Climate Center opens three new London branches

Leading air conditioning and refrigeration distributor, Climate Center has opened three new branches in London.

Leading air conditioning and refrigeration distributor, Climate Center has opened three new branches in London.

The £250k + investment into the branches, which are located in Send (Surrey), Greenford and Battersea, comes as part of a wider initiative to ensure contractors have easy access to products when they need them.

Location is key to all of the new branches. Send is located on the junction where the A3 crosses the M25 and therefore immediately accessible for anyone travelling into or out of London. It is also in close proximity to Woking, Guildford and Leatherhead. Greenford shares a site with Pipe Center and is located on the A40 - close for any contractors travelling to London from Birmingham and the North. The Battersea branch is strategically located in South West London and is also just off the A3 ideal for customers working in and around Central London. This means Climate Center now has a network of four branches in the Central London area which includes Deptford, Kings Cross & a recent relocation from Bow to Canning Town.

National development director for Climate Center, Robert Franklin said: “Greenford is particularly well positioned for customers wanting to pick up products en route in the morning as it opens from 6am. West London is difficult to navigate and so we wanted to open a branch where contractors can leave their vans and take the tube in to London. It’s located close to the Greenford underground station from where it only takes 25 minutes to get into central London.”

The branch in Send is also a first in the network to share a site with fellow Wolseley UK brands, Plumb Center, Parts Center and Drain Center.

Mr Franklin added: “Being located on the same site means customers can access a full range of HVAC products in the same visit. It’s already been well received by customers and there are plans to replicate the model elsewhere.”

Climate Center’s core product range has been introduced to all three branches including refrigeration, bracketry, copper pipe and air conditioning.

A number of jobs have also been created to staff the new premises. Lyndon Davis has been appointed as Climate sales manager in Send Alan Rush in Greenford and Keith Davis in Battersea. All of the new sales managers are seasoned professionals within the HVAC industry and are supported by two teams of branch colleagues, drivers and warehouse operatives.

The new branches are located at:

•           Burnt Common Crossroads, Portsmouth Road, Send, GU23 7JY

•           Unit 23 Derby Road, Metropolitan Business Park, Greenford, UB6 8UJ

•           Unit 5, Battersea Business Park, 102-104 Stewart’s Road, London, SW8 4UY
