Hot and Cool Innovation at Industry Breakfast

At their 7 June customer breakfast, Metraclark, and Emerson addressed the latest trends in refrigeration, homing in on the rise of technology and holistic integrated solutions. 


In conjunction with the much-anticipated FRIGAIR 2018 exhibition, refrigeration and air-conditioning wholesaler Metraclark hosted a well-attended industry breakfast on Thursday, 7 June 2018 at the Midrand Conference Centre.

Held in partnership with automation solutions expert company Emerson Climate Technologies, the breakfast focused on helping customers address the world’s most critical needs when it comes to refrigeration, and how technology and energy efficiency can assist in the process.


Metraclark boasts exclusive distribution rights to Emerson products, including Copeland, Alco, and Dixell, as well as Carrier residential air-conditioning systems for Southern Africa. During the breakfast, Metraclark highlighted its partnership with Emerson, and showcased Dixell’s latest product offering. 


Daniel de Beer, Emerson regional manager, explained how Emerson concentrates on the most complex and important challenges facing the world and how they play a role in the various sectors, ranging from industrial and commercial to retail and residential.


De Beer mentioned how the use of technology in the industry is increasing and ultimately changing the way in which business is done and how we live our lives. De Beer also highlighted how refrigeration regulations are putting immense pressure on business around the world. He added that in order to make the profit, fresh products are key. The overarching solutions to achieving this include technology, regulation, as well as opportunities to create fresh approaches.


In closing, De Beer mentioned how global technological megatrends are shaping the sector — these include energy scarcity, environmental responsibility, as well as smart systems and connectivity.
