Somers refrigeration

Somers Refrigeration's reputation has been built on defining needs and identifying potential problems to provide lighter and durable refrigerated vehicles that really work. Ask our customers.

This is easier said than done and is only possible by understanding fully the end users operation. This needs a thorough knowledge of the product, payload, volume, temperature and delivery pattern. This is the only way to ensure that the correct refrigeration system and insulation are specified.

Since 1991 Somers Refrigeration has built up a reputation for making fridge vans that work.

All conversions utilize Somers proven vacuum assembled 75mm panels with a durable seam free glass reinforced composite inner skin to provide an easy clean surface, which are light but extremely strong and feature in many self-drive hire fleets.

A Light conversion offers high payloads and thus more products carried per litre of fuel used.
