Seguro Logistics not only labels themselves as controlled supply chain solutions but also as part of a community who strive to reduce carbon emissions in the most environmentally friendly manner. Powerstar were challenged to prove how their UK manufactured voltage optimisation system was capable of delivering considerable energy savings whilst at the same time causing no disruption to the smooth running of the business.
Powerstar was chosen due to proven results and reliability of the systems gained from over 10 years of successful installations.

Furthermore, Powerstar’s installation records across a number of cold storage establishments gave Seguro added piece of mind in regards to reliability of voltage optimising equipment and alas diminished their fears of disruption to normal procedure at the site.
