A brief history
A leading UK refrigerated retail display cabinet design and manufacturer
Manor Refrigerated Cabinets is a trading name of Manor Concepts. The original Manor Concepts company was formed in 1996 and has experienced significant developments over the years. We are now one of the UK’s leading suppliers of innovative solutions in refrigerated retail display cabinets and associated equipment.
Operating out of Sandy in the UK, our business has a totally integrated and flexible manufacturing plant where cabinets and components are produced to the highest standards. There are two additional storage facilities where assembly, refurbishment and assessment operations are carried out.
Naturally, market demand is rarely linear and so over the years we have established joint ventures with partner companies to enhance our manufacturing capabilities. These close and professional partnerships enable us, when required, to have our UK designed cabinets and accessories manufactured under licence elsewhere.
Research & development facility
All partner products are tested and approved utilising our own in-house controlled environment research and development laboratory. This facility is available to test and approve the full range of cabinets and accessories.
To ensure the smooth running of client projects, we provide a comprehensive project management service. This includes the overseeing of design, build and installation for both our products and refurbishment contracts with existing cabinets.
Short lead times
The lead time for products is dependent on the product type and volume required. On average, it is eight to twelve weeks, however, the flexible nature of our manufacturing plant allows for late changes to be accommodated. This same flexibility also allows for customer specific requirements to be handled competently.
Our support team and account management are all resident in the UK and based at our facility in Sandy in Bedfordshire. Contract managers and project managers are based at the same facility but are also located remotely where and when required.
Since February 2015 Manor Concepts has been wholly owned by the Italian commercial refrigeration specialist, Arneg S.p.A.
Established in 1963 in the Veneto region of Italy, Arneg operates out of 20 factories and 11 commercial offices in 25 countries around the globe. It has a turnover in excess of €500m and is an international leader in the manufacture and installation of display equipment for the retail sector.
As a result of the merger, Manor enjoys a close collaboration with its parent company, reaping the benefits of its worldwide support network of knowledge and expertise. Working together with Arneg, Manor is developing retail display cabinets and door solutions for the UK food and drink market that are right at the forefront of design and technology.
