“This step has optimally positioned Lumikko in the Russian market as a supplier of refrigeration systems for the carrying trade,” says Jouni Saarnia, Lumikko Director of Purchasing and Production. In the future, R-Service will be assuming responsibility for sales, service and maintenance when it comes to Lumikko’s customised, turnkey refrigeration systems. The system supplier is training R-Service employees, so that they can provide advice and answer any and all technical questions. R-Service’s cutting-edge facilities conveniently situated near the motorway to Moscow in particular represent a considerable benefit.
“Thanks to the exceptional transport link, our service team can get to the customer’s location in no time at all should any questions arise – and provide reliable expert advice,” explains R-Service Director General Anton Petushko. The company also has more than 15 years of expertise in truck and trailer cooling, as demonstrated by their ability to handle Lumikko systems, which have been reliably operating in Saint Petersburg for several years.
Helmut Meyer, Director of the Transport Sales division at BITZER, is confident that the demand for refrigeration technology will continue to increase in the rapidly growing Russian market – and thus the demand for Lumikko’s turnkey solutions: “The Russian market is developing at a fast pace and we’re sure to see considerable growth there in the years to come. Whether on the go or stationary, quality and freshness are indispensable throughout the cooling chain. For instance, refrigerated storage of food while it’s transported from the producer to the consumer is of growing importance.”
