As a key part of the supply chain, JD Cooling Group has made the decision to focus on four essential sectors during this time:

  • Food; storage, processing and distribution
  • Pharmaceutical and cleanrooms
  • Utilities
  • Server and date centres

The safety and wellbeing of employees, clients and the wider community is paramount and as such JD Cooling has made the decision to service critical sectors only. Those that keep food on the shelves, manufacture medical equipment, conduct medical research, ensure energy and water supply, and allow businesses to function remotely.

"We have so much respect and praise for those that continue to help keep our nation fed, country running, and especially those directly tackling Covid-19. From manufacturing medical supplies to developing both technical and medical solutions. Our role at this time is to ensure that all those sectors can do their jobs seamlessly and that we continue to provide operational-critical support 24/7. Thank you to everyone, including our own team, for their commitment and hard work during this difficult time," said John Dye, JD Cooling Group Chairman.

In a statement by the Board, JD Cooling confirmed they will prioritise work that is deemed essential at this time within the sectors mentioned above:

  • Servicing to refrigeration equipment
  • Servicing to business-critical items
  • Maintenance to critical refrigeration systems and plant
  • Maintenance to business-critical rooms
  • Installation of critical refrigeration equipment
  • Installation of business-critical items
  • Critical cleaning works

To help reduce the spread of Covid-19 and in accordance with Government, WHO and PHE guidance, we will not expose our team, clients or wider community to unnecessary risk or harm during this period, through non-essential work within sectors not deemed key during this period. We hope you appreciate our position and support our decision with this.
