Colin Craggs hangs up boots

After a distinguished career in air quality instrumentation, Colin Craggs has retired from his longstanding role as a senior member of the Air Monitors sales team. Colin retires on a high, having personally achieved over £1 million in sales during 2017 and significantly more in 2018. This success is partly due to the growing concern with air pollution which is driving the need to monitor, but is also testament to the depth of knowledge and experience that Colin was able to share with his customers.

Colin’s first instrumentation job was with Instrumentation Laboratories, which subsequently became part of the Thermo group. At that time, another member of the sales team was a young man from Glasgow, named Jim Mills, who became head of Thermo’s environmental division. Then, when Jim left, Colin was promoted to this position and spent many years with the group. In recognition of his success in various roles at Thermo, Colin was recently the recipient of a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.

The two young (ish) salesmen acquired a healthy respect for each other, so when Colin left Thermo in 2010, Jim snapped him up immediately, giving him Air Monitors’ sales responsibility for the north of England.

Jim is a great believer in the experience and expertise necessary to build trust with customers, so he says: “The decision to offer Colin a job was one of the easiest I have ever had to make. He is very well liked and respected in the air quality sector, and his technical knowledge is excellent, so we were thrilled when he agreed to join Air Monitors.

“It is very sad that Colin is now retiring – after nine hugely successful years with Air Monitors there are some big shoes to fill, but he has laid the foundation for a very strong business, and we are hugely optimistic about the future.”
