Patrick Cotton - Research Team Leader Being part of a company that places emphasis on Research & Development is fantastic, and the environment and people I work with make it particularly enjoyable


Patrick’s remit includes responsibility for the Applications Engineering, Contracts, Sales Order Processing, Project Engineering and Drawing Office teams. He also heads up the design of customised units for complex projects. 

He joined Airedale in 2009 after graduating from the University of Leeds, and started as a Mechanical Design Engineer in the Research & Development team. He quickly progressed to Project Leader and took responsibility for the design and upkeep of full product ranges before then transitioning to a leadership role within the Research team and now Customer Services Manager.

Patrick says, “I have undertaken training in fields such as refrigeration and acoustics, as well as leadership and performance management. Airedale has supported me in professional registration with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and provided opportunities to travel across the UK and Europe.

Being part of a company that places emphasis on R&D is fantastic, and the environment and people I work with make it particularly enjoyable.”
