The Co-OP has trialled the curtains and identified annual savings over £130,000 and annual reduction in the store’s carbon footprint of over 500,000kg.  Phases two and three of the trial are expected to produce further annual savings of over £1.5m and 6,400 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Nick Cairns, regional energy manager, Co-operative Group, says:  “We were looking for a solution for our coldrooms that was highly energy efficient, practical, cost efficient, first quality and user friendly. In trials Tempro met and exceeded all these criteria. The roll out has been very well received by our colleagues in-store who like the look and feel of the product and the financial and environmental impact has been fantastic”.

Brian Seymour, chairman, Seymour Manufacturing International says:  “We were, of course, confident of the performance of the material and felt sure that the Co-operative Group would experience some significant energy savings through the installation of the curtains.  It is though, nonetheless, very gratifying to see the in-depth analysis produce such impressive figures and look forward to further savings once the whole trial is completed.”

The Tempro curtains were  printed for the Co-operative Group by Steve Mills of George Barker & (Co) and installed by Northants Engineering Solutions.
