JCI winners bag holdalls


UK: Three customers who registered on the Johnson Controls chiller parts website have walked away with Italian leather travel bags worth several hundred pounds.

To mark the official UK launch of York PureOil chiller lubricant, all those who registered on the EasyParts chiller spares website by midnight on January 24 were entered into a prize draw.

The three winners were Sean Fosten of Accurate Cooling Services, Phill Green of McVeigh Technical Solutions and Mandy Smith of Refrigeration Aberdeen.

York PureOil chiller lubricant has been launched in response to the rise of counterfeit refrigeration oils, which can damage compressors and result in expensive repairs and downtime for end users.

“PureOil is available via our EasyParts spares website, and we were keen to encourage contractors to make use of this quick and convenient online ordering system,” said customer services manager Kelly Nash.
