Collaboration in the air conditioning supply chain plus Daikin technology are helping Strood-based Medway Foodbank meet the growing needs of the communities it serves.
Ahead of the foodbank’s ‘head office’ overthe-road move in Medway City Estate from a 1,300sq.ft warehouse with two small offices to more than twice the space, local Daikin D1+ Premium Partner Kinlochs and Son Limited (KSL) called on its suppliers for support to provide cooling and heating in the new office accommodation.
The new warehouse covers 3,000 sq.ft and has three offices on the ground floor with an open office area above. The foodbank employs four permanent staff, and has seven temporary employees plus numerous volunteers.
Kinlochs and Son Limited (KSL) managing director Steve Kinloch says:
“We are proud to support Medway Foodbank as the service they provide to the local community in crisis is truly amazing.”
The company donated the air conditioning systems in their original offices, then provided maintenance and annual donations. The new installation comes with ongoing maintenance allowing the extended seven year warranty through KSL’s Daikin D1+ premium partner status.
Foodbank Project Manager Lorraine Schulze says: “We are incredibly grateful for the fantastic support from KSL and its contacts. Their offer in the new unit is beyond anything that we could have asked for. People sometimes ask me about corporate social responsibility (CSR) and how we see it working for us as a charity: This is it – just amazing!
