The team from JD Cooling Systems picking up their prestigious award as ACR Contractor of the Year.

Firm JD Cooling Systems has kicked off the year successfully by winning its second top industry award in the space of a few months.

The firm was crowned ACR Contractor of the Year at last month’s National ACR and Heat Pump Awards.

The scoop follows hot on the heels of the company winning RAC Contractor of the Year at the RAC Cooling Industry Awards in September.

Managing director John Dye, who set up the company in 2000, said: “It has taken a long time to reach this stage and we have not lost sight that success is a journey, not a destination.

“I am proud JD Cooling Systems has been recognised not only once, but twice as the best refrigeration and air conditioning contractor in the UK.

“This is down to the hard work and dedication of our close team who have all individually contributed in making us who we are today.”

Judges praised the firm for its expansion from local business to a national operation over the course of a few years and for its focus on people – its employees and customers.

The company, which has its head office in Lubeck Road on the North Lynn Industrial Estate, supplies cooling systems to the food and pharmaceutical industries.

The company employs 90 people across four regional offices and has a turnover in excess of £20m.
