A well-regarded specialist in cold store provision, Steve Prior has announced the launch of Cold Store Rentals, a new specialist food and hospitality refrigeration company which he has formed in partnership with other respected industry figures.
Prior has experience of the cold store market in previous posts at Viessmann Cold Technology and ICS Cool Energy.
Cold Store Rentals provides bespoke cold stores for rental, rent-to-buy, or purchase. The firm has a complete range of bespoke, modular build, chilled and frozen rooms to suit virtually any application.
All are fully weather-proofed so can be used outside, typically either for events or situations where indoor space is at a premium.
Steve Prior explains: “My colleagues and I had listened to customer frustrations for many years, and so have created an offer to make life much easier for busy food industry executives.
"Between Cold Store Rental’s founders, we have 125 years of combined industry knowledge, and we believe our offer to be unique in the market.”
Cold Store Rentals specialises in quick and easy installations for short term (one day to three months), medium term (three to twelve months), and long-term rentals (three to five years), as well as equipment leasing and sales.
Prior continues: “In the lead up to our public launch, we have already created a custom-built cold room to an award-winning inn in the Cotswolds, another to a microbrewery in Abingdon, as well as a large pharmaceutical installation in Birmingham.
"We are excited to be giving valuable help to those in the food industry, and others such as pharmaceuticals and distribution, with cold store issues.”
CSR also provides a large range of upright and point of sale fridges and freezers for both sale and rental. Cold Store Rentals’ engineers meet F-Gas and electrical certifications and all have CSCS safety qualifications.
