The UK District Energy Association Associate Member:

Arctic Circle Ltd

We are a privately owned British manufacturer of innovative low carbon solutions for the heat transfer market in its broadest sense, including compressors, refrigeration systems, heat recovery, chillers, thermal storage and heat pumps. We are committed to raising standards within our industry and take a long term view enabling us to make the decisions and investments necessary to keep ahead of our competition.

The company was set up in 1985 and is currently managed by a team of Directors who value the independence and long-term strategic decision making capacity that being privately owned gives them.

Our Directors believe that the company has an obligation to relate the global issues affecting us all to their own market place, and then demonstrate how, through innovation, the products produced and services provided can reduce energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. This philosophy sets a benchmark by which all future product innovation is assessed.

We have established a reputation for innovative solutions and have grown consistently to become the undisputed market leader in innovation. This has been recognised by :

  • The first ever World Bank contract for technology transfers for semi-hermetic refrigeration compressors under the Montreal protocol.
  • Appointed United Nations Industrial Development Organisation consultants for refrigeration compressors.
  • The first compressor manufacturer to obtain energy technology listing for the ECA scheme.
  • The recipients of numerous awards covering product innovation, training and development, and corporate citizenship.

We are committed to the training and development of our staff, this includes providing full four-year Engineering Apprenticeship placements in Electrical and Mechanical disciplines. Foundation Degree's are available to those who show the commitment and motivation to succeed. By investing in our staff we are also investing in the people who will have the skills and ideas to continue to develop the business in the future.
