Andrews opens London Chiller Hire depot

Andrews-chiller-for-hireUK: Andrews Chillers Hire has established a service depot in London to provide a faster service for businesses in the capital.

The new 10,000m² service depot, on the Lombard Business Park in Charlton, is the latest in Andrews Chillers’ national network of more than 25 depots strategically positioned throughout the UK. Each provides 24-hour access to specialist engineering staff that can respond quickly, evaluate site requirements and arrange urgent delivery of the right type of chiller.

Andrews Chiller Hire operates with an extensive range of energy efficient air-cooled fluid chillers with sizes from 1kW upwards. The company says that the diversity in chiller designs, sizes and functionality enables it to offer solutions for temporary replacement of failing or under-performing cooling units, providing additional short-term chilled storage facilities to food manufacturers as well as helping maintain the correct water temperature for processing and manufacturing plants. 

A dedicated service and engineering team operate directly out of the new London depot, with the company promising to be able to respond to emergency situations within four hours.
