A European group with a global reach




Climalife in the UK are one of the leading distributors of refrigerants, glycols and compressor oils. Founded in 1998, IDS Refrigeration Ltd originated from a joint venture between Rhodia and its European distributor, the Dehon Group. It started life trading under the name ISCEON Distribution Services, which was quickly shortened to IDS.


The company was originally based at Rhodia's site at Avonmouth, near Bristol, with a filling plant and central stocking location in South Wales. A nationwide wholesale and distribution network was developed to supply a growing range of refrigerants and this has continued to expand to this day.

In April 2005 IDS Refrigeration Ltd became a wholly owned subsidiary of Dehon and has strongly reinforced its presence in the UK market. Later the same year DuPont purchased the ISCEON® 9 Series refrigerant blends business from Rhodia and as a result, IDS became the leading distributor of  the DuPontTM ISCEON® 9 Series refrigerant blends in the UK.


Climalife Apex CourtIDS now under the Climalife name moved from Avonmouth in 2020 to new offices in Bradley Stoke, Bristol and distributes a comprehensive range of refrigerants, oils and other chemical products, all backed up by a first-class team of people and an efficient logistics operation.
