Star Refrigeration are looking for refrigeration, design and site engineers to join their team for a busy 2014

Star is on the lookout for experienced refrigeration field and design engineers - are you the missing piece?

We could use another 10 to 15 refrigeration maintenance, commissioning and design engineers in the next 5 months.

The refrigeration job openings arrive in sync with the company’s growth on the operations and aftercare business division over the last year, which provides an indication on a larger trend for 2014. “We could use another 10 to 15 people in the next 5 months," said John Fraser, MD of Operations at Star Refrigeration.

The strategy centres on the opportunity to provide high-performance custom-built maintenance programs that are proven to increase plant reliability, efficiency, and therefore reduce life cycle operating costs directly affecting business profitability.

With the green legislative agenda and continuing rising energy costs driving the refrigeration and heating customer’s strategy, reducing energy consumption has a financial incentive, since in refrigeration-dependent business, energy is a major proportion of the system running costs. The ongoing maintenance and the operating energy cost of the equipment throughout its life cycle is about 85% of the total life cycle costs.

The industrial refrigeration contractor has largely weathered the recession due to its permanent commitment to sustainable growth, and will continue to evaluate trends affecting the future of all company stakeholders.

John Fraser said: “We are very much looking forward to new talented engineers becoming a valuable addition to our refrigeration maintenance team.”
