Mitsubishi Electric Takes Pride In Park


A new development of commercial units at Pride Park, Derby, is benefiting from Mitsubishi Electric’s range of VRF heat pump air conditioning equipment, providing both heating and cool air for over 30 units to date, with a further 30 under development.

The site is managed by Kinsey Midlands, and new occupiers range from dentist’s surgeries to day nurseries, and from IT offices to windscreen repair companies – all benefiting from energy savings with Mitsubishi Electric equipment; and in turn, cost savings.

“We chose Mitsubishi Electric to provide a year round temperature control system because of the quality of the product and our confidence in it,” said John Blount, Chairman at Kinsey Midlands.

“The equipment is used for making a comfortable working environment, whilst being more energy efficient which means cost savings for the occupier.

“We recently refurbished our own offices at Racecourse Industrial Park installing Mitsubishi Electric equipment for all our air conditioning requirements – both heating and cooling,” he said.

“It’s important that we deliver 100% customer satisfaction on the units we develop and we knew from personal experience that Mitsubishi Electric would not let us down.”

One of the units on the park, Pride Park Day Nursery, benefited from a Mitsubishi Electric cassette system. The customer said: “We have lots of young children who use our facility here and as a result it can get uncomfortable, but following the installation of the new air conditioning system, we are very pleased with the improved conditions.”

Equipment installers IMS traditionally specialised in industrial gas heaters and pipework, but diversified into air conditioning to keep up with customer demand.

Dave Hithersay, IMS Business Manager explains: “When we started out, we fitted a range of air conditioning systems from various manufactures, but this proved costly with frequent customer call-backs. We moved to fitting Mitsubishi Electric exclusively five years ago, enabling us to deliver greater customer satisfaction with increased product reliability.”
