R&D plays an important and integral role within A1, our in-house design teams are continuously seeking out new products and innovations that can be incorporated into cost effective and environmentally friendly solutions that we can offer to our customers. By monitoring and reviewing each and every new legislative challenge our industry faces, our R&D team is well placed to understand the impact on its customers and is therefore able to give the best and most up to date advice.

Along with supply chain partners, A1 is currently developing low cost natural refrigeration solutions using Hydrocarbon technology for glycol chilling.  In particular, A1 has recognised the need for low cost solutions which meet the CSR and Environmental criterion as specified by our customers for their convenience estates. This is a key focus area for our R&D team where costs for new solutions remain stubbornly high.

We make it our aim to understand our customers needs fully. By doing so, our R&D team can deliver solutions that make a difference to our customers and, most importantly, the environment.
