CoolKit adds 100 vans to its stock

Burnley, UK: CoolKit has spent £2.4m on over 100 new vans for conversion to meet expected demand from customers emerging from the coronavirus pandemic.

Rupert Gatty, chief executive, CoolKit, said: “In our 15 years in business, CoolKit has built a strong reputation among suppliers and partners, which, during the pandemic has enabled us to navigate difficult situations during lockdown, including near total closure of dealer networks and the DVLA. 

The customers who placed orders with us during this time absolutely valued our capacity to get the work done straightaway without compromising on the quality they have come to expect from CoolKit. 

“By continuing to be prepared in this way we can help to eliminate delays in vehicle sourcing – which is especially valuable whilst there are other delays we cannot control, such as those at the DVLA.

“The first of the new stock is now arriving, and we are ready with a stock of insulating kits and refrigeration units to suit a wide variety of different applications including chilled, frozen and multi-temperature.”

The new stock includes fossil-fuelled and electrically powered vans from manufacturers including Vauxhall, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Citroen, Renault, MAN as well as newcomer SAIC Maxus.
