UK: The Co-Operative Group has named commercial refrigeration equipment supplier Epta UK as its Direct Supplier of the Year for the second year running.

The 2017 award again recognises Epta’s performance in account support, consistency of strong KPIs, and sound supplier partnership input to jointly help the Co-op development programme.

This is the latest Co-op award to Epta, the company previously receiving numerous accolades at the Co-op’s annual Construction Awards in recent years.

One of the latest development Epta UK has worked on with the Co-op is the energy saving Roll In Milk cabinet, shortlisted for this year’s RAC Cooling Awards Retail Project of the Year. The new roll-in cabinets are fitted with doors which have minimum impact on current operations yet transform the cabinet from EEI class D to B, making them acceptable under new EEI regulations.

“We are delighted that the teams efforts are celebrated once again and show that our expertise in the industry is being recognised by our key customers,” commented Epta UK commercial director John Austin-Davies.
