Leading industrial fan manufacturer, Woodcock & Wilson Limited, is pleased to announce that Mark Jones, the company’s managing director, has been elected chairman of the UK’s Fan Manufacturers Association (FMA). Mark Jones brings over 30 years experience as an industrial fan manufacturer to the role.
The appointment is a change for the FMA, whose chairmen in recent times have all been from the commercial sector. Whilst the industrial and commercial sectors have their own different interests, there are many issues and topics that have a bearing on both.
Recently, energy efficiency has become the main focus for FMA members, in particular the new EU regulations on fan efficiency and the ISO standard on efficiency classification of fans.
Mark Jones commented,
“I am honoured to have been elected as chairman of the FMA. These are interesting times for everyone in the industry but also challenging whatever the size and type of fan manufacturer. Given the fact that fans are essential to almost all industries, raising the profile of the FMA and the members will be a priority. I am also very much looking forward to progressing matters on the energy efficiency agenda, which will have an impact on all our members.”
