Foster celebrates golden anniversary

Foster Refrigerator celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and it is planning to do it in style, with a calendar of commemorative events throughout 2018. 

Foster Refrigerator is 50 this year.

In the year that The Beatles released their revolutionary The White Album, Foster Refrigerator was just starting to produce a few commercial refrigeration masterpieces of its own.

Foster Refrigerator (UK) was registered in 1968 and its King’s Lynn factory opened the same year, becoming the first company to produce commercial refrigeration in the UK.

The plant was extended two years later and the site has grown over the years, with Foster now operating across six plants spread across 14 acres.

Foster Refrigerator has achieved much in the past half century, with highlights including being granted a Royal Warrant by appointment of Her Majesty the Queen in 1994, and becoming the first and only commercial refrigeration company to attain the Carbon Trust Standard.

“We are delighted to have reached our golden anniversary,” Paul Veried, managing director of Foster said. “It is a great accomplishment. Our history is so important to us, and along with a strong sense of innovation, we have a great foundation for the years to come. I’d like to thank all of our loyal customers – without you, we wouldn’t be Foster.”

“Many of our staff have worked within the company for over 40 years,” he continued. “Their experience and knowledge is invaluable and they’re still so passionate about what they do, which is vital in teaching future generations what it means to be Foster.”

Foster’s sister company, Gamko, is also celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, and will be joining in with celebrations of its own.

Look out for more announcements and an exciting competition coming soon.
