Celebration time for JD Cooling, based on the North Lynn Industrial Estate.

North Lynn-based JD Cooling  Systems has been named contractor of the year at a national industry awards ceremony.

The firm, in Lubeck Road, took home the prize at the RAC   Cooling Industry Awards in London last week, seeing off competition from a wide range of companies across the air conditioning and refrigeration sector.

Led by John Dye, JD Cooling added an industrial cooling division three years ago.

Awards judges were impressed by its drive to improve what it offers customers and its workforce.

“Judges voted the winner as JD Cooling for its pursuit of these two fundamental goals while growing significantly in the industrial sector and its forward-looking attitude when it comes to natural refrigerants.”

Apprentice Charlie Roper also won bronze in the student  of the year category on the night.
