Yorkshire glazing firm, ICW (UK) Ltd has won a deal to design and manufacture a series of temperature controlled shops within shops for a national retail chain.
The deal could eventually be worth 100 shops for the Wakefield business which has already made and installed three of the beer and wine units for a national grocery company.
It comes hot on the heels of another high profile win to supply sealed windows for ten breast screening units for NHS Scotland and confirms the firm’s reputation for designing and manufacturing environment control glazed units.
ICW will supply the windows to a shop fitting company commissioned to provide larger shop units.
Margaret Wood ICW (UK) Ltd founder and chairman said:
“The retail chain wanted to upgrade its instore beer and wine units to give consumers a greater choice of chilled drinks.
“We have worked closely with the shop fitters on previous projects and were first choice because of our ability to design hi-spec temperature controlled units.
“The project was originally planned before the recession but put on hold as retailers scaled back expansion.
“Now consumers are more confident and spend on food and beverage is increasing they were keen to press ahead with the investment.”
Mick Broadhead, ICW (UK) Ltd MD, said:
“Each of the units is different so demands unique design to ensure uniformity across the brand.
“We only supplied the first unit but have installed subsequent units proving we can fulfil complete contracts.
“We have proved time and again that we can deliver quality design for diverse environments to British Standards.”
