Air conditioning and refrigeration distributor Climate Center has opened three new branches in London. The £250k + investment in Send (Surrey), Greenford and Battersea is part of a wider initiative to ensure contractors have easy access to products when they need them.
Location is key to all of the new branches. Send is at the junction where the A3 crosses the M25. It is also close to Woking, Guildford and Leatherhead. Greenford shares a site with Pipe Center and is located on the A40, close for any contractors travelling to London from Birmingham and the North. The Battersea branch is also just off the A3 and ideal for customers working in and around Central London.
This means Climate Center now has a network of four branches in the Central London area which includes Deptford, King’s Cross and a recent relocation from Bow to Canning Town.
The branch in Send is also a first in the network to share a site with fellow Wolseley UK brands, Plumb Center, Parts Center and Drain Center. Robert said: “Being located on the same site means customers can access a full range of HVAC products in the same visit. It’s already been well received by customers and there are plans to replicate the model elsewhere.”
Climate Center’s core product range has been introduced to all three branches including refrigeration, bracketry, copper pipe and air conditioning.
A number of jobs have also been created to staff the new premises. Lyndon Davis has been appointed as Climate Sales Manager in Send Alan Rush in Greenford and Keith Davis in Battersea.
