Brussels, Belgium, Mar 15. 2018 – Transportation Solution businesses Thermo King and Frigoblock of Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, will welcome visitors at the booth 3C100 of the CV Show in Birmingham, United Kingdom and showcase sustainable transport refrigeration systems including their zero-emission, all electric and hybrid solutions.

“This year’s line-up of zero-emission all electric and hybrid transport refrigeration systems is the embodiment of our guiding principles of environmental, business and social sustainability,” said Pauli Johannesen, vice president and general manager of Thermo King’s EMEA Truck, Trailer and Bus business. “For many decades Thermo King and Frigoblock solutions have ensured the sustainability of our customers operations whether in truck, trailer or home delivery operations. This year, both brands celebrate their 80th and 40th anniversaries respectively exemplifying our long term commitment to listening to our customers and their needs.”

The 2018 CV Show stand of Thermo King and Frigoblock will feature the new SLXi Hybrid trailer refrigeration units.
