Catering equipment dealer Sprint and refrigeration brand Gram have bagged a three-year contract in the higher education sector worth a cool £750,000.
The heavyweight deal, due to run until 2015, will see Worcestershire-based Sprint install and maintain a range of Gram’s latest equipment at the University of Warwick.
The schedule includes 250 upright fridges and 250 upright freezers, as well as a selection of compact undercounter fridges and freezers, all of which will be fitted on site and in halls of residence.
Jason Cunliffe, sales director at Sprint, said the company was delighted at the win, particularly given the effort involved in ensuring the kit was in line with the university’s sustainable purchasing policy.
“We had to undergo rigorous checks to meet all of the university’s energy efficiency requirements and comply with BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method),” he said.
Gram UK managing director, Glenn Roberts, added that the fridges and freezers have all been designed with efficiency and sustainability in mind.
“By using hydrocarbon technology we were able to offer the most efficient form of energy saving equipment. All the stock we are supplying has a five year warranty,” he said.
