Unlike Cold Store Rentals, which specialises in leasing long and medium-term rental and hire of cold rooms to the end user, Cold Store Distribution will sell to trade only, with a primary target market of refrigeration and catering equipment companies. They are the sole UK and Ireland based distributor of Misa cold rooms.
Kevin Raworth has spent his entire career in refrigeration manufacturing sales, often with responsibilities involving the supply and the distribution of cold rooms across the UK.
He said: “I have worked with Steve Prior, MD of Cold Store Rentals, before and I have been really impressed with the company. The opportunity to work with Steve and [fellow director] Tom Scott, and the chance to bring a new quality product and service to the trade sector, was an easy decision.
“Misa is a respected brand wholly owned by Epta Group and is recognised for the quality of its build, its proactive approach and many benefits and positive features. Steve, Tom and I have been impressed with their research and development focus and close attention they give to customer service. We believe this will provide us with extremely solid foundations on which to build.”
Steve Prior added: “We’re delighted to have Kevin as part of our team. He has an extensive knowledge of our industry and contacts as well as being hugely respected. Cold Store Distribution will add an exciting new dimension to our service offer. We feel that there is a real gap in the market, with trade customers frustrated by slow delivery, lengthy installation times and an inconsistent quality of service. This is a niche we intend to fill and satisfy those clients who are looking for excellence in every aspect: product, delivery, installation and long-term maintenance.”
