Integral opens Faversham office
UK: Integral has opened a new office in Faversham, Kent, as it continues its expansion into the refrigeration and industrial HVAC sectors.
Integral added an industrial refrigeration and HVAC division to its commercial refrigeration interests last year. This latest expansion increases Integral’s offices to 17.
“The new base will allow us to house industrial sales, design and projects all together under the same roof to enable us to provide excellent levels of service to more clients in this sector,” explained Simon Gurr, Integral’s recently appointed industrial refrigeration technical director.
“This carefully planned expansion enhances our ‘one-team approach’ of providing a truly national operation with a local service point,” added Integral’s industrial refrigeration divisional director David Bostock.
The Faversham office has space for further expansion, as David added: “We will continue to respond to the market by extending our reach while never compromising the quality of our services.”
