The office was established in 1999. Located just south of Glasgow, the branch covers central Scotland and Northern Ireland, undertaking refrigeration and HVAC installation, service and maintenance work.
Bellshill has seen significant growth in new installations work over the past five years, while delivering ongoing plant aftercare programmes at 50 customer sites.
Customer retention levels at the branch are exceptionally high, with Star servicing 90% of existing customers for over 10 years. With the majority of customers on long-term maintenance contracts, Bellshill serves businesses of all sizes, with a significant number of blue-chip clients on the books which are part of national key account programmes.
The branch is responsible for customers across varied industry sectors, including food and drinks manufacturing, temperature-controlled storage and distribution, data centres, leisure, pharmaceuticals, petrochemical and district heating.
The branch team comprises 20 technical field engineers, plus specialist managers, supervisors, and office support staff. Our team of award-winning refrigeration engineers and the skilled apprentices and trainees who follow in their footsteps – undertaking the company’s comprehensive training and qualification programme- are highly regarded for their knowledge and experience and are ready to take on any challenge, however big or small.
The branch boasts high employee retention, with several supervisors and senior managers remaining with the company after completing engineering apprenticeships with Star more than three decades ago. Recent business growth has led to further expansion of the engineering team at Bellshill. Two new employees are currently going through Star’s fast track engineering training programme and the branch will soon take on a new apprentice.
