Customers and market
Commercial refrigeration, industrial refrigeration, and comfort cooling (HVAC) are Beijer Ref’s main sales markets. As an example of our place in the market, an end users requirement for refrigeration in their restaurant or grocery store, or air conditioning in their home would go through an installer. This installer would be our customer, purchasing their cooling equipment and ancillaries from Beijer Ref.
With logistics centres at the heart of every market, Beijer Ref distributes products mainly through its own branch network of approximately 425 branches. In addition to this, Beijer Ref owns five refrigerant filling stations.
