Women in Coolings:

I joined Hydratech over 6 years ago as an administrator in the order processing department. As my knowledge and understanding of working fluids (glycols, process coolants, secondary refrigerants etc) and the associated systems has developed, so my responsibilities have grown.

Hydratech have been formulating and manufacturing heat transfer fluids for over 25 years. Following consistent demand for technical advice and engineering support, the company recognised the need to take things a step further and provide ‘hands on’ system filling, flushing and remediation management. The progression into engineering services gave me the opportunity to take on a new challenge as part of Hydratech’s FMS (Fluid Management Services) Team.

My previous job roles have included recruitment, accounts and administration in various sectors such as logistics, steel fabrication, public sector and automotive. I have built up considerable experience in planning, sourcing and customer relations. It’s put me in an ideal position for my new role. I love working within a fast-paced environment, dealing with customers and providing solutions, it’s the type of career that suits me down to the ground!

As Services Coordinator, I’m responsible for coordinating the engineering team and water treatment projects. I record incoming enquiries, input customer system data and help to plan, prepare and brief the engineers. My role is diverse to say the least! It is challenging at times, and you must be able to adapt quickly, helping to provide solutions to whatever comes your way.
