Blue Star expands its Commercial Refrigeration footprint

Air conditioning and commercial refrigeration major, Blue Star Limited, today announces the launch of a new range of commercial refrigeration products and solutions which are ideal for storing vaccines. These comprise specifically designed, temperature controlled refrigerators and transporters, which are integral for building a robust ecosystem for vaccine distribution in India.

The company has launched Ice Lined Refrigerators (+2°C to +8°C) which is ideal for vaccination programmes due to their ability to maintain a desired temperature even without power for up to as long as 48 hours, ensuring lower spoilage of vaccines while in storage through inevitable power cuts. Newly launched Vaccine Transporters (+8°C to -20°C) are perfect for transport of vaccines to remote corners of the country since they maintain desired low temperatures even while in transit by working off the battery of any four-wheel vehicle.

The Company also announces the launch of its new range of water coolers and water dispensers which are designed to help maintain hygiene. They comprise  Touchless Storage Water Coolers and  Softpush Bottled Water Dispensers.

B Thiagarajan, Managing Director, Blue Star Limited, said, “The need for commercial refrigeration in India is increasingly becoming vital across industries be it for Pharmaceutical or Healthcare, Agriculture, Hospitality, Food Processing, or Dairy, amongst others. In fact, compared to the developed countries, commercial refrigeration adoption in India is only at a sub-5% level, which translates into huge opportunities for us.

He adds, “Currently, with India’s Pharmaceutical and Healthcare sectors witnessing heightened momentum due to the roll out of the vaccination drive and enhanced thrust by the Government to build a future-ready robust healthcare ecosystem, the demand for these products and equipment is witnessing a rapid uptick. With our proven prowess in this arena, we have been successfully catering to the varied and evolving needs of cold chains across industries.”

Products and solutions across the entire cold value chain
Apart from the new launches, the Company’s existing range of commercial refrigeration products and solutions is extensive and includes deep freezers, bottle coolers, storage water coolers, bottled water dispensers, visi coolers, modular cold rooms, commercial kitchen refrigeration equipment such as reach-in coolers/freezers, under counters, saladettes, back bar chillers, blast coolers and freezers, medical refrigeration equipment such as medical freezers (upto -20°C), ultra-low temperature freezers (-86°C), pharma refrigerators (+2°C to +8°C), blood bank refrigerators, mortuary chambers, and supermarket refrigeration equipment such as multideck chillers, upright freezers, and island coolers/freezers, covering all that is required in a typical supermarket.

The Company’s refrigeration products are well known for quality, reliability and durability, and have earned the trust of millions of customers, making Blue Star one of the significant players in this industry.

Manufacturing and R&D prowess
Blue Star’s manufacturing footprint spans five state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. The Company also has one of the best AHRI-certified R&D facilities in India with the largest talent pool of engineers. This has helped the Company in incorporating cutting edge technologies in all its new product developments. The Company’s manufacturing facilities at Wada and Ahmedabad are dedicated to manufacturing its wide range of commercial refrigeration products.

New plant set-up at Wada
The Company, with a CAPEX of around Rs 130 crores, is in the process of setting up a new plant at its existing facility at Wada to expand the manufacturing capacity of its deep freezers and storage water coolers, to cater to the rising demand for commercial refrigeration products as well as leverage on the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan. With the new plant, Blue Star will be doubling its production capacity for deep freezers. This new plant, being constructed on a built-up area of around 19,300 sq m, will have a capacity to produce around 2,00,000 deep freezers and 1,00,000 storage water coolers per annum. It is in the advanced stages of completion and is likely to be commissioned towards the end of this year.
