Testimonials


Please see below what our customers have to say about Dawsongroup Temperature Control Solutions.

  • National Composites Centre

    ‘’Dawson’s was the chosen supplier due to offering freezers with 100% back-up with auto switch over in the event of any fault occurring.  This provided the peace of mind required ensuring that as far as reasonably practicable, the contents would be protected from loss, with the additional support of 24/7, 365 days a year emergency breakdown cover. The service from initial enquiry, off- loading, installation and commissioning was first class.‘’

  • QK Cold Stores

    ‘Why did you choose Dawsons?’

    ‘We’ve got a good relationship and that’s part of the deal. I think that’s the most important bit about it all, we have got a good relationship with Chris to be fair and that’s vital. To be fair your kit’s never let us down. We’ve probably got 6 of your units on site and we’ve never really had an issue with them and your servicing is good. So there’s no real issues’

  • Suma Foods

    ‘Why did you choose Dawsons?’

    ‘It was we had all Dawson units and they’d done really well, they’d lasted way longer than we expected. They just didn’t have the new cladded roof so we got in touch with Dawsons because we wanted something similar’

  • Aquascot

    ‘Why did you choose Dawsons?’

    ‘Because we’ve got a good relationship with yourselves and we’ve obviously got 5 other units between freezer units, blast and tempering unit. These are performing well and whenever we do have issues you guys are up and rectify those swiftly as well’

  • Lloyds Pharmacy

    ‘Why did you choose Dawsons?’

    ‘It’s because of the product. Because we’re in Pharmceutical we have to be very very careful about our product and we have had other companies come forward with similar equipment, or professed to have similar equipment. One turned up with a wooden lined trailer. I said it’s got to be cleanable. Pharmaceuticals have to have a cleanable surface. Yours does the job, it turns up, it sits there, it gets on with it, there’s no fuss, no drama and that’s what you want at the end of the day. We can put our name to something that gets delivered and sorted out so no no it’s all fine.’

  • NHS Wales

    ‘Why did you choose Dawsons?’

    ‘I’ve used them previously. I came from Private industry after 28 years into the NHS for Service Improvement. We rented 2 Dawson Units for a previous organisation through a guy called Gary Smith. So while I was in the NHS I just thought this unit was needed rapidly to store medicines for intensive care for COVID patients. So that’s why I remembered Gary. I phoned up Dawsons, Gary wasn’t there, I think he’s moved on within Dawsons, so I dealt with Martin Bowman.  He was extremely helpful but also it was the Dawson reputation in the past and we had the same level of service from Martin so that’s what made it for us’.’

  • Aquascot

    ‘Why did you choose Dawsons?’

Then the flexibility and cost of renting these units rather than, we looked at getting something bespoke built and fabricated into the building, and it was going to be too much investment for what we needed. So more on the relationship side, but also on the cost side as well .”
