About Us

Petra International Export Co. (UK) Ltd is a UK registered company that is the European sales and support company for the parent company and manufacturing facility based in Amman, the capital city of Jordan

Petra in the Uk

Petra UK has been active in the UK and Europe since 2017.  We were established to spearhead the launch of Petra Engineering’s range of HVAC systems to the UK marketplace, as well as support the equipment that was installed in the UK from the beginning of this millenium by a Petra distributor.  Much of the equipment that was installed then is still operational and we are proud to say that we are now being asked to replace these units with the more energy efficient new generation of equipment.

We maintain very close links with our colleagues at the factory, and collaborate closely to engineer bespoke solutions when called upon to do so by our clients.

We have a UK Technical division in Amman who are very familiar with all UK and European standards and who support us daily.  In addition to the UK Technical team in Amman, we also have access to the specialists from other world regions who support us and our clients whenever systems are to be installed beyond the borders of Europe.

Meet The Team

Martin Altenbokum

Martin Altenbokum

Business Development Director

After studying physics and obtaining his doctorate in theoretical elementary particle physics, Martin received a fellowship for a research stay at the University of Illinois in the US.

The first position in his career was with MBB in Munich, where he was responsible for the avionics and armament of the Eurofighter.  Martin’s next role was a director’s position at GEA Air Treatment in Bochum, where he also was a member of the board and responsible for product development and production of airside air conditioning units.

This was followed by the management of Axima Refrigeration in Lindau. In this function, Martin developed new chiller ranges and introduced them to markets in Europe.  After an interlude in self-employment, he took over the management of Climaveneta Deutschland and established the company on the market in the long term.

Martin’s main interests are product development, market launches and scientific support of current market changes regarding standards, refrigerants, compressors and heat exchangers.

Anne Melling

Anne Melling

Sales Manager

Anne began her career in the air conditioning industry whilst living in South Africa where she worked for a large contractor and was mostly involved with the hospitality sector.  Having returned to the UK in 2000, she then joined a distributor and worked alongside their clients, designing air conditioning installations and selling predominately split and VRF type systems for several manufacturers.

Having gone on to gain experience working directly with several well known manufacturers, Anne then returned to contracting for several years, dealing with all business sectors and applications, mostly in and around London and the south-east.  During this time Anne gained valuable experience in all aspects of project design and project management.

Before joining Petra as Sales Manager, Anne spent time with a large chiller manufacturer with particular responsibility for securing service and maintenance contracts for the company.

In the meantime, Anne also completed a Masters Degree in Coaching and Mentoring and sees this experience and qualification as being something that influences her daily activities within Petra.
