The first step to becoming a Thor Duct ® Licensee, and adding EN-tested and certified ductwork to your company’s repertoire, is as simple as making a call or filling in an online form. The motivation for any company making this move and reaching out to the experts can of course vary, but the benefits are as solid and guaranteed as well-installed, fully certified ductwork itself.
The advantages to becoming a Thor Duct ® Licensee continue to be obvious to licensee Airtech DS Ltd, specialists in the manufacture and installation of sheet metal ductwork systems, based in Belvedere, Kent.
We caught up with Operations Director Jay Watts for a chat recently.
Established as a labour-only enterprise by Managing Director Joolz Hembrough and coming up to 25 years in business, Airtech DS Ltd carries out ductwork ventilation for all building types. No job is too large or small for Airtech DS – they work on hospitals, schools and government buildings, as well as residential buildings and office infrastructures.
The benefits of the ongoing licensee arrangement have been “massive”, with one of the most encouraging and positive aspects being the autonomy Airtech DS feel they have in acting as licensees. All too often, licensees feel over-monitored – almost untrusted – in carrying out their day-to-day operations. Jay has never felt this when dealing with Thor Duct ®.
That said, this is not a distant, sink-or-swim relationship.
With a silver anniversary approaching for Airtech DS, things continue to look shiny, which is a credit to the resilience, hard work and flexibility of MD Joolz Hembrough, Operations Director Jay Watts and the team. The decision to reach out to Thor Duct ® has undoubtedly proved to be one that continues to reap dividends in Kent and beyond.
