Need a High-Quality Air Conditioning Refrigeration Company?

The need for temperature control is present in almost every industry. It is central, of course, when it comes to catering, food processing and hospitality, and absolutely vital in healthcare, science and engineering. Elsewhere, it is an essential component in making our offices and workplaces comfortable and is increasingly widespread in residential applications as well.

Not only is the use of a reliable contractor important in the installation of these vital systems, but they will become increasingly important as older systems age and require maintenance. In the UK, where the weather can be erratic, a well-installed and serviced system can be the difference between high energy efficiency and costly breakdowns that can ruin stock and productivity.

A Comprehensive Service

We have been a leading air conditioning & refrigeration company since 1991. Our installations are known for their brilliant workmanship, tailored solutions and our services and repairs, which are carried out by the most knowledgeable and dedicated professionals in the business. That is why you’ll find our systems and maintenance contracts held by some of the biggest names in consumer goods, aerospace, automotive and civil engineering as well as throughout local authorities.

Air Conditioning

As an air conditioning company, we both install and service a vast range of commercial systems, including, but not limited to:

  • Split type systems
  • VRF and VRV
  • Chillers
  • Stand-alone portable

Our air conditioning installations are carried out to the highest standards, but we recognise that even the most well-constructed systems will need quality maintenance and regular check-ups.
