ACE Refrigeration

Established in Glasgow in 1951, our knowledge, breadth of experience and professional indemnity set us apart from others and enable us to have a very flexible approach to projects and working partnerships.  We are recognised as the leading supplier of refrigeration systems for the catering, hospitality and food processing industries throughout the UK.

Manufacturer Independence

ACE Refrigeration is manufacturer independent and able to offer customers solutions which best meet  their needs.

As well as complying with the legal requirements of ever-changing legislation, replacing tired and  inefficient equipment can have a major benefit on your bottom line – some of our recent installations have had a payback period of less than 2 years based on the energy savings received; some customers have  saved up to 25% off their energy bills.

Independent Testing

Due to our worldwide sourcing ability, we can offer clients independent testing with specific equipment from all the major manufacturers to ensure we are recommending the best products to suit your specific needs, ensuring production efficiency as well as value for money. Blast freezers were to play a major role at the new world class cook freeze production unit for NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde ; the Irinox blast freezers sourced by ACE gave by far the best results – producing 500kg of frozen produce on two trolleys per hour versus 250kg per hour from the other manufacturers.

Energy Efficiency

Our indemnified designs put energy efficiency at the heart of every project. We can ensure clients are not wasting energy or cash with a design which ensures maximum possible energy efficiency using inverter controlled  packs, electronic valves versus mechanical valves and utilised proportional control logic where output adapts to meet demand perfectly, operating far more efficiently.

Temperature Control

Reliability , efficiency and product integrity are the key words in the  catering and hospitality industry, we know you cannot afford wastage and need to keep your customers happy. We work to ensure your facilities adhere to HACCP and food hygiene guidelines. Everything from the layout of your facility, to the ambient temperature  of the room, to lighting and flow procedures all affect  your refrigeration equipment. Our designs will  offer you a bespoke solution which not only meets your needs now but safeguards  future growth.
