With ever-increasing levels of competition and ever-tighter margins, the manufacturing, production and processing industries are tough enough without the downtime and serious financial impacts caused by temperature control problems. And the clock is ticking. Every stalled production line, every wasted product, every minute lost, increases your costs and cuts your profits. Andrews Air Conditioning Hire has huge experience in keeping raw materials, products, people and essential processes cool. We ensure factory workers remain productive in summertime through spot cooling on the production line, deliver large-scale process cooling on manufacturing sites, and maintain the ideal environment for storage and warehousing.

In these times of lean manufacturing, just-in-time delivery and stringent quality control standards, even the smallest disruption to your production process can have huge implications. At Andrews Sykes we understand the needs of Process Managers and have the UK’s widest range of specialist cooling, ventilation and dehumidification rental equipment. Our huge hire fleet is strategically located at branches throughout the UK ready for immediate delivery. So if you need to improve the working environment for your vital staff, augment a critical process with large volumes of cooled air or supplement your installed systems with temporary back up during times of repair, upgrade or replacement, we are here to help. Our portable air conditioners, heavy duty ventilation fans, refrigerant and desiccant dehumidifiers and mobile industrial chillers are specially designed to be energy efficient and environmentally responsible. So if you think you may encounter production problems due to high temperatures, let us manufacture a solution for you.

Maintaining the quality and consistency of raw materials is a major headache for any manufacturer. Input materials, whether natural or intermediate components, can be sensitive to variations in temperature and humidity. Unexpected variations in such raw materials can influence reaction times, processing consistency and final product quality. During times of varying ambient conditions the Andrews Sykes range of temporary air conditioners, air handlers and dehumidifiers is ideal for maintaining consistent storage conditions. In addition to manufacturing inputs, stocks of intermediate or finished products may also degrade if kept in inappropriate environmental conditions. Degradation leads to quality control rejection, higher wastage rates and missed production targets. Using our extensive rental expertise, we have helped improve the efficiency of clients as diverse as metal processors, chocolate manufacturers and electronics assemblers. So don’t allow unexpected environmental conditions to cost you time, money and frustration. Stay cool and take control of the temperature of your storage and warehousing facilities with a little help from Andrews Air Conditioning Hire.
