CRTS Ltd Celebrates 20th Year!


In October 2019, CRTS Ltd celebrated its 20th Year in  Business! It all started in 1999 when, having been employed in the refrigeration industry for many years, Tim Edwards saw a gap in the market and took the leap to set up on his own. The Company began from a small office at Tim’s home on Bodmin Moor - just Tim and his Ex-BT mobile service van!

Over the years, Tim has taken CRTS Ltd from strength to strength and through his reputation for quality service and word of mouth, Tim has organically grown his customer base, whilst also retaining many loyal customers and supporting their ever-increasing transport fleets. With this growth came the need for some extra pairs of hands! CRTS’ team of engineers and office staff has steadily increased to where we are today, with a team of 6 engineers and 3 office staff.

In 2004, the Company moved from Tim’s home to a small unit in Bodmin, then onto a larger single bay Workshop in 2010 and then again, in 2015, when we built our own purpose-built 3-bay workshop.

Our workshops are now able to accommodate our customers’ largest double deck trailers and coaches, which has proved invaluable. From the start CRTS Ltd was a sub-dealer for Carrier Transicold and awarded main-dealer  status in 2012 for the Cornwall and South Devon area.

CRTS Ltd has now truly become a family business, with Tim’s Daughter, Charlotte, in the office as General Manager, Wayne, Tim’s Brother-in-Law, having been an engineer with the company for 18 years , Tim’s nephew, Matt, an apprentice engineer and, more recently, Tim's neice Millie, joinining the office team co-ordinating our bodywork repairs.

We owe a huge thank-you to all of our loyal customers…….here’s to the next 20 years!

We'd like to extend a big thank-you to all our customers and suppliers who got involved with the day -supplying prizes for the draw, showcasing their vehicles and setting up trade stands.

The regulations make it a necessity for the contractor and owner to record specific information whenever refrigerant has to be recovered, added or removed and for  each vehicle/ trailer over 3.5 tonne gross weight to have an annual leak test.
