THE St Ives-based Flex-Able Group has launched a commercial refrigeration and air conditioning subsidiary.

FlexErefrigeration Ltd, which provides businesses with fridges, freezers and air conditioning units, is headed up by Colin Melhuish.

Richard Vanbergen, group managing director, said: "The business is working on a fixed price model, so customers know exactly what they are paying for.

"FlexErefrigeration costs will be fully transparent and there will be no surprises with the final invoice. The business will operate on a 24/7 basis for emergency call outs, as well as planned servicing and maintenance contracts.

"The service can also provide back-up equipment if the parts have to be sourced or the client can buy into a 'Refurb Exchange' service. Full range of new and reconditioned commercial fridges, freezers and air conditioning units will be available offering a wide range of products & services, as well as organizing one-off projects and installations.

Finally, if equipment which has come to the end of its life, it will be environmentally decommissioned ensuring nothing ends up in landfill. An important factor in our ever green world."
