UAE General Manager James joined his UK colleagues for a trip to the USA to attend the CFESA Fall conference
McFT UAE Technical Supervisor – Mr Armin Leyva – has recently returned back from his second trip to the UK.
The flight to the Heathrow was a relaxing experience. With a middle row seat and a half empty flight there was nothing left to do either than lay down, Sleep and enjoy the ride. This was an improvement over Armin’s previous flight to the UK, where a fire was discovered on the upper deck!
On arrival he was greeted by McFT CEO Mr Chris Craggs and from there spent the next few days with the UK Team with an update on gas regulations, training plans and training on the tablet software which is soon to be implemented across the GCC operation. Armin was also able to take part in the quarterly Comms meeting with the entire UK Team present.
Next up was a short flight over to Dublin, Ireland for some specific manufacturer training from Stoelting on their famous frozen custard machines which are used by one of our clients both in the UAE and UK – a successful training visit with bags of free ice cream thrown in to boot!
And we hear there was just time for a quick pint of Dublin’s finest before heading back to Dubai via the UK!
At McFT we value our commitment to training and development. We are the first catering and refrigeration service business to seek and achieve the EngTech qualification for our technicians.
9 of our senior engineers have recently completed their registration; demonstrating their knowledge, skill, experience and problem-solving capability.
Needing additional room for our growing team, we have recently taken on double our existing office space and needed something to decorate the new white walls. We commissioned a celebratory piece from social enterprise ARTHOUSE Meath, an epilepsy charity, a cause close to owner and MD Chris Craggs' heart, having lost two siblings to deaths resulting from epileptic fits.
Recent FM Graduate Dan Geisel, now Business Improvement Manager at McFT, from Conestoga in Canada is joined by students Terence Horsman, from Hanze University, Groningen, the Netherlands, Emin Kaya from University of Aston in Birmingham (yes we do take UK students!) and Eline Waalwijk from NHTV University in Breda.
