ICS Cool Energy has expanded its hire division with the appointment of a management team dedicated to cold stores.

The newly created team will manage the firm’s range of low to ultra-low temperature cold storage solutions, the largest fleet of its kind in the UK.

ICS Cool Energy’s collection of cold storage solutions are used throughout the food and drink manufacturing industry, with its temperature-controlled containers available in lengths ranging from 10 feet to 40 feet.

The stores can operate as long or short term solutions and can be set at temperatures between -40C to +30C. The SuperFreezer setting can reach temperatures as low as -70C.

Ralph Howes has been hired as major accounts manager, while Lisa Townsley and Kayla Shaw will fill the roles of business development manager for the south and north of the UK respectively. Finally, Mike Elver was named as the senior sales engineer.

All four boast extensive experience working within cold storage, with Elver having spent the past six years at ICS Cool Energy and Townsley arriving from sister company Trane UK.

New team brings ‘long-standing experience’

UK sales manager for the ICS Cool Energy hire division, Andy Delday-Roberts, said that the freshly formed management team would help the firm build on past successes and deliver an even better customer experience moving forward.

The experience and knowledge of the cold storage industry brought by this team, will allow them to deliver the support and expertise our customers expect from ICS Cool Energy​,” said Delday-Roberts.

ICS Cool Energy is known for its capability to deploy hire units within 24hours to existing customers and for the back-up and service from experienced engineers. Bringing long-standing experience, our cold store team will ensure our customers are in good hands and receive solutions that precisely fit their needs and help them run their operations efficiently and effectively​.”
