Second helpings for fridge firm as it supplies food exhibition

A LISBURN refrigeration firm has been chosen again as the official supplier to this year's Gulfood food and hospitality exhibition.

Lowe Refrigeration will provide refrigeration equipment for 3,500 companies at the exhibition, which runs between February 27 and March 2.

The company will be sending around 20 engineers and technicians to Dubai, along with five members of its bilingual sales team to liaise with clients.

The company's 14 containers are already en route to the Middle East. Lowe said they are expanding their rental team, which will create at least two new jobs.

The firm has offices in Lisburn, England, Scotland, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore and the USA and has been an official contractor at Gulfood for more than a decade. More than 55,000 buyers are expected to attend the Gulfood exhibition this month.

The company's rental sales manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa, Rachel Lowry said: "Lowe Refrigeration has a track record of delivering a quality service at Gulfood and other vast exhibitions. That is why we have again been entrusted with ensuring that the exhibitors have a reliable refrigeration service."

The exhibition is being held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, where more than one million square feet of exhibition space has been sold.
