Andrews Air Conditioning announce partnership with GB Rowing Team

The 2012 Olympic Games was remarkably successful for Team GB, with a haul of 65 medals marking their best performance for over a century. Not since 1908 has that total been bettered, and a significant contributory factor in Great Britain’s impressive showing was undoubtedly the achievements of our Rowing Team. The nine medals accumulated across the sport accounted for almost 14% of the overall total, underlining their importance to the future endeavours of Team GB.

In order to keep progressing, the GB Rowing Team squad will once again set up base at their annual training camp in Breisach, Germany. The region boasts the best facilities in Europe but in previous years the overbearing heat has affected the sleeping patterns and general comfort of competitors.

As one of Europe’s leading suppliers of bespoke climate control hire equipment, Andrews Air Conditioning has recently entered into a partnership with the GB Rowing Team. We are immensely proud to have the opportunity to work alongside one of the country’s foremost sporting success stories, and will ensure all participants are kept cool during a vital period of preparation.

We have provided 25 Polar Wind portable units to be stationed at the training camp which will adequately cool the squad during a spell of particularly hot weather. With the agreement in place for the next three years, the equipment will be required until the 2016 Olympic year with the Games taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

With the GB Rowing Team is seemingly flourishing across a broad range of competitions, Andrews Air Conditioning is delighted to support the group and play our part in further assisting them. The World Championships is the big target this year in Amsterdam and the Breisach camp, for the rowers, will be a critical part of that preparation.

Great Britain has topped the medal charts at world cups and World Championships and is now widely regarded as one of the sport’s strongest nations. Their sustained success and growing reputation runs parallel to the unceasing development of our own company, and we hope that together we can enjoy future triumphs in our respective fields.
