CoolKit boosts export sales

Burnley. Lancashire, UK: CoolKit has boosted its export sales in the Netherlands with ClimaRunners.

ClimaRunners, a Netherlands-based refrigerated vehicle converter, sources CoolKit’s products. Jan Bert Verburg, director, ClimaRunners, says: “CoolKit has been a trustworthy supplier of their conversion kits and have allowed us to provide unfailing refrigerated conversions for our customers in the Netherlands.

“The key factor for using the product is the huge payload improvement offered by the lightweight kit compared to the more traditional methods used here in the Netherlands,” he says.

CoolKit increased exports by 70% last year and says performance this year has also been strong. Mark Beaton, sales specialist, CoolKit, says: “Our insulated lining kits are manufactured using extruded polyester, also known as XPS. This is a rigid insulation formed with polystyrene polymer and fabricated using an extrusion process. The advantages are greater thermal performance, minimal water absorption and high compressive strength, perfect for ClimaRunners’ customers.”

CoolKit also exports kits to Greece, Malta, and Ireland.
