Aqua Cooling adds northern facility

UK: Hampshire-based temperature control company Aqua Cooling has added a northern manufacturing facility and office in Scunthorpe. 

The site offers warehousing, offices, a large rear yard of over 0.7 acres and a fabrication shop. The latter will be home to Aqua’s mechanical services team who will manufacture a range of products including custom built chillers and pump skids. In addition, they’ll be able to carry out product modifications in-house as well as onsite fabrication and installation works for clients.

“Finding a new, permanent home for the mechanical services team will enable us to increase our UK manufacturing capability” commented Ben Harris, Aqua’s mechanical services manager. 

“We’ll manufacture bespoke products and systems at Scunthorpe, rather than overseas so it will bring both manufacturing, and employment opportunities to the local area.”

The site will also allow Aqua to store more of their rental fleet locally, as well as stock units and will provide a second base for their northern team of hire, sales, and service engineers.

On the South Park Industrial Estate, the new facility is just three miles from Scunthorpe town centre, five miles from the motorway and has easy access to nearby air and rail links.

In addition to the head office in Eastleigh, near Southampton, Aqua already has regional sites in Glasgow and Leeds. Founded in 2000, Aqua Cooling is experienced in designing, installing, and servicing a range of temperature control solutions for purchase or hire.
