Hultsteins buy ColdConnect

Swedish company Hultsteins, which has been developed fossil-free refrigerated transport since 1962, is consolidating its position in the UK by acquiring Cold Connect.

Hultsteins’ hydraulic-powered refrigeration units have given it a unique position in a market where diesel-driven units are increasingly in question. In the UK, Cold Connect has held a similar position by offering sustainable refrigerated transport powered by electricity or hydraulics instead of diesel.

“The integration of Cold Connect with Hultsteins was a natural step as the companies have many similarities, not least when it comes to smart solutions that are sustainable for both customers and the environment,” says Stephen Maile, CEO of Cold Connect.
