You may have heard of Tony Phoenix-Morrison, the award-winning fundraiser who has been walking and running around the UK with a Smedge refrigerator strapped to his back. The refrigerator has clocked more than 1,000 miles on the back of its host and has become famous throughout the UK thanks to numerous television appearances and news write-ups. And now it's for sale.
Scotland Food & Drink recently published an article from an experienced attorney who used the opportunity to remind business owners in the food and drink industry of their legal responsibilities in a number of areas. One of the areas addressed was that of refrigeration. Davidson Chalmers' partner Laura Tainish specifically mentioned regulators focusing on refrigeration due to the possibility of faulty equipment releasing ozone-depleting gases. Potential problems are equally applicable to all equipment, from the walk-in freezer to the refrigerated trailer.
Refrigeration industry analysts are expecting fairly strong growth across the commercial sector through 2018, according to a news item recently published by RAC Magazine's Julian Milnes. Analysts expect walk-in freezer and cold room sales to be among the hottest in developed countries, while residential refrigerators and freezers will likely enjoy the strongest growth in developing countries.

We have been mobile for years. In fact, mobility is nothing new to providers of chiller trailer hire.
