BARCELONA, Spain — Portacool LLC, a Texas-based manufacturer of portable evaporative coolers, announced it is addressing the rise in European demand for its products through a new warehouse facility in Barcelona, Spain. Portacool said its business in Europe has increased by 12 percent since 2010, and the company sees significant growth potential with the new warehouse.

Portacool said the warehouse in Spain will enable more rapid deployment of its products across western and eastern Europe. These portable evaporative cooling solutions are aimed at meeting the cooling needs of commercial construction sites, manufacturing facilities, hotels, restaurants, and military facilities.

“While summers in Europe can be shorter and more temperate than in other markets such as the U.S. or Asia, the ability to provide a cooler environment means that work can continue on infrastructure, real estate, military, and other key projects as the temperature climbs. The European warehouse gives Portacool the ability to store and ship our portable evaporative coolers efficiently and affordably to meet the rising demand for our products across Europe,” said Maurice van der Kooij, Portacool regional sales manager - Europe.
