Careers at Airmatic

Airmatic History

Established in 1998 by Paul Haywood, Airmatic holds a key position in the industrial ventilation market sector.

In 2002, our founder saw an opportunity in a unique service offering; designing extraction systems for customers who work in challenging, industrial environments. Chris Taylor joined the founding team and established a robust manufacturing workshop to support this concept. His experience of fabrications for paper and wastewater industries contributed to the development of the Airmatic that exists today.

Airmatic now provides premium and bespoke environmental solutions for challenging workspaces and has secured a trusted, prominent position in the wider ductwork and fabrications market, collaborating with leading names in waste, chemicals, engineering, food, paper, and manufacturing.

Our Facility

Our Bury facility sits on the Daisyfield Industrial Estate; an estate described as one of the most important developments in recent times in the North-West.

We manufacture a vast range of sheet metal fabrications in our 25,000 sq. ft, purpose-built facility. Our set-up allows us the flexibility and space to conduct our work safely and without obstacles – no matter the size or scale of the project.

Claire Watson


I joined the Airmatic team in 2012 as an experienced marketer in the Ductwork field. After becoming a Director in 2019, I’m now responsible for the day to day running of Airmatic, developing the company strategy alongside Managers and Directors, and fulfilling statutory obligations. It’s an exciting time for our company and I can’t wait for us to see it unfold as a happy, hardworking team.

Rob Taylor


I started my journey with Airmatic straight out of school. I worked on the shop floor, then moved into the office to oversee buying for the company. I’m now a proud Director whose key responsibilities are leading the contracts team and overseeing on-site work. It’s been brilliant to experience different areas of work at Airmatic giving me a valuable insight into everything that we do.

Chris Taylor


I started my career as a metalworker before entering the air movement industry in the 1980s. This led me to found Airmatic with Paul Haywood, where I was responsible for developing the company’s manufacturing capabilities. I’m retired and give all of my best advice on matters relating to fabrication and manufacturing developments at board level!

Paul Haywood


My career began as a draughtsman, where I was fascinated by the intricate details of technical planning. This interest kickstarted a career in design engineering, in which I worked for several companies and gained many years of experience. In 1998, Chris Taylor and I launched Airmatic – a company which values hard work, heritage and teamwork. These values still stand true. I’m now retired and use my 30+ years of experience in the industry to advise Airmatic’s forward-thinkers at board level.

Technical Manager

I was initially a welder by trade, but over the years, I have built up a vast amount of experience when it comes to managing different fabrication and welding businesses. I now manage Airmatic’s onsite division of fabrication and welders – and assist in technical views on structural steel and pipework fabrication contracts.
