IADA Limited would like to take this opportunity to place on record our sincere thanks to our
former Non-Executive Chairman Mike Casson for his valuable time, outstanding contribution and
his dedication to IADA over the past two decades.
Under his leadership, Mike has overseen the continual rise and expansion of IADA in the market
place. Initially IADA had 6 members and Mike was an integral part of IADA’s impressive growth
leaving the group with 26 members that currently offer an impressive 51 Service Centres
throughout the UK. This dynamic leadership and passion for the largest group of independent
MRO distributors in the UK could not have been so successful without the influences and guidance
of Mike Casson.
This highly successful reign as IADA’s Non-Executive Chairman would come as no surprise to the
industry. Forming City Seals & Bearings back in 1979 Mike was the driving force behind this
excellent IADA member which later saw the acquisitions of Pipemore and most recently Albion
Transmissions Ltd. Mike has stated that all his companies will continue to support the IADA
network of Service Centres as this excellent organisation continues to expand.
From everyone involved in IADA we wish Mike continued success in everything he plans from now
on and his enthusiasm, experience and infectious personality will be a big miss in the boardroom.
Thank you, Mike, for everything you have done for IADA and we all wish you the best of luck in
your future endeavours.
