Commercial refrigeration manufacturer Williams has launched a range of fridges and freezers developed specifically for medical, pharmaceutical and laboratory use. The Williams Medi+ range offers precise, reliable and stable temperature control and a choice of 13 models, from compact undercounter units to upright cabinets, including slimline versions. This diversity means Williams can offer products to suit applications for the storage of drugs, medicines and vaccines in a variety of sites including hospitals, laboratories, nursing and care homes, pharmacies, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries, vets and other clinical settings.

Supply to TUCO members would be through the Catering Light and Heavy Framework Agreement, via all Lot 5 suppliers with the exception of True Refrigeration.

This new Williams Medi+ range utilises proven refrigeration systems and high density, eco-friendly insulation to maintain stable storage conditions, even in high ambient temperatures.  Robust, stainless steel construction, low noise emissions, alarms for high and low temperature, internal LED lighting and securely lockable doors make them ideal for use in these specialist markets.  With the exception of the undercounter Medi+ 135, all models also feature self-closing doors.

“The Williams Medi+ products are designed to meet the exacting needs of medical and laboratory applications,” says Williams’ sales and marketing director, Malcolm Harling. “From delicate, temperature-sensitive laboratory uses to high-value pharmaceuticals, we’ve put all our expertise into developing fridges and freezers that offer the most reliable, stable and robust storage conditions.” 

Williams Medi+ products are available with a choice of options so that operators can tailor the product to their specific needs.  These include glass or solid doors and a choice of white nylon coated wire shelving as standard or optional punched stainless steel versions.  The wide choice of models offered within the Williams Medi+ range means that operators can select a fridge or freezer that best suits both the application and the available space, from compact undercounter units to slimline variants and larger capacity cabinets.

All Medi+ models feature Williams’ specially developed refrigeration controller.  This automatically monitors the fan, defrost and compressor, alerting users to potential problems and ensuring that the critical storage temperature is not compromised.

Williams has over 40 years’ experience of commercial refrigeration and all products in the Williams Medi+ range are manufactured in the UK. The company already has experience in the storage of high value pharmaceuticals, having developed a range of coldrooms specifically designed for this application. The NHS and other public sector organisations have access to the range via The ESPO Contract 98 and M98 Frameworks.

Williams has also developed specialist commercial refrigeration for a variety of industries.  Based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, Williams operates a highly successful new product development programme that has helped it become a global market leader.
