German cooling appliance manufacturer pulls away from Coolectric distributor

German refrigeration manufacturer Liebherr is to set up its own organisation in the UK, providing sales and servicing of its cooling and freezing products.

It means it will no longer supply importer Coolectric, part of the Waterline group, which was a solus supplier of the Liebherr refrigeration brand.

From early 2015, Liebherr-Great Britain, based at Biggleswade in Bedfordshire, will assume responsibility for the brand in the UK. The precise date of the transfer of the business is still in negotiations.

Coolectric was recovering from a fire at the beginning of the year, which destroyed its head office and warehousing.
