Mark, with his business partner Phil, created Airquee in 2003.
Mark is always working somewhere - whether at the factory in Romania, working from home, at the Cwmbran office or out and about on the road. Dedicated, motivated and highly committed to Airquee's success, Mark is never found resting on his laurels. A very determined individual, once he has set himself a goal he cannot be deterred by anything!
When not thinking about work (and sometimes still secretly thinking about work) family and dogs. He enjoys cooking and loves walking the dogs or running when there is no dog available.
Adrian became a part of Airquee in 2007.
Adrian loves the challenges that his work brings him, working closely with Airquee Ltd to continually develop and improve our products. Adrian is a firm believer that high quality employees’ means high quality results and this has led to the growth of a strong successful team in Airquee SRL.
Away from the office Adrian spends a lot of time with his friends and relations.
Phil Hartell, often referred to as H in the office, joined Airquee in 2009.
Originally the jack-of-all-trades in the office, H has further developed and honed his marketing skills, tirelessly developing the company website and marketing strategies. His hard work paid off this year when he and Kerry joined Mark and Phil on the Board of Airquee Ltd.
His latest marketing triumph is the NEW Airquee Online website - www.airqueeonline.co.uk - the first full online sales website for the UK bouncy castle market.
Phil H is now based in our Cwmbran head office!
Kerry joined Airquee in 2011, having been in the inflatables industry since 2009.
Speaking to customers at all times of the day and night, whether helping them design their new products or finding solutions to any question, Kerry thrives under pressure and spends her time making all her customers happy! Her dedication to Airquee was recognised earlier this year when she and Phil H joined Mark and Phil on the Board of Airquee Ltd.
When she's not at work Kerry spends her time with her family, as well as Norman the dog - Airquee's unofficial office mascot! She loves to hear from customers! Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office 01179 414 918 (option 1) or 07990 766129 to speak to the lady herself!

When he is not at Airquee Viorel is at home - which is very rare as he is ALWAYS at Airquee! Otherwise he likes to relax by riding his bike and listening to music, especially ‘80s hits (favourite band of all time is Queen. The man has taste). He is also a big supporter of the “best Romanian football team”, Steaua Bucuresti.
Mariane started working for Airquee in 2010.
Mariane’s job is exactly as it’s titled - and we make sure to keep her busy!

She works with production and design to oversee all the orders we receive. She works very closely with our European and worldwide distributors, as well as trying to keep everyone happy during our busy periods!
Outside of work, Mariane loves to walk and practices yoga, as well as making her own tea infusions.
Erika joined Airquee in 2012.
Erika describes herself as a “perpetual-motion machine” so her job suits her perfectly! She spends her time talking to customers, helping to clarify all the little details for their units. She is often asked to test the units so she can also be found with the products, running, jumping and bouncing as high as she can!
When she is not at Airquee Erika can be found with family and friends, or in the right season, snowboarding. Besides her work she loves dancing, listening to music and reading interesting books.

Design, Inspection and Warehouse Team
Ryan has been with Airquee since it's creation in 2003.
As well as being one of the designers in the Bristol office, Ryan is also one of our two qualified RPII inspectors on site. He enjoys creating unique and varied designs for our customers.
Outside of the office, Ryan spends his time with his family. Sadly he is no longer allowed to play video games.
Rob has been with Airquee since it was created in 2003.
One of the two designers at the Bristol office, Rob spends his time creating graphics, designing visuals for customers and preparing 3D models of the inflatables for the factory to use to make the final product.
When he is not designing things, Rob consumes copious amounts of tea. He is never seen without his beloved hat unless arranged by appointment.
Laci became part of Airquee in 2008.
He spends his days designing units.
When he’s not at Airquee he’s probably taking pictures somewhere and spending time with his dog. In his sportier moods, he can be found on a mountain bike or playing basketball.
Krzysztof joined Airquee in 2006.
Adept with both a sewing machine and a forklift, Krzysztof is a qualified RPII inspector and warehouse operative. At his last qualification renewal exam, when it came to the weight test he picked up one 25kg weight in each hand and walked across the hall with them, which impressed the examiners!
Away from work Krzysztof can be found spending time with his family, playing with his children's toys or playing Call of Duty. Ryan gets jealous.
Jacek started with Airquee in April 2015.
Working with Krzysztof in the warehouse, Jacek is responsible for all the picking and palletising of the inflatables and orders going out. He also helps with the inspections, setting up inflatables and rolling them away. Soon he'll begin training to learn the repairs side of things - twice the repairs power!
And here is a group photo of some of the staff from the factory!
