Green Cooling will provide the complete range of Iglu CO2 equipment to the UK market on an exclusive basis following a supply agreement between the two companies.
The new formal partnership builds on both companies’ strengths, enabling Iglu and Green Cooling to move forward and deliver an increased level of quality and service to UK specifiers, designers and contractors.
Italy-based Iglu is known for developing and producing a complete range of high-quality cooling and freezing equipment and prides itself on being able to provide the most flexible and professional restaurant environments possible from both front- and back-of-house perspectives.
Green Cooling has a strong reputation as a leading specialist provider of refrigeration systems with particular focus on delivering efficient and environmentally focused natural refrigerant CO2 designs to the foodservice sector.
The company boasts a strong track record of delivering high efficiency refrigeration equipment and systems to UK specifiers and designers.
Combining the manufacturing and design capability of Iglu with the specialist refrigeration capabilities of Green Cooling will mean that a complete system approach can be applied that is geared towards providing the most efficient and sustainable centralised remote refrigeration designs.
Centralised and remote natural refrigeration systems offer definite benefits over integral plug in cabinets, delivering significantly increased efficiency and reduced energy use whilst providing the user with a future proof installation (no F Gas legislation compliance issues) via the use of the natural refrigerant CO2.
For example an Iglu Wine Display Cabinet can now be provided with the latest most efficient and sustainable remote natural refrigerant cooling system.
This means that the wine cabinet will not only provide the usual high standards of Iglu design and functionality but will now also deliver with respect to providing the optimum levels of system efficiency and sustainability.
Therefore the application of a diligent design approach is an important factor where centralised and remote refrigeration equipment is concerned, basically because the efficiency and environmental benefits that are delivered via the use of natural refrigerants are reliant on a coordinated system design from the initial concept stages, which is the key to achieving the benefits summarised above.
“This is why the new alliance has been formed,” explained Armando Pujatti, CEO of Iglu. “We understand that CO2 refrigeration systems rely on the correct selection of all items – yes, the Iglu element is an important component but to operate at optimum design levels the accompanying CO2 refrigeration system must also be of the highest level of quality possible. This is why our partnership with Green Cooling is so important, enabling us to deliver this complete system approach encompassing high quality equipment and the most efficient and sustainable centralised remote refrigeration installations to our UK clients.”
From a Green Cooling perspective this alliance and partnership enables a complete system approach to be adopted,
Scott Pilkington, director of Green Cooling, commented: “Our approach to refrigeration design always takes into account front and back of house equipment and to be able to directly select and provide the high quality and proven range of Iglu CO2 equipment means we can now add significant value to our range of specifier, designer and contractor services.”
Green Cooling said the tie-up will allow it to enhance the type of specialist approach that CO2 refrigeration systems demand from both system design and installation perspective.
