Toshiba’s R32 Customer Roadshows Tours UK and Ireland


Toshiba hit the road recently for a series of customer events across the UK and Ireland to launch the company’s move to R32 refrigerant for split and multi-split air conditioning systems. The well-attended events attracted several hundred customers from all corners of the country and Ireland.

Coinciding with the World Cup, the roadshow had a football theme, with events staged at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge in London, Villa Park, Aston Villa’s ground in Birmingham, Old Trafford, home of Manchester United, Ashton Gate, home of Bristol City, and Croke Park in Dublin, home of the Gaelic Athletic Association.

Toshiba distributor Cool Designs Limited also held two events, in Glasgow and Newcastle, where the roadshow culminated, supported by the Toshiba team.

David Dunn, managing director of sales for Toshiba Air Conditioning in the UK, told attendees: “Having looked in detail at the current options, we believe R32 is a good option as the industry makes the transition away from higher Global Warming Potential (GWP) R410A refrigerant. R32 is less expensive and better for the environment than higher GWP options.”

He added: “Our priority is to ensure the highest standards of safety for all Toshiba installations, and to this end we will support customers through this transition to ensure it is done as safely and cost effectively as possible.”
