Testimonials

“We have worked with Arcool Refrigeration for over a year now and are delighted with the work carried out so far. Our company “Flower Centre” is a large flower wholesale centre, so all project work needed to be of the highest quality, which is what we got with Arcool. They were responsible for the large cold rooms installed with a specialized walk-in sales section with glass walls and an automatic glass door. The result was a very aesthetically pleasing flower display cold room with high quality finishes, to give our customers an enjoyable shopping experience with maximum exposure. Arcoolunderstand the high standards that our company have and are most efficient in delivering well within time limits. I would highly recommend working with them.”

“After successful completion of the Diplomat Global SA chilled warehousing project, we were only too happy to work with Arcool Refrigeration again. This time we trusted their expertise with a new meat production plant where they were contracted to design, install and commission all the refrigeration requirements. Arcool recommended and incorporated many innovative design features, especially regarding energy saving and low running costs, a vital factor in the design and execution of projects today. Their commitment to quality and reliability, from the supplied equipment and materials to workmanship and after sales service, is of a very high standard. This makes Arcool our preferred supplier and we look forward to working with them in future.”
