Buying done better: Three points on temperature control in a retail environment

Posted: Aug 02, 2019

Today we’re looking at the retail sector. It’s far from a secret that HVAC systems are important in maximising sales and customer satisfaction, but how, and why? It’s big business, after all; estimates on the commercial refrigeration equipment market alone show it to be worth nearly fifty billion Dollars by 2025.

Investing is, however, worthy; a study on the value of improving air quality in offices found the annual increase in productivity to be worth at least ten times as much as the annual increase in energy and maintenance costs.

It’s been a long road to the present day for Royale! Since our inception in 1987 we’ve grown from a two-person operation to the thriving family we’re so proud of today.

Family matters.

It was 1987; a special year! Royale was born on a fateful, probably rainy day, founded by the company’s original directors Nick Sheppard and David Cullinane.
