Clivet Aircon's sales surge despite economic downturn

Building services firm Clivet Aircon is experiencing a surge in sales, despite the downturn in the UK’s economic climate.
The Portsmouth-based firm has seen its contract maintenance business more than double in the past 12 months, whilst demand for its Versatemp refurbishment and test regime programmes is at 'an all-time high'.

Clivet Aircon said previously, when equipment was reaching the end of its life, its owners installed completely new systems to comply with regulations such as CFC and HFC phase-out and F-Gas, but a change in approach by owners is being witnessed by the firm.

Operations director Chris Trotman said 'Older systems and units can be completely refurbished economically to comply with incoming legislation and as premises managers, and accountants, start to see the benefits of this approach, so our business is growing.”

He said: “We are experiencing a definite increase in demand for the servicing and refurbishment of Versatemp and other manufacturers’ units in order to extend operational life.

'Service Level Agreements are very much in demand as they are recognised as being a highly cost-effective way of utilising budgets. 'To meet not only this part of our business, but also our factory refurbishment work, we have had to recruit additional engineers and procurement staff to support sub-contractors.”
