U.K.-based Star Refrigeration Ltd and Controlled Environments Construction (CEC), Tustin, Calif., has announced the signing of a joint venture forming Controlled Azane Refrigeration, Inc.

The agreement was signed on Jan. 25, 2018.

The agreement incorporates Star’s U.S.-based Azane Inc,, which makes low-charge ammonia chillers and freezers. Azane installed one of its chillers at a Campbell Soup plant in Napoleon, Ohio.

Rick Loesel, president and CEO of the new company, also based in Tustin, said the mission of the venture is to be “the leading provider of low-charge ammonia refrigeration systems in North America."

Added Loesel: "This is an emerging market driven by improved risk management solutions, environmentally superior systems, more cost-efficient offerings, reduced regulatory compliances, and greater flexibility and even portability opportunities.”

Star is based in Glasgow, Scotland and is the largest independent refrigeration engineering company in the U.K.

CEC has for the past four years worked with low-charge ammonia refrigeration installations.

This is an emerging market driven by improved risk management solutions, environmentally superior systems, more cost-efficient offerings, reduced regulatory compliances, and greater flexibility and even portability opportunities.”
