These are exciting times for Steve Prior, Managing Director of the Cold Store Group of Companies and his growing team.
In 2014, Hampshire-based Cold Store Rentals was established to provide a complete range of bespoke, modular build, chilled & frozen rooms that suited any specific application. This year, following a review of the marketplace and the finalising of its strategic business investment plan, the company decided to launch two new enterprises: Cold Store Distribution and Koldpak. Due to its growing customer base and operations, the business also decided to move into a new warehouse and offices in Hook and recruit additional staff, all of whom have extensive experience working in the refrigeration industry.
Sourcing the best manufacturer of refrigeration equipment was identified as a key requirement for the success of the business. This has resulted in the Cold Store Group securing an exclusive distribution agreement with Italian firm Misa, Europe’s leading company in the production of cold rooms for the industrial and commercial refrigeration sector. Misa, wholly owned by the Epta group, has extensive experience as well as a range of patented technology and refrigeration solutions.
Over the past four years, Cold Store Rentals has been proud of its ability to offer bespoke sale/rental refrigeration solutions to the pet suppliers, catering and events, food, pharmaceutical and distribution market sectors. However, it recognised that to provide a more comprehensive solution that met the temperature control needs of businesses throughout the UK, two new businesses should be created: Cold Store Distribution and Koldpak Limited.
Cold Store Distribution will provide a range of packaged coldrooms to the trade which can be optimised to include Monoblock refrigeration systems and shelving if required. The company has its own in-house delivery service, using CSD dedicated transport to its customers, and also offers on-site installation of coldrooms, using a refrigeration and electrically trained CSD installation team.
Koldpak will specialise in supplying temperature hire solutions, offering a range of services and products including Process Cooling, Air Conditioning, Temporary Chill Stores, Portable Cold Stores and Heating by Boilers and Heat Pumps. For industry applications our design engineers will produce complete Temperature Control Solutions to ensure optimum production for liquid and air requirements.
Steve Prior says, “The objective of the new Cold Store Group of Companies is to be all-round temperature control specialists. Our goal will always be to give our clients bespoke, quality services which are delivered with a minimum of fuss and to the highest quality. Whatever our clients need, whether they require a sale or rental refrigeration product, a packaged coldroom which is delivered and installed promptly and efficiently or indeed another type of temperature control service, the Cold Store Group will help you to plan and implement the solution which is the right one for your business.”
