JD Cooling Group, an independent supplier of bespoke cooling, power and control systems, opened its fifth regional office in Sittingbourne, Kent, in September 2018 and has since delivered in excess of £1.5 million worth of business in the region.

The office demonstrates JD Cooling’s commitment to delivering its comprehensive specialist services and industry leading technology to those in the South East, including major fruit growers, importers and packers.

Based at the new office, James Tumber, specialist services manager South East, brings with him a wealth of experience in ripening room technologies, cold storage and controlled atmosphere rooms to strengthen the Group’s capabilities. Tumber, former partner owner of Kent based Tudor Multi Services Ltd, joined JD Cooling after the two businesses combined to form the new Sittingbourne office.

John Dye, managing director, believes in continually improving the client offer: “This recent expansion is an exciting new chapter for JD Cooling. It recognises our investment in talent and experience in state-of-the-art cooling, power and control systems, including advancements in ripening room technology. We have flourished since our founding in 2000 with a focus on first class customer service and the South East office will continue this tradition to strengthen our relationships with new and existing clients across the region.”

Led by James Tumber and Shaun Webb, regional manager South East, the site employs 10 specialists including multi-skilled engineers and project managers; who are further supported by JD Cooling’s national engineering network and technical resources.

JD Cooling Group has five regional offices altogether throughout the UK and offers a comprehensive range of commercial refrigeration services including natural and industrial refrigeration, automation controls, power/electrical, heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
