Worcester based SPAL Automotive UK is hoping for continued summer weather as sales of its cooling fans installed in refrigerated vehicles hots up.
Fuelled by demand in the expanding refrigerated home delivery market, Italian owned SPAL has experienced its best sales month ever in the UK as Matthew Morris, MD explains:
“As more and more supermarkets take to the roads with fleets of refrigerated delivery vans, orders for our components are going up. With this hot weather you need a reliable high performance fan to keep the cargo chilled or frozen so that it arrives in perfect condition for the customer.”
Having set ‘pretty aggressive sales growth figures’ for the year of 35% up on the previous year, SPAL reports current sales are already outstripping this figure and order books are looking very good for later in the year too.
Matthew adds: “As well as the supermarkets, other businesses have spotted opportunities for refrigerated home delivery and we hope to be at the centre of this upward trend whatever the weather.”
