LONDON, 18 June, 2019 – Toshiba Carrier UK Ltd (TCUK) achieved double success in the ACR News Awards 2019, winning Website of the Year for Toshiba’s online installer training programme and coveted Chiller of the Year Award for Carrier’s AquaForce Vision Chiller. TCUK is a joint venture between Toshiba Carrier Corporation and Carrier in the United Kingdom, and is part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
The awards were presented by celebrity compere Marcus Brigstocke at a gala awards ceremony held at the Tower Hotel in London to an audience of several hundred leading lights from the industry.
In one of the most hotly contested categories, Carrier’s AquaForce Vision 30KAV chiller prevailed to be crowned Chiller of the Year, the second major award for the innovative technology following a similar achievement in the Cooling Industry Awards.
A statement by ACR News revealed that the independent judging panel commended Carrier “for the many benefits delivered by the AquaForce chiller, which include low energy consumption, high efficiencies, low noise levels, fast payback, reliability, wide operating range and a compact design which packs a lot of cooling into a small footprint.”
Toshiba’s pioneering online training programme for installers and service companies also drew praise from the judges. A statement from ACR News read, “The website fought off tough competition, winning the accolade because of the way the website provides free access to online technical courses which augment classroom sessions and, through individual training accounts, keeps a log of successfully completed courses for each user.”
This latest achievement follows on the heels of Toshiba’s Smart Cassette winning the Air Conditioning Product of the Year in the National ACR Awards in January.
David Dunn, TCUK’s managing director for sales, said, “It goes without saying that we are delighted to have received this independent industry recognition for Carrier’s outstanding 30KAV chiller and Toshiba’s pioneering training portal. These latest accolades cap a remarkable run of success for TCUK, which, following independent assessments, confirm that we have a leading chiller, VRF system, cassette and, now, training portal. No other company can claim or deliver such an unrivalled line-up of leading technology, and from a single source backed by our famed customer service, technical support and training.”
