Andrews Sykes announce three-year supplier agreement with British Rowing

It is with a great deal of pride that we can announce a new long-term association with British Rowing, having worked alongside the team in a supporting capacity since 2014.

The deal will see Andrews Air Conditioning provide temporary cooling equipment to be housed inside the various training camps where athletes prepare for international competitions.

This summer, a number of our Polar Wind units have been deployed within the team’s training base in Varese, Italy, where the women’s squad selected to represent Great Britain at the World Rowing Championships are currently training. Varese is situated in north-western Lombardy, not far from the Swiss border, where temperatures are known to regularly exceed 30°C during the summer months.

Our equipment is being used in the indoor exercise area for three weeks to ensure all rowers are kept cool during their preparation for the World Rowing Championships held in Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida this September.

Andrews’ supplier agreement with British Rowing has been extended for a three-year period and will culminate in supporting the GB Rowing Team’s preparation for the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo.

As the UK’s most prominent provider of portable climate control solutions, Andrews Air Conditioning are extremely pleased to be supplying one of the country’s most successful sports teams with equipment that will aid their training.

We wish the squad the very best of luck both with preparing for and competing in the upcoming World Rowing Championships and look forward to following their progress on the BBC once things get started.
