Fowler Welch stays cool with Schmitz Cargobull’s new fridge unit

Fowler Welch is the first company in the UK to run a S.KO Cool Executive fitted with Schmitz Cargobull’s own refrigeration unit

Schmitz Cargobull has introduced its new own brand of temperature controlled refrigeration unit into the UK market – which is available exclusively on the manufacturer’s S.KO Cool Executive trailers.

The first trailer with the mono-temp unit fitted arrived from the reefer trailer production line in Vreden, Germany, and has entered service with Fowler Welch, one of the country’s largest ambient and chilled logistics providers.  The vehicle will be in operation on a dedicated trunking route between Slough, Northamptonshire and Lancashire, transporting chilled foodstuffs.

As the new refrigeration unit is manufactured alongside the production line, it means that Schmitz Cargobull can now offer customers the complete trailer – from the fridge, to the running gear, to the floor, chassis and body construction.

Nick Hay, Managing Director at Fowler Welch, said: “We’ve used Schmitz Cargobull refrigerated trailers since 2010 and we’ve always been very impressed with the quality of the product and after-sales support.  That’s why we’re very interested in the new refrigeration unit and we are looking forward to seeing how it performs.  If it’s anything like the quality of the actual Schmitz Cargobull trailers, we should be very happy.”

Paul Avery, Managing Director, Schmitz Cargobull UK, added: “We’re delighted to provide Fowler Welch with the first S.KO Cool Executive with our own refrigeration unit, as they are a true leader in their sector.  They’re always prepared to take advantage of the latest technology and with this new trailer, they are continuing a tradition of being industry innovators.”

The Schmitz Cargobull refrigeration unit is available on a lease-only basis on S.KO Cool Executive trailers through Cargobull Finance.
