United Aluminium have been successfully supplying refrigeration equipment to the rail industry since 1998, this includes the development and supply of refrigerated display cabinets and cassette chiller units to Alstom and Bombardier which have then been fitted onto WCML Pendolino class 390 / Virgin X Country and the new fleet upgrade for ECML Mark 3 and Mark 4 trains. 

Our offering into the rail industry goes beyond the supply of refrigeration equipment as we have been providing high quality fabricated component solutions to Alstom which have been used throughout the WCML Pendolino including the shop area of the kitchen car.

We have a proven track record in providing refrigeration cassettes, cabinets and equipment; these are reliable, robust and easily maintained.  Our analytical processes and expertise enable us to successfully identify operational issues and areas of improvement in existing rail refrigeration equipment produced by others.  We re-evaluated and successfully implemented a rectification program ensuring optimum and reliable performance of existing equipment where the design and manufacturing quality was not of a sufficient standard to operate successfully in the environment created in a train kitchen.

Our unrivalled consultancy expertise and innovative approach to solving problems is why we are now the refrigeration contractor and consultants of choice for much of the rail industry in the UK, providing maintenance on all the fleets they are responsible for.

We offer bespoke design and development services to provide a viable and cost effective solution for on board specialist refrigeration equipment and offer full prototyping and testing services.
