Londis store puts doors on chillers with Delta Refrigeration and cuts energy bills


Delta Refrigeration, a specialist in energy-saving display cabinets and retro-fit doors, has helped a Londis retailer make savings of hundreds of pounds on his monthly energy bills.

Delta installed retro-fitted double glazed hinged chiller doors for Barrie Seymour, of Londis in Liversedge in West Yorkshire, in January 2015. It also re-commissioned cabinets and supplied and fitted canopy and vertical LED for the retailer.

The results were reported to be remarkable, with Seymour’s bills dropping from £1,600 to £1,099 per month after the installation.

Simon Robinson, managing director, Delta Refrigeration, said: “I’m really pleased that we were able to help Barry cut his energy bills.

“In our opinion, there is no one single solution for every customer, so we make sure that we spend time with retailers like Barry to help them choose the very best door system to suit their individual needs.”

Seymour said: “The whole experience was really great, with 36 doors and LED fitted by two lads over two days during trading hours.

“The cabinets achieve a much better product temperature and all of my customers are very happy with them. All my staff feel that the store has a more comfortable environment.

“I was also impressed that the fitters acted upon my feedback. I expressed that I get a lot of theft from the fresh meat cabinet and it would be good if an alarm could be fitted to these section doors.

“Within a week or two of the installation, the Delta technical department had devised a wireless solution for me – great service,” he adds.

“I would recommend Delta to other retailers without any shadow of doubt – their retro-fit doors are an obvious solution. I’m now chilling the product and not the store!”
