“I’m very proud to have been at the helm of the business as we have successfully morphed from a rental business to a solutions providers helping our customers to succeed in such uncertain times”.
“I am a recent recruit to Dawsongroup although I had admired it from afar for many years having previous dealings with both Steve Miller and Rod Benham. The business has a culture of only providing quality products, with marketing leading advice and customer service whilst always looking at our customers current and future needs. The desire to provide customer solutions is the drive that provides future innovation for our business.”
“Since joining DGTCS, I have been able to grow and develop within my current role and I see a bright future with Dawsongroup. We are a forward-thinking business with plenty of opportunities. I’m looking forward to being a part of our future and growing with the team.”
“I started with the company after seeing a modern apprenticeship advertised with my local college for an apprentice refrigeration engineer back in 2001. I immediately wanted to apply for the role because being paid to learn a trade was the perfect next step for me after leaving school. After joining I immediately felt part of a team and remember each and every one of the people who have helped me to progress within the company over the years. What I loved about the company straight away is the way you are made to feel part of the team instantly.
I think something that sets the company apart is the opportunities to progress that are available, the training courses we are able to attend and the general one team culture.
As the years have passed and I have changed roles within my time, I have always been determined to give other people the same chance I was given on joining the company and am very proud of the achievements all the other apprentices have made since we have taken them on in various roles. This year we will be taking on more apprentices than ever and I think this shows what a great place TCS is learn and develop.”
“I arrived at TCS as a Product Support Engineer, specialising in Fluid Chillers. After a short spell in this role, I was offered an office based position as Project Engineer within the then Refrigeration Department, then Senior Project Engineer, and onto my current role of Technical Manager. So TCS is where my engineering skills are best utilised. I have enjoyed, and still enjoy my current role as it allows me to innovate, and in doing so, I have impacted the whole rental fleet with reference to design, performance, utilisation and also customer/sales support. I doubt I would get that scale of opportunity elsewhere. I also enjoy the immense job security Dawsongroup offers, along with many other staff benefits, enhanced holidays, flu vaccination, birthday holiday etc.
My main achievements have been bringing innovation to fruition, such as the newer blasts designs, ATEX rooms, Clean rooms, Spiral freezer etc. Thus further enhancing Dawsongroup’s portfolio.”
“Dawsongroup is a fabulous employer to work for. They truly care for their employees, especially during crisis such as Covid-19 pandemic.
Dawsongroup has a forward-thinking management team. No matter what background you come from, if you want to progress and develop further, you can always find a place at Dawsons.
I am proud to be one of Dawsons and looking forward to growing with the company.”
“I love that my role here at Dawsongroup TCS challenges me every day in different ways. My co-workers and management team are extremely knowledgeable and I am very proud of my sales team who continuously strive to design the best solutions and provide outstanding customer service.”
“Dawsongroup will not allow the business to standstill, they continue to make sound investments in the business infrastructure, people and products to ensure the long-term future of the business. Offering training and personnel development throughout the business.”
“I can say with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to work with some of the most talented people in our industry. Dawson Group, and in particular DGTCS provides an excellent and supportive working environment, and we all work as a team. Plain and simply, this ethos ensures we can offer the best possible service and solutions in the marketplace to our current and future customers for years to come.”

Service Manager Daniel Poismans receives his 20 year service award from Managing Director Rod Benham becoming the 15th current employee to reach that milestone. Danny joined as an Apprentice Refrigeration Engineer while still 16 year old, qualifying a Refrigeration Engineer before becoming the Refrigeration Bay Supervisor in 2010. In 2016 he made the move into the Office running the Service Desk and now at the age of 36 is a key member of the Senior Management Team with responsibility for the Fleet Desk, Projects & Service.
Managing Director Rod Benham commented “As a business we always give employees the opportunity to progress and while we have always done well with our Electrical & Refrigeration Apprentices, not just the high retention rate post qualification but we have three others in our Service or Technical teams who are still young but already with a combined service of 40 years. However, one thing Danny should be very proud of is his introduction of office based apprentices particularly as one of his first batch is about to take her first managerial role, Customer Operations Manager Dawsongroup Process & Climate Control, as she approaches her 21st birthday”.
Danny commented “I am very proud of my achievements in my first 20 years with the business. I have seen and been part of a lot of changes over the years, experienced various roles and am very grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me. Dawsongroup today is so much more different to the one I joined 20 years ago and it is very clear that employees have a great opportunity to progress within the business and that the company will invest in its people. My aim is to help the next generation of DGTCS employees develop and we have made a great start with our current bunch of apprentices and trainees”.
