Expanding Cool-Therm opens new branch near Reading



The latest site (near Junction 12 of the M4) brings to three the number of Cool-Therm outlets, joining the company’s headquarters near Bristol and recently opened office in Caerphilly, South Wales.


The company is a leading supplier of Daikin air conditioning equipment, with coveted D1 status, and a UK distributor for Italian-made Geoclima products, including the high efficiency Turbomiser chiller.


The new branch is headed by Alex Strong, a graduate of Reading University and former technical manager at the company, previously based in Bristol.


Alex has particular expertise in large chiller applications, up to 1500kW, and is a trained Turbocor engineer having attended specialist courses at the company’s headquarters in North America.


The new outlet will offer equipment sales and project management, service and maintenance of all types of air conditioning and refrigeration chillers, heat pumps, air handling units and fan coils.


Commenting on the opening, Ken Strong, managing director, said: “The business has continued to grow, and as part of expansion plans we wanted to open a second regional office on the east side of the M4 corridor to better serve major customers in the Thames Valley and South of England regions. Alex was the natural choice to set up and head up the new office.”  


Alex Strong said: “It’s an exciting opportunity to take the business forward. In addition to better serving existing clients, we see considerable potential to expand further in the region, given the concentration of end users and Blue Chip companies in this part of the country.”


Cool-Therm began trading at Bridgeyate near Bristol in 1992 with just three employees on the payroll. Today, there are 30.

The new branch is based at: Unit 26, Easter Park, Benyon Road, Reading, Berkshire RG7 4QB, Tel: 0118 9700808, Fax 0118 9702297
