David Cameron to its manufacturing site to view its world class facilities.

On show was the new JMv Aerofoil, a fan developed by Fläkt Woods to reduce carbon emissions, increase fan efficiencies by up to 82% and reducing running costs on average of 17%. Fläkt Woods fans are used in applications from general building ventilation, to car park fire smoke control, through to tunnel ventilation. 

Ian Morehouse, UK Managing Director and Vice President for the Fan Business Unit, met with David Cameron and together viewed the production and engineering facilities and met with team members. Ian highlighted how the new product range had been developed using advanced engineering design tools and emphasized that the advances in efficiency and performance come from taking the strengths the UK has in aerodynamic design into a commercial application. 

David Cameron visited with Will Quince the Conservative party candidate for Colchester in the forthcoming election. 

Ian Morehouse went on to say "we were very pleased to welcome Prime Minister David Cameron to our factory, it allowed us to demonstrate our technical capabilities and how we are developing our workforce that together push forward to improve our diverse product range to meet customer needs."

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Backing businesses to create more jobs is central to our long-term economic plan. It was great to visit Flakt Woods in Colchester with Will Quince to see their new product range. Apprenticeships offer people proper training and the prospect of a better future – it was brilliant to find that so many of the staff I met had started as apprentices. I wish them every success in the future.”

Fläkt Woods, which has operated in Colchester since 1909, has maintained its leadership within the ventilation sector and has continually been at the forefront of development and technological advances within the industry. It owes a lot to its staff, many who joined as apprentices, and together contribute to the company’s success today.

Yan Evans, Vice President for UK Sales Unit, stated "to be recognised by the Prime Minister demonstrates how effective Fläkt Woods is within the UK and World-wide markets. It is a credit to the effort of our employees for continuing to keep Fläkt Woods a name you can trust and rely on."
