Coolair celebrates 40 years with new fleet

Helen Sharratt accepts the keys to the new fleet from James Walton, regional business sales manager at Citroen UK

UK: Manchester-based air conditioning contractor Coolair Equipment has a new vehicle fleet and a new look for 2020 – their 40th anniversary year.

The new fleet of 20 Citroen vans will be used by Coolair’s engineers operating from the company’s network of sites around the UK. This includes six Berlingo XL small vans for the after-sales division, 13 Dispatch XL vans for install teams and a Relay, long-wheelbase van for Coolair Equipment’s Manchester-based ducting team.

Each vehicle has been wrapped in digitally-printed bespoke graphics and features refreshed branding. 

“The new fleet is the highest-spec available to ensure maximum driver comfort and safety and we are very excited about the new look. It’s a great way to kick-start our 40th anniversary,” said Coolair Equipment finance director Helen Sharratt.
