Interview - Marty Lauder - Prestige Modular Coolrooms
Storing food at the appropriate temperature can be a challenge, particularly during busy periods or when temporary events are happening. The solution is Prestige Modular Coolrooms and we spoke with Sales Manager Marty Lauder about this very clever innovation.
FFW: What does your company specialise in?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: The supply of modular coolrooms for long and short-term hire. We also offer freezer modules.
FFW: What sizes of businesses do you cater for?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: We cater to all businesses that require temporary cool storage, and we have the ability to grow with the client’s business.
FFW: Do you service businesses across Australia?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: Yes, we will service across Australia.
FFW: Are your coolrooms for purchase or for rent/lease?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: The coolrooms are for rent/lease purposes only.
FFW: Can clients order custom sizes or are the modules all the one size?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: The coolrooms that are modular are at a set size of 6m x 3m, but we can customise orders for long term customers who are after smaller size units.
FFW: How are modules able to be added on to one another?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: To increase the size of the coolroom, we remove the side wall on two units. The second unit is transported to site and positioned beside the original on-site coolroom. We have air and water-resistant tape that provides a seal to prevent air loss and the process takes about 20 minutes once on site.
FFW: Does this result in any loss of efficiency?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: The supply of multiple modular coolroom units does not diminish the ability of the units working at their optimum rate. All units work together to maintain the required temperature.
FFW: What is the maximum number of modules that can be joined together?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: There is no maximum number of units that can be linked together.
FFW: What are some of the stand-out features of your modular Coolrooms?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: The ability to be modular to grow with the customers’ requirements. Being 2.85m wide internally allows for movement between the eight pallets. They feature a flat checker plate floor for ease of trolley movement.
FFW: What kinds of clients are using Prestige Modular Coolrooms for their cold storage?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: Wholesale, retail, storage facilities, distribution, wineries, restaurants, caterers, venues.
FFW: Are the coolrooms suitable for outdoor applications?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: Yes, the coolrooms are suitable for outdoor applications as well as internal. All that is required is a reasonably level surface.
FFW: What is the lead time on delivery and installation?
PRESTIGE MODULAR COOLROOMS: If units are not in stock, the lead time on supply of units to site would be 4-5 weeks from ordering.
