Atlas Copco Compressors is appointing Keith Findlay as AIRScan Manager within its Compressor Technique Service division in the UK. Commenting on his new position in the company, Keith Findlay says: “My goal is to increase the profile of AIRScan among our UK customer base by providing highly accurate energy audit reports which can help customers save money by highlighting the benefits of VSD and energy recovery technology, in addition to enabling them to rectify downstream issues such as pressure drops, process leaks and pipe work improvements. I therefore believe AIRScan has the potential to become a good practice guide, as well as an energy audit.”
After completing his apprenticeship with City and Guilds and J.I.B Achievement Measurement qualifications in electrical engineering, Keith moved into the field of compressed air and for 6 years worked as an Industrial Air sales engineer with Atlas Copco, winning the Salesman of the Year award in 2004. After two subsequent career moves he went on to set up his own business in air energy management, gaining the expertise which after 4 years lead to his re-joining Atlas Copco Compressors in this specialist role.
AIRScan is Atlas Copco’s highly accurate, non-intrusive, independent survey report system which is designed to pinpoint any compressed air system energy drains so action can be taken to achieve peak efficiency, with consequent savings in energy costs. In his new position, Keith plans to build an AIRScan team of the company’s own specialist service engineers and energy consultants to assist existing customers and new clients to achieve the ISO50001 standard, which includes ISO11011 compressed air energy audit compliance.
A native of Sunderland, Keith’s leisure activities are shared between playing golf, supporting Sunderland AFC, encouraging his two sons at football and pursuing his love of world travel.
