Reed Boardall marks 30-years with EJM Engineered Systems

Boroughbridge, UK: Reed Boardall has marked the 30th anniversary working with refrigeration installer EJM Engineered Systems.

EJM designed, installed and maintains all four cold stores at Reed Boardall’s Boroughbridge site. In May, Reed Boardall completed a 110,000sq ft extension to its newest cold store, expanding capacity to 168,000 pallets.

Andrew Baldwin, managing director, Reed Boardall (pictured above right) cold storage division, said: “Fostering long-term relationships with both customers and suppliers is one of the tenets of our business. We believe that by working together closely over a number of years, we can develop insight and synergies which make us mutually more productive.

“EJM is one of our oldest suppliers and, like Reed Boardall, they place great emphasis on being independent, cost-effective and customer focussed. Over the last 30 years, the two companies have enjoyed a very constructive and open partnership with EJM working seamlessly as part of our team, keeping our cold stores running smoothly as well as being on hand to provide valuable advice on extending our facilities as the business has grown. We’re pleased to have aligned ourselves with one of the leaders in its field.”

Paul Cable, managing director, EJM Engineered Systems, (pictured above left) said: “Having last year celebrated our company’s 40th anniversary, this marks another important milestone for us. Our chairman, Matt Morton, signed the first contract with Keith Boardall and Guy Reed 30 years ago and, since then, the relationship between the two businesses has spanned three ‘generations’ of managing directors. Our cultures are a great fit – we both value loyalty and honesty, and have mutual respect for one another.
“Reed Boardall has always been visionary in its refrigeration plant design; from the initial concept, it builds in the ability for future extensions to enable it to grow with its customers. It also requires very high standards within its cold stores, and we have consistently provided this, delivering robust plant with energy efficient enhanced design which has stood the test of time. With over 9,000kW of installed refrigeration capacity across the site, Reed Boardall has one of the largest and most modern facilities of its kind in the UK and we are proud to have supported the company for the full journey.”
