Penguin Refrigeration launches EU distribution subsidiary in Ireland

Europe’s leading supplier of specialist refrigeration solutions for the marine and motorhome market, Penguin Refrigeration, launches its new EU branch, based in Cork, Ireland – Penguin Refrigeration EU.


The exclusive UK supplier of Vitrifrigo, Frigoboat and Climma, Penguin Refrigeration is the industry’s leading bespoke, technical refrigeration brand for luxury yachts, boats and motorhomes. The expansion allows the company to take orders from, and supply to, any customer, partner or distributor residing in the EU, without import or export restrictions or duties.


Penguin Refrigeration EU’s new distribution centre will reduce transportation costs and allow efficient 24-hour shipments from available inventory – an impressive time-saving-solution comparative to usual three to four week timeframes from the UK, due to EU regulations. Partner and trade discounts will remain in place through the new EU distribution.


To offer further efficiency for customers, Penguin Refrigeration EU is partnering with Ireland’s leading marine equipment supplier, CH Marine, who will manage fulfilment of orders for EU customers from the new distribution facility in Cork. This collaboration also sees the introduction of Penguin Refrigeration’s product lines in three of CH Marine’s Irish stores in Cork, Skibbereen and Newtownards, as well as its online store.


Martin O’Donovan, Director of CH Marine, comments, “We’re delighted to be partnering with Penguin Refrigeration on its EU distribution. Penguin Refrigeration has an impressive reputation for supplying quality products, supported by excellent technical customer service. Our new Cork warehouse will supply products to the EU Market both in an efficient and timely manner. This is an exciting addition to our portfolio, and I look forward to developing the business to the benefit of our EU customers.”


Chris Feibusch, Marketing Director of Penguin Refrigeration EU, adds, “This is a crucial step in our company’s growth, meeting the growing demand we have across the EU market. This expansion offers readily available, custom refrigeration and air conditioning solutions for new and existing customers in the EU, providing simplified logistics for efficient next-day shipments and reduced regulations improving delivery costs.”
