Hubbard Products has strengthened its commercial refrigeration division with the addition of energy efficient Daikin refrigeration products and the refrigeration business team, as Hubbard paves the way forward for commercial refrigeration.
Paul Cornwell and Nick May were transferred from Daikin Air Conditioning UK to Hubbard Products, in a strategic decision which ensures that refrigeration expertise and products are all coordinated throughout Hubbard Products, strengthening the department and giving customers a wide range of refrigeration solutions.
Daikin’s innovative and unique Heat Recovery Conveni-Pack, providing retailers with genuine free heat recovered from the refrigeration cycle, and ZEAS Refrigeration Condensing Units, are all now available through Hubbard Products, along with technical support. Daikin is renowned for high efficiencies, small footprint, ultra-low noise levels, as well as very low refrigerant leakage rates and reliability.
Paul Cornwell has significant practical refrigeration experience as an engineer, service supervisor and in numerous management roles across service and contracting organisations. Nick May possesses considerable experience in the design and promotion of high-quality refrigeration products, including heat recovery and alternative technology solutions for ‘natural refrigerant gases’ for the convenience store sector.
Dougie Stoddart, commercial director at Hubbard Products, explained why the two new members will add value to its convenience store customers: “The ability to integrate Daikin’s significant knowledge and expertise in low leakage, highly efficient refrigeration equipment with Hubbard Products' established commercial refrigeration team will allow us to offer one of the widest ranges of convenience store heating and cooling solutions in a single package. The benefits of such systems go far beyond the traditional convenience store refrigeration USPs of low energy usage, reduced running costs and low noise. By combining heat recovery and air conditioning with a single refrigeration system, users can benefit from reduced insurance costs, by removing the need for gas-fired heating plant, through to low-cost financing and support from the Carbon Trust Green Business Fund. This applies equally to individual ‘symbol’ group franchisees and to larger multiple retailers who can all benefit from reduced running costs and a superior carbon footprint.”
