The owners of leading HVAC specialist Campbell West have gone back to the future to strengthen the company’s workforce and air-conditioning offer.

Steven Campbell and Daniel West left school to become apprentice plumbers and now they have shown their continued faith in the training system with a £10,000 investment in two members of their team.

In a move that underlines Campbell West’s commitment to the development of their personnel, two members of the Berkshire-based firm have passed a 15-day course “with flying colours” to qualify as certified F-Gas engineers.

And Frank Smith and Tommy Gill have been praised by the company owners after bolstering their skillset by completing a new starter refrigeration course at Ellis Training in Hertfordshire.

Daniel West, Director at Campbell West, said: “At Campbell West, we are  committed to ensuring we offer customers the highest possible standards which is why we invest in our people, so they’re equipped with the very latest skills and expertise.

“Steven and I are both products of the apprenticeship system which we still see as key to maintaining the company’s growth.

“So we’re delighted Frank and Tommy did Campbell West proud by passing this challenge with flying colours and we know they will enhance our air-conditioning service.”

The Refrigeration, Air Conditioning & Heat Pump Systems City & Guilds course mainly involves practical sessions, learning to use tools and equipment and installing systems.

As part of their continuous development, they will hone their new skills  by carrying out some of the smaller air conditioning installations Campbell West has on its order book.

Frank Smith said: “It’s great to know we work with a company that goes above and beyond to invest in its staff so we’re equipped with the technical expertise that will help us long-term.”

Tommy Gill added: “We relished the challenge of learning new skills and we’re both looking forward to putting them into practice for our customers.”

Their double success follows a prestigious triple seal of approval for Campbell West as it strives to enhance quality, environmental and health and safety performance.

The Bracknell-based company has earned key ISO (International Standards Organisation) 9001, 14001 and 45001 certification which demonstrate overall commitment to continuous improvement.
