The annual World Refrigeration Day takes place on June 26th and we are pleased to support this initiative as a sponsor. World Refrigeration Day is an international awareness campaign to draw attention to the important role of cooling, air conditioning and heat pumps. Above all, the refrigeration industry is of great importance for various industries and life situations, so it is completely natural for us to buy chilled food in the supermarket or to keep it fresh in the refrigerator at home. With the help of the refrigeration industry, it is possible to keep food fresher for a longer time and thus make an important contribution to reducing food waste. In addition to food, the refrigeration industry is also of great importance in other sectors. For example, vaccines need to be refrigerated until they can be used by medical professionals around the world. The cold chain is essential for blood transfusions and the transportation and storage of organ donors.
As part of the Daikin Group, AHT can cover the entire spectrum of the refrigeration industry as a one-stop-shop. In addition to ventilation devices, heat pumps, ice cream chests and large refrigerated shelves, AHT can provide everything as a full-range supplier.
The motto of the World Refrigeration Day 2021 «Cooling Champions — Careers for a better world» focuses on careers in the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industries. The aim is to inspire students and young professionals in all countries and to encourage them to face the challenges of the refrigeration industry. As a state-certified training company, it is very important to us at AHT to promote young talents and to show them the opportunities for a career in the international refrigeration industry. At AHT, we see it as our task to inspire young talent for a career in the refrigeration industry. We hold regular lectures in schools, offer factory tours and taster days or work together with initiatives such as “Erlebniswelt Wirtschaft”. According to the Green Cooling Initiative (GCI) of GIZ Proklima, around 9.5 billion cooling devices will be in use worldwide by 2050. This is more than two and a half times the current amount. This and other figures show on the one hand the importance of the profession but also the job security that a job in the refrigeration industry brings with it.
