Climate Center, the UK’s leading refrigeration and air conditioning distributor, has renewed its support for the Cooling Industry Awards with a further three-year commitment as headline sponsor.
Climate Center sales and marketing director Scott Craig said: “Everyone is looking for cleaner, greener, quicker and safer solutions. The awards offer a feast of inspiration. Attendance is now virtually compulsory for anyone wanting to keep fully up-to-date with everything significant and important happening in the sector.”
The company has been lead sponsor since the Awards were launched in 2005, believing that the Cooling Awards’ recognition of innovation, high standards and environmental excellence reflect its own values as a company.
Scott Craig, said: “As a market leader, we recognise the importance of technical innovation in improving productivity and transforming ways of working. The Cooling Awards provide a national stage to stimulate and celebrate achievement, and encourage wider adoption of the best new solutions the industry has to offer.”
Wolseley UK, parent of Climate Center, was one of the first businesses in the UK to be awarded the coveted Carbon Trust Standard after reducing the carbon footprint of its activities by nearly 18 per cent.
The company’s award-winning Sustainable Building Center, located at Leamington Spa, features working examples of proven environmentally sustainable technology, including the latest heat pumps and solar energy systems.
Mr Craig welcomed the Cooling Awards’ quest for field-tested innovation: “The truth is there is no shortage of innovation in the marketplace. As distributors we are approached with new products and solutions almost daily, and our specialist teams are constantly active evaluating new technologies. Effectively meeting the environmental challenge, however, requires green solutions that are both practical and make business sense. We are committed to identifying and fostering new solutions that meet this need.”
Mr Craig underlined the awards’ appeal across the industry:
“They offer a unique opportunity for the cooling community to come together – contractors, manufacturers, consultants, distributors and end users – to network and bask in the achievements of the past year. We have been fortunate to be a past winner, and I know how much winning a Cooling Award means.”
The Cooling Awards are gathering pace for 2013, with new sponsors signing up and the first of the entries coming in. The deadline of May 22 gives companies a ten-week window to get entries together - and the chance to get recognised in the industry’s most respected and sought-after awards.
