Temperature Control Equipment

Temperature Control Equipment for Ministry of Defence & Commercial Industries


Our customer is a specialist military grade and commercial refrigeration / air cooling systems manufacturer that works closely with the British Ministry of Defence, as well as various commercial customers.

Prior to CEL's change of ownership in 2012, we lost their work due to an inability to meet exacting quality and delivery requirements.
