Refrigeration and Cooling Specialist IRS Limited, save food producers thousands of pounds each year with turnkey solutions that reduce energy usage, whilst reducing their environmental impact.

Bromsgrove based company IRS Limited, are the preferred service provider of refrigeration and air conditioning solutions, to many of the largest producers of branded food. Cost savings can be as much as £60,000 a year, with reductions in maintenance costs exceeding £25,000, so it’s easy to see why IRS are the top of many food producers list, for refrigeration and cooling systems. With the latest technology and  25 years’ experience in legislation and coolant usage, IRS look to develop their strong-hold in the industry in 2015.

Managing Director at IRS, Mark Parsons, is a respected authority in the industry and explains “Our first focus when we take on a new client is to conduct a full audit of what is already in place and review process efficiency. By installing temperature and electric current monitors on the food or bakery plant, major imbalances can be identified and rectified.” He adds “We’re all about creating long term, cost saving solutions which can often save our customers tens of thousands of pounds! Our plans for growth and expansion continue in 2015, as our customer referral base is stronger than ever.”

A new efficient cooling regime with energy savings, can help resource hungry, food production facilities, dramatically reduce their carbon footprint and overall impact on the environment. In a recent case study at a well-known bakery, IRS reduced electricity consumption and on-going maintenance by £85,300. Water used within the systems can also be saved, often seeing a 25% reduction.
