Greg Spence on Partnering for Growth

Aberdeen-based Reftrade UK is a market-leading specialist in the sale and lease of both new and used refrigerated containers and portable units.

The company is a recently formed venture between Aberdeen founded Abcool Ltd and Dutch refrigeration firm Reftrade, which under the new partnership will see Abcool trading as Reftrade UK.

"Becoming part of the Reftrade group has allowed us to inject fresh investment in the company and add to our already comprehensive fleet of units, including equipment expressing less CO2 emissions and consuming less energy," commented Reftrade UK managing director Greg Spence.

Reftrade UK offers dedicated refrigeration facilities that exceed both British and European safety standards for the offshore and onshore markets.

With over 30 different product designs, Reftrade UK offers an ideal solution for all temporary or permanent cold storage requirements. Using an integrated business model, the company can supply, deliver and advise on rental and sales of all DNV 2.7-1 / EN 12079 storage reefers including manufacturing for bespoke projects and zoned units.

"The Reftrade UK team have extensive expertise in offshore rental of refrigerated containers, project managed builds of bespoke zone 1 and 2 explosion proof containers, and sale of 10ft, 20ft or bespoke refrigeration units.

"Our main focus is on becoming the number one supplier of refrigerated units through a reputation for supplying highest quality products and good customer service," continued Greg.

In addition to its refrigerated containers, Reftrade UK is also equipped to supply clients with a complete range of offshore transportation and storage containers, baskets and tanks. All units are manufactured to the highest standards to ensure clients receive safe and reliable equipment.
