Andrews Sykes Group invest in a new major depot in Milan

Following a substantial property investment by the Andrews Sykes Group, our Italian subsidiary Nolo Climat has moved into a new depot located in the suburbs of Milan. The move will enable the business to continue its remarkable growth since first opening in Italy just seven years ago.

The new facility sits on a huge 4,000m2 site and is located very close to our previous depot in the town of Parabiago. The warehouse and workshops can now easily accommodate the largest of our chiller range along with the small portable units.

This new depot has been fully refurbished and customised to perfectly suit our business, allowing easy access and an excellent environment for our staff to service and test our equipment before going on hire. The IT systems provides extra capacity to increase communication speed for both data and voice, facilitating desk-to-desk communication with all Andrews Sykes depots.

Our new offices are very spacious and include a fully equipped training room. Staff welfare areas are well-appointed and provide employees with a much-improved working environment, with plenty of room to accommodate more growth.

To further support this development, a significant investment has been committed to our hire fleet and sees us add additional modern units including 750kW chillers and 500kW boilers. Throughout the year we have increased our staffing levels, creating new employment opportunities which we expect to continue into next year and beyond.

Speaking shortly after the new depot was officially opened, Alessandro Sisti, General Director for Italy, said: “This new depot offers us a fantastic opportunity to guarantee our new and existing customers an advanced level of service and we are confident that this strategic decision will strengthen our position within the market and allow us to reduce response times in situations where immediate action is essential.”
