Bennett (left) commented, ““First commercial deployment is always an important time, and all the more so when the product is first-of-a-kind, like Dearman’s zero-emission transport refrigeration system.”

Michael Ayres, Deputy Chief Executive of Dearman, discussed the new additions, “Both Colin and Simon bring valuable experience of complex commercial engineering projects to the company, and have taken on crucial roles in the organisation. As respected leaders, they are welcome additions to our highly talented engineering team, and to the company as a whole.”
