Consett based Barkell, one of the UK’s leading air handling unit manufacturers, has announced the launch of its new website.

The new website has been developed to deliver a more uniform and user friendly platform for clients looking for industry insight, expertise and product.

The new site offers a wealth of advice and information online about the air handling industry and its role within specific industries, such as data centres, healthcare, pharmaceutical and education, alongside general comfort applications such as retail outlets and office developments. It also offers product range information along with insight on trends within the marketplace.

With increased specialism in these key areas, Barkell wanted to be sure that their offering was readily available and easily accessible to their client base across the UK. Whilst all production takes place on their manufacturing site in the north east, Barkell supplies air handling units to many large organisations such as hospitals, pharmaceutical laboratories, football clubs, car manufacturers and universities all across the country.

With the ever-increasing demand for instant and insightful information, especially in areas of technological development, Barkell needed a platform that could offer detailed knowledge and guidance whilst providing interesting information on the company and product specification information.

The project, which was started at the end of 2019, has been an international effort, with the team at Barkell working with sister company Airedale, their American parent company, Modine and a specialist website agency, also based in the US. The new website release comes in tandem with the release of a new website for sister company Airedale, as both move towards a more uniformed look as part of a complete HVAC solutions group.

Adam Childs, General Manager of Barkell, said: “Our new website is a great move for Barkell, not only giving us an exciting new platform to demonstrate our capabilities as an AHU manufacturer but it also reflects our expertise and insight in the HVAC marketplace.

“We work with some of the biggest business names in the UK arena who trust us time and time again to deliver high quality air management equipment for some very large and time-sensitive projects and we are keen that our online presence reflects this.

“Our new website offers not only product information, but also case studies, environmental information and a whole section dedicated to end-users to make their online journey more informative as well as easier to navigate. It is a really positive move for our business and demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement in all that we do.”
