Aggreko helps with preparations for Brexit

Supplier of mobile temperature control and energy services, Aggreko is raising awareness of how temporary cooling systems and chillers can help in times of business uncertainty such as Brexit.

With British food and pharmaceutical companies potentially experiencing disruption to frictionless trade in the near future, manufacturers, retailers and the warehousing sector may need to find further storage space to cope with demand around stockpiling food and medicine.

Temporary cooling systems and chillers that can transform ambient temperature warehousing into chilled/cold storage could represent a potential solution to this uncertain situation, according to Aggreko. These chillers, which modularly range from 50kW to 1500kW and maintain a temperature as low as (minus) -40°C, give companies looking to stockpile the option of creating more storage space at optimum temperatures without needing to make permanent structural changes.

“Last week’s comments from president Von der Leyen on the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and trade means that stockpiling is back on the agenda for many companies, particularly in the food and pharmaceutical sector,” says Matt Watson, sales manager at Aggreko. “However, organisations considering stockpiling goods may find themselves in the unenviable position of only needing extra capacity to store materials while this situation is resolved.”
