VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Smartcool Systems Inc. announced that it has signed a sales distribution agreement with Combined Refrigeration Resources Inc. (CRR), based in Humble, Texas. CRR specializes in custom equipment design, sales, marketing, and maintenance in the HVACR market. It is a factory-direct distributor of Dunham-Bush and also authorized dealer and service provider for other HVACR equipment companies including Master-Bilt, Danfoss, Hartford Compressors, Rae Corp., and Rittal. CRR, which has a significant presence in the south central United States, will initially direct its efforts in Texas and Oklahoma.
CRR’s first project has already been installed with Blue Bell
Creameries, Brenham, Texas. Blue Bell ranks as one of the top three best
selling ice creams in the United States and has over 50 production and sales
locations in the southeastern U.S. The first installation in the Blue Bell
facility will provide data confirming the level of savings available through
the installation of Smartcool’s Energy Savings Module (ESM)™ technology. Upon
successful completion, it is anticipated that Smartcool’s ESM will be installed
throughout the Blue Bell Creameries network.
“Smartcool’s Energy Savings Module technology is a perfect fit
into our existing suite of products and services,” stated Dan Baker of Combined
Refrigeration. “We are committed to servicing our existing client base with the
best of breed controls and energy management products within the HVACR sector.
The ESM surely does that. Our initial pilot project has been installed with
Blue Bell and the evaluation period is well underway. We are confident it will
provide the energy savings that have been experienced in other Smartcool
“Combined Refrigeration has a significant presence in the air
conditioning and refrigeration sector and is exactly the kind of sales and
servicing group Smartcool is looking to align ourselves with,” said Andy
Stanfield, general manager of Smartcool Systems USA. “With their experience and
strong technical staff, we feel very confident that the ESM will be sold and
supported to the highest standards and we are very excited that our technology
will be introduced to their existing client contacts.”
Smartcool Systems specializes in energy and cost reduction
technologies for commercial and retail businesses. The ESM is designed to
reduce the electricity consumption and maximum demand of air conditioning and
refrigeration compressors. Rather than replacing existing equipment, the ESM
works in conjunction with existing controls in order to ensure that compressors
work at maximum efficiency, while maintaining preset temperature levels and
without causing overcycling. For more information, visit www.smartcool.net.
