With businesses across South Africa sustaining significant financial setbacks as a result of the extended Covid-19 lockdown, returning to full operation and addressing profit margins is top of mind for many business owners. For businesses with processes that rely on refrigeration, switching to outsourced refrigeration or cooling as a service (CaaS) can be a meaningful step towards business recovery, says Cala van der Westhuizen, head of sales at EP Refrigeration, a division of Energy Partners and part of the PSG group of companies.
The nationwide lockdown has forced many businesses to re-evaluate their largest cost drivers. “For refrigeration-heavy operations, cooling is a significant cost factor that’s going to become much more difficult to bear,” Cala says. Businesses now need to put aside much more capital for unexpected additional costs than before lockdown, and switching to CaaS removes the need for capital expenditure while ensuring the lowest and most predictable operational cost for cooling possible. You only pay for the cooling you need at a guaranteed price.
There has never been a more important time to simplify operations and improve cost efficiency. EP Refrigeration offers direct support services to all businesses during lockdown and beyond.
