MADE in Britain member Airedale International Air Conditioning, based in Leeds, has just won a £1m export order to supply cooling for the new metro system in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The air conditioning units will be installed in data centres housing the computers that run the new stations on the £18m railway. The metro consists of eight lines covering 110 miles with 85 stations and the first phase will open next year.
Asim Ansari, export sales manager at Airedale, told the Yorkshire Evening Post, “This is a fantastic contract win for us, on a huge and very high profile project. Exports now make up around 30 per cent of our sales and we have been growing our presence in the Middle East since 2014.”
He also said that British goods are held in high regard in the Middle East. Visit the Airedale Made in Britain member page here
