Building and Facilities News has presented Cooltherm with the 'Air Conditioning Specialist of the Year Award' for 2017.
Ever since its establishment in 1992 by founder Ken Strong, Cooltherm has been impressing customers with its award-winning range of low-carbon cooling solutions. Despite a management buyout altering the structure of the business in 2016 (following Ken’s retirement), the organisation has continued to go from strength to strength and its personnel has remained true to its deep-rooted family-based and customer oriented values.
Cooltherm is a forward-thinking supplier of high performance cooling, heat pump and air flow innovations and promises customers efficiency and reliability as a recognised expert in the development and distribution of professional air conditioning structures. Specialising in industrial and commercial water chillers, the group can competently design, install and maintain this equipment for various process, data and comfort cooling applications.
The success experienced has been prominent within a cross-section of markets, as the quality products have been extensively utilised in retail stores, offices, hospitals, hotels, data centres and universities across the country.
Its varied customer base was built progressively and now includes everyone from blue chip companies and banks to users who have an environmental focus and a demand for precision engineering excellence.
One of Cooltherm’s most notable innovations is the Turbomiser™. The ultra-efficient HFO Turbocor based chiller devised by Geoclima, stands out within the market because of its ability to save up to 50% of energy (when compared to conventional chillers) whilst decreasing running rates and emissions.
Cooltherm is constantly striving for progression and have taken the Turbomiser to the next level with the introduction of Circlemiser. This is more advanced in the sense it has all the strengths associated with the original system but can guarantee, in addition, an increased air cooled surface area without heightening the footprint of the machine.
Rob Young, Cooltherm Director said “2016 was an amazing year for us; we were especially active in the city of London and undertook several technically challenging chiller and heat pump projects for which we won three industry awards – the H&V News Award, Architects Journal, and ACR Heat Pump Awards. Last year also represented massive growth for Cooltherm in terms of both equipment and project sales, and it also saw an increased portfolio of service and maintenance customers. 2017, which also happens to be our 25th anniversary, is looking set to be another good year whereby we will maintain this stable level of growth.”
