Established in 2005, CoolKit is the largest refrigerated and temperature-controlled van specialist in the UK.
We occupy 70,000 square feet of manufacturing premises on a four acre site in Burnley, Lancashire, with enough capacity to work on 60 vehicles at a time. An all-new leadership team for 2023 is driving continued rapid growth and business improvement. CoolKit presently employs a team of more than 100 valued people who will convert more than 1,500 panel vans alongside building 200 insulated box vans in 2023-24, and will also sell more than 500 ready-converted vans. All our products are developed in-house and they are supported by a network of specialist mobile technicians dedicated to maximising reliability and performance.
We have a great culture, proven by having won numerous awards for manufacturing, innovation and business performance. For 2023 alone, this includes the coveted What Van? Converter of the Year Award, the Red Rose Awards Medium-sized Business of the Year and the Made in the North West Award for the Automotive, Aerospace and Rail Industries. We enjoy the shared vision of seeing our products in use on every high street, delivering the foods and medicines we all consume daily.

“CoolKit’s customer service and aftersales is excellent. They kept us up-to-date with the build progress, and even loaned us a freezer van until we could collect.”Justin HardmanBakery Manager at Rink Bakery
“Our fleet will be the most technologically advanced pharmaceutical vans on the road, having been built exclusively for AAH by CoolKit to ensure product is delivered within GDP 2013 guidelines.”Steve AndersonOperations Director at Celesio UK, AAH Pharmaceuticals’ parent company
“We have contracts with food manufacturers and suppliers and use the refrigerated vans to collect samples for microbiological, chemistry and molecular analysis. We collect from countless locations across the UK, delivering samples back to our nine food testing laboratories – and CoolKit did an excellent job. One thing they did was source a bespoke flooring for us that’s hygienic and easy to clean. Rather than having trays and boxes sliding around in the back it has given us a more stable load area.”Susan PrattALS UK Logistics Manager
