BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Portacool, LLC, the Texas-based global leader in evaporative cooling solutions, is addressing the rise in European demand for its products through a new 3050m2 warehouse facility in Barcelona, opening this month. The trend of hotter summer temperatures across the European continent, coupled with the need for cooler environments for both commercial and leisure pursuits, have seen Portacool’s business in Europe increase by 12% since 2010, and the company sees significant growth potential as a result of the new warehousing facility in Barcelona.
The Portacool warehouse in Spain enables more rapid deployment of products that reduce temperatures by up to 17 degrees Celsius in areas where traditional air conditioning is impractical or cost prohibitive. These cooling solutions are aimed at meeting the cooling needs of commercial construction sites, manufacturing facilities, hotels, restaurants, and military facilities across western and eastern Europe. The new facility in Spain provides a strategic link between Portacool’s manufacturing capabilities in the United States and customer demand, providing rapid deployment of cooling solutions to customers across Europe.
“While summers in Europe can be shorter and more temperate than in other markets such as the U.S. or Asia, the ability to provide a cooler environment means that work can continue on infrastructure, real estate, military, and other key projects as the temperature climbs. The European warehouse gives Portacool the ability to store and ship our portable evaporative coolers efficiently and affordably to meet the rising demand for our products across Europe,” said Maurice van der Kooij, Portacool Regional Sales Manager - Europe.
