05 Apr our background
Craig Glen and Daniel Cooper are business partners. They are the owners of their new commercial refrigeration and air conditioning solutions business. And they are family.
Having built up substantial experience and expertise in the sector, Craig and Daniel’s business now wants to help commercial, leisure and hospitality businesses maintain high quality food production, minimise food wastage and maximise the lifetime value of their refrigeration equipment.
The UK’s leisure and hospitality sector continues to grow, and with this comes increasing pressure on commercial refrigeration and air conditioning equipment to deliver. Hospitality businesses need effective and efficient refrigeration equipment, maintained effectively to minimise downtime and save money whilst complying with relevant UK / EU legislation.
As the owners of Glasgow based GC Thermal Solutions Ltd, Craig and Daniel want to ensure the organisation provides the best service for their clients.
“We offer a full range of commercial refrigeration and air conditioning services including: installation, servicing, maintenance and emergency repairs. We offer maintenance packages, leasing plans, a 4 hour response time and 24/7 emergency cover as well as preventative maintenance and sub-contracting services.”
With over 20 years’ experience within the sector, the team have worked with McDonald’s, Holiday Inn Express, Nando’s and Marks & Spencer’s – so Craig and Daniel really understand the importance of keeping downtime low and reducing the risk of equipment failure.
It takes a leap of faith to venture out on your own. But luckily for Craig and Daniel the brothers have a very supportive family behind them (helping with websites and business plans!) and both love what they do. They’ve built on strong foundations to lead up to this point as well:
Daniel is a fully trained, time served Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineer, working previously as a railway engineer with a strong emphasis on health and safety, and as a restaurant Manager . He likes a round of golf on the beautiful Scottish courses when time allows (which it doesn’t often between work and a young family).
Amongst other achievements, Craig has accomplished:
- Winner of the entrepreneurial award for the Who’s Who of Young Directors (aged under 35).
- National Supply Chain Manager managing 200+ McDonalds restaurants across Scotland, Northern Ireland and England.
- Supply chain advisor for the London Olympic Games.
- Project Lead for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games covering supply chain and logistics.
