UK: Bitzer has appointed Wirral-based contractor Flynn Refrigeration as its authorised marine service partner for the UK.

Headquartered in Birkenhead, Flynn Refrigeration was established in 2007 and today operates as part of a global network of marine cooling specialists, with partners in Cyprus, Greece and Italy.

“Recognition as our authorised Bitzer marine service partner cements more than 15 years of collaboration with Flynn Refrigeration Ltd,” said Bitzer UK MD Kevin Glass. “The company has deep experience of the specialist requirements of marine refrigeration and air conditioning, which can be challenging due to the harsh environment in which systems operate.”

As an authorised Bitzer partner, Flynn Refrigeration has access to Bitzer’s full range of compressors, spare parts and system components, such as heat exchangers, oil separators and controls, which often include specialist options for use in marine applications. 

Flynn Refrigeration’s operations manager Josh Flynn said: “It’s our job to ensure customers’ compressors and cooling systems run efficiently and reliably, and we understand the urgency vessel operators face when they don’t. Being an authorised Bitzer marine service partner means we have the network and resources to deliver the services they need, when and wherever required.”
