InspiraFarms Cooling in talks to acquire Celtic International

InspiraFarms Cooling, a leading provider of cooling solutions across Africa, just announced the process of acquiring Celtic Cooling’s operations in Africa.

“This will ensure the continued operations of the teams based in Ethiopia, Ghana, and Kenya, who have developed a reputation for high-quality technical skills in the cold storage industry,” Julian Mitchell, the InspiraFarms Cooling’s CEO says.

The full process is expected to be complete in the next few weeks, as of 30th November 2023.

InspiraFarms Cooling is pursuing this opportunity to help expand its presence across the African market. Integrating the Celtic companies in Ethiopia, Ghana, and Kenya into the existing infrastructure of InspiraFarms Cooling offers many advantages. Particularly building on the experience, skills, and technical proficiency of the teams that have been operating for nearly 25 years.

“With this, InspiraFarms Cooling will continue to offer high-quality, energy-efficient cooling, with integrated data to improve the consistency of cooling, by allowing its customers to remotely monitor their cold rooms.” says Julian.

The three entities will continue as they currently operate, providing maintenance services, repairs, site assessments, and supplying refrigeration spare parts with InspiraFarms Cooling, supporting customers with developing cold rooms, packhouses, and other cooling solutions. Upon completion of the legal processes of acquisition, the companies will operate under the brand – InspiraFarms Cooling.

The acquisition presents an opportunity for both companies to continue their shared vision of offering high-quality cooling solutions and services to all customers across horticulture, floriculture, animal proteins, 3PLs, and more. This will also allow more cooling systems to be deployed faster and to improve the post-harvest technology that focuses on maximizing customer returns and reducing produce loss and impact on the environment.
