Meet The Team
JOHN LANE Director
John’s career in the air conditioning and refrigeration industry started in 1980 when he left school and started his apprenticeship as a trainee air conditioning and refrigeration engineer at Braywhite. “I was fortunate enough to be allowed one day a week from work to attend College to study for my City & Guilds certificate in Installation and Service for Refrigeration Mechanics and then went on to getting the National Certificate in Refrigeration & Air Conditioning.”
Along with working for Braywhite and serving his apprenticeship he gained experience installing air conditioning and refrigeration systems to a high standard with the under pinned knowledge of what he had been taught at collage.
Moving up the career ladder from a qualified engineer and gaining experience in other companies John worked his way up to part of the management team. Having both the ‘hands on’ and the management experience the next step was starting his own company.
In 2003 Lane Air Conditioning was born. Starting small with John and an apprentice he was installing and commissioning air conditioning systems and within a few years gained a reputation as reliable and good quality company. John has since been able to employ a further two teams of Installation engineers.
“I am very much a hands-on person who is still regularly seen on site giving a hand to assist my engineers. I am an engineer at heart and not a salesman, so I always look at how to achieve the best solution for a job and not just to get a sale at any cost.”
Andy has been employed by Lane Air Conditioning since 2005 and has been in the air conditioning industry for the the past 20 years. His ability to adapt and overcome is his strength and he will overcome any problems which can arise on site.
Gary has been employed by Lane Air Conditioning since 2009. He has been in the air conditioning for 20 years and has gained a lot of experience working with Dakain, Mitsubishi and Toshiba VRV systems.
Richard has been with Lane Air Conditioning since the start, joining us as a young lad looking to get into a recognised industry.
Lee is the newest member of the team, joining Lane Air Conditioning in 2013 . Like Richard, Lee is hard working and looking to pass his driving test so that he can progress to further his career as an engineer with his own mate.
