Uxbridge-based Fri-Jado UK has installed a 5m chilled counter alongside further cooking and merchandising equipment at a new 10,000 sq ft Marks & Spencer (M&S) Foodhall in Chichester, West Sussex.

The chilled counter runs on a CO2 system, which is not only energy efficient, but also demonstrates zero ozone depleting characteristics and a negligible global warming potential.
A feature of the counter units is their one piece square glass design, which eliminates the need for a metal framework, providing an unobstructed view of food for increased sales. Internal illumination further enhances product visibility. The glass fascia lifts up within its own space for ease of cleaning and customer safety.

Fri-Jado’s sister company, TEC Line, worked closely with the contractors at the store in the installation and commissioning of the equipment supplied. In addition, Fri-Jado personnel spent several days on site, before and after the store opening, providing hands-on training to ensure that M&S employees were fully familiar with the equipment used.

Mike Littlewood, managing director, Fri-Jado UK, said: “This project demonstrates, once again, our ability to act as a turnkey provider of state-of- the-art equipment for food to go retailers, not only in terms of supply and installation, but also comprehensive after sales support and training.”
