The first official World Refrigeration Day (WRD) has been and gone on June 26, 2019 and what a celebration it was!
The first of its kind, WRD is an international awareness campaign to raise the profile of the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat-pump sector and focuses attention on the significant role that the industry and its technology play in modern life and society.
Non-for-profit company, World Refrigeration Day summed up the soul of the day well, as “(WRD) draws attention to wonderful engineering and science that is all around us every day. Refrigeration is at the very heart of modern life. It enables people to live, travel and work comfortably. It saves lives. It enables people to achieve.”
Actrol, Metalflex and Reece Hvac stores across Australia and New Zealand couldn’t wait to celebrate the amazing work our customers do every day. Often considered an invisible industry, working behind the scenes, we relished the opportunity to bring our customers into the spot light and thank them for making the world a safer and cooler place to live.
We hosted a range of events and activities throughout our network – from hand delivered flowers to administration staff, branch carnivals for customers families to site visits and free haircuts in store– not to mention an array of food trucks, coffee carts and sweet treats for all involved! Anything we could do to acknowledge the industry and say thank you!
