One of the first companies to champion the green agenda, IsoCool was set up in May 2002 to provide energy, carbon and cost saving process cooling solutions to manufacturers. To achieve this the company pioneered a ‘refurb before your replace’ approach to cooling – preferring to repair, upgrade and retro-fit energy saving equipment to existing systems before considering large scale replacement. It worked – within just three weeks IsoCool secured a major contract with Sharpak (then Sharp Interpak), the UK’s foremost rigid plastic packaging manufacturer.
A decade on and IsoCool is now one of the leading process cooling specialists in the UK. The company has completed more than £2m worth of business with its first client, Sharpak, and counts top manufacturers such as Logoplaste, Magna International and Carclo as long-standing customers.
In fact, IsoCool’s reputation for intelligent energy saving solutions and excellent workmanship has led to demand from manufacturers across the globe. IsoCool’s latest international win involves a major contract with one of the biggest construction group of companies in the Middle East.
Turnover for the company has increased year on year, and IsoCool is celebrating its 10th birthday with record-breaking sales figures. Nigel Hallett, Managing Director of IsoCool is delighted. He said:
“10 years is a big milestone for the company. When I set up IsoCool most process cooling companies were focused on selling entirely new systems, but I knew that there was a more cost-effective way for companies to save energy – I just didn’t know that the idea would take off so well! It’s a real testament to the hard work of the team, and we’re overjoyed to celebrate 10 years with a record turnover”.
