Decades in the making: Royale’s roots and our path to the present

Posted: May 29, 2019

It’s been a long road to the present day for Royale! Since our inception in 1987 we’ve grown from a two-person operation to the thriving family we’re so proud of today.

Family matters.

It was 1987; a special year! Royale was born on a fateful, probably rainy day, founded by the company’s original directors Nick Sheppard and David Cullinane.

We work more than a little magic at Royale, so it’s time to talk about the important people behind the service we’re so proud of! Many of our employees have been with us for over twenty years – a massive privilege in a world where many move around every few years.

That kind of long experience is simply irreplaceable, and it’s a huge factor in the close, personable support we’re able to offer our clients – be they single projects or extended maintenance contracts.

It’s a fascinating, fast-moving career with Royale! Our engineers are always on the move, responding to requests from customers as part of our ‘reactive service’ that ensures a resolution within four hours in the event of a business-critical problem.

Each day is different. With jobs varying from a quick part replacement and testing to a prolonged investigation and repair, a typical day is hard to summarise!

Apprenticeships are vital to the trades, and they’re a great way for companies like us to help give the next generation a head-start in a rewarding career.

Our industry is a challenging one to get into. The many certifications and regulations – not to mention the differences between individual units and models – mean an apprentice has a lot to learn, remember and recall on the spot during their work.

It’s our role in the apprenticeship relationship to be encouraging and informative. Air conditioning and refrigeration skills aren’t learned overnight, after all!
