UK: Commercial refrigeration and air conditioning specialist Pinder Cooling & Heating has been appointed by Football League Two side Bradford City AFC to support the renovation of its function suites.
The Bradford-based firm is to install new cellar cooling systems at Bradford City AFC’s Utilita Energy Stadium to prepare for the club’s new pouring rights partner, Molson Coors.
Bradford City is currently undergoing a major refurbishment to its banqueting suites, with the intention to make improvements in the hospitality and banqueting suites in the JCT600 Family Stand.
Pinder Cooling and Heating will install two J&E Hall cellar cooling systems (JCC50E), both of which will be supplied by national refrigeration and air conditioning wholesale specialists, FSW.
Davide Longo, commercial director at Bradford City AFC, explained that the club was striving to provide a better product, both on and off the field. “One of the biggest areas of this was to address the situation in our hospitality and banqueting suites, focusing on how we can serve a better, colder beverage to supporters on matchdays and when hosting events.
Andrew Pinder, founder and director at Pinder Cooling & Heating said: “With the recent lockdown, a lot of hospitality businesses have had to close and turn off their equipment. This has caused a number of issues but with the roadmap so uncertain, businesses are quite rightly reluctant to invest in new equipment.
“With Bradford City undergoing a renovation, they recognised the importance of having new refrigeration systems installed and this will set them ahead. With them opting for the maintenance service, we can work alongside them to ensure any of the future problems that many are facing as we begin to reopen the economy, are limited.”
