The annual National ACR Awards were held in Manchester last week and we were pleased to be awarded with Highly Commended in the category Environmental Initiative for our variable capacity heat reclaim system which has been designed, engineered, developed and constructed by our manufacturing branch, CLADE.
As we approach the end of another year of growth, it’s great to know that our development isn’t going unrecognised and we were delighted to be presented with the prestigious, RAC Cooling Industry Business of the Year award for 2019. We would like to dedicate this award to the whole team at A1 Engineering and CLADE because without their dedication and commitment, this wouldn’t be possible. Well done everyone!

A1 are highly commended at the RAC Cooling Awards – September, 2014
A1 Engineering Solutions are proud to announce they were highly commended in the “Contractor of the Year” category at the recent Cooling Industry Awards. The awards ceremony, held at the London Hilton Park Lane, was attended by the RAC industry’s biggest names and the annual event recognises outstanding achievers from the cooling industry. A1 is immensely proud to have been recognised and also to have sponsored the event.
A1 Engineering is in its 29th year of trading and in the recent years has come of age, evolving from an installation supplier to the contracting industry to a direct partner to retail, with its most exciting changes having happened in the past year.
A1 has grown significantly opening two further regional offices, securing three ISO standards, partnering with an established plant manufacturer to produce its own plant, grown its electrical & mechanical division and more than doubled its turnover. A1 has always been a name synonymous with quality and reliability and will endeavour to keep this reputation whilst growing its offer.
A1 have been confirmed as a finalist in the upcoming RAC Cooling Awards – July, 2014
The newly re-branded A1 Engineering Solutions (formerly A1 Refrigeration Installation) have been selected as finalists for the Contractor of the year category. In 2013 we were awarded Highly Commended in the same category.
Contractors are at the front line of the cooling industry and the standard of our work has a major influence on the success of an installation – and therefore on its environmental impact. This category rewards the firms that provide exemplary service and outstanding performance throughout the year, and is open to all refrigeration and air conditioning contractors and installers, large or small.
The winners will be announced at the award ceremony on 24th September 2014 at the London Hilton Hotel.

HIGHLY COMMENDED – A1 REFRIGERATION INSTALLATION
Seen as epitomising the “smaller company acting big”, A1 Refrigeration was highly commended for continuing its commitment to improved standards. Judges were particularly impressed by the glowing testimonials from customers. The company has wholeheartedly embraced the natural refrigeration future, with flagship projects working with hydrocarbons for The Co-operative and CO2 for M&S. It has also engaged with the world of BIM (building information modelling) which promises to dramatically improve building services in the same way as it is doing construction. As the company says: “It now rubs shoulders with the Goliaths of refrigeration contracting in the UK and has proved it can more than hold its own.”
