Panasonic has partnered with Kooltech, one of the UK’s largest independently-owned distributors of refrigeration and air conditioning components.
Kooltech will now distribute Panasonic’s full range of commercial refrigeration CO2 condensing units, used within coldrooms, from its seven branches across the UK.
Paul Taylor, Panasonic UK sales manager explained: “We are delighted to welcome Kooltech on board as a UK distributor of our cold chain CO2 condensing units. The company has a large, knowledgeable team, who are skilled in energy saving solutions. Their reach will help us satisfy customer demand for new solutions in the changing world of refrigeration and to help futureproof businesses within the retail and cold chain sectors.”
The Panasonic commercial refrigeration CO2 range has been developed for small to medium capacity applications within the retail and foodservice sectors and is suited for installations in small supermarkets, convenience stores and garage forecourt retail operations. Units in the range work can be used in refrigerated and freezer showcases, as well as walk-in freezers and coldrooms, and could offer a refrigeration solution for restaurants and hotels.
Eddie Mills, national marketing and positioning manager for Kooltech commented: “With new F-Gas regulations coming into force and with specifiers and installers being more aware of the greener alternatives, we are seeing an increase in customer demand shifting towards more natural refrigerants such as CO2 for their refrigeration needs.
“Having investigated alternatives, we found that Panasonic is ahead of the curve with its CO2 range. The company has over 10 years of development behind the product range, and customers and installers speak highly of the energy efficiency, compact size and reliability.
“Kooltech can provide complete design and technical support. We are delighted to now be working with Panasonic and to be able to offer our customers a CO2 solution for their refrigeration applications.”
