Thankyou to all our Renewables Roadshow visitors...
We would like to thank everyone who visited our stand at the 2012 Renewables Roadshow events, which took place in 6 locations across the country at the end of last year.
We were delighted to get the opportunity to talk to contacts old and new about our range of products, in particular Greenway, our new renewable and biodegradable heat transfer fluid designed especially for solar thermal, heat pump and underfloor heating applications.
For those of you that missed us, it's not too late to receive an information pack on Greenway - simply call our office on 01179 802520 or email


Success for Climalife at Chillventa 2012
Climalife enjoyed a busy 3 days at 2012's Chillventa show, which took place in Nuremberg, Germany.
Visitors from across the world were in attendance to learn about all that's new in the refrigeration and air conditioning world, including a number of our UK customers.
We hope you enjoyed the show!


Climalife launches new oils range...
Climalife are pleased to announce the launch of a new range of compressor oils.
The HQ POE range of oils are synthetic and polyolester based lubricants, designed for refrigeration and air conditioning compressors that work with hydroflurocarbon cooling fluids.  The properties of HQ POE oils provide excellent protection against the deterioration of working parts, and the oils are suited for use across a range of temperatures.
Further news on this range will follow shortly - in the meantime be sure to check our website for updates.

   A double celebration!

Congratulations in order for Climalife's Mel Bridges and Peter Dinnage

Staff from our Bristol office, as well as colleagues from Climalife's office in Paris, gathered on an October evening in Bristol to mark the achievements of Mel Bridges (centre) and Peter Dinnage (second from left).
Colleagues were bidding a fond farewell to Mel, who has retired after completing a total of 33 years of employment within the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.  Mel joined IDS Refrigeration Limited in 2003, and managed the company for 7 years before handing over to new Managing Director Allan Harper (far right) in January 2011.  We are sure that all those who know Mel will join us in wishing him a long and happy retirement.
A double celebration was in order as the event also coincided with Technical Director Peter Dinnage's 25th year in service.  Colleagues were united in congratulating him on this fantastic achievement and an enjoyable evening was had by all.
