‘A thriving leisure industry is key to post lockdown recovery for hundreds of Liverpool businesses’ says Everkool boss Craig Greenwood
Air-conditioning boss welcomes chancellor’s VAT cut
The founder of Liverpool-based air conditioning and ventilation company Everkool has warned that Liverpool’s bars, restaurants and hotels need to thrive so that other businesses can survive in a post Covid-19 lockdown world.
Craig whose firm Everkool supplies air-conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration products to a number of leisure services companies in the city, said:
“So many businesses in Liverpool have been affected by the closure of bars, restaurants and hotels. The Covid-19 lockdown hit suppliers like us and many others I know incredibly hard.
Liverpool heavily relies on a burgeoning leisure industry. It is critical for the city’s future economic prosperity. That’s why we need to support it. Empty bars and restaurants will have a devastating knock on effect for the economy so the chancellor’s VAT cut for the leisure industry is welcome news. It helps the sector pick itself back up, it may help keep people in jobs and it will ensure suppliers’ businesses and can carry on strong.“
Based in Bootle, the Everkool is one of the North West’s leading suppliers of air conditioning and ventilation services and enjoyed significant growth in recent years after winning a string of contracts with companies including Iliad group, Signature Living and Knowsley Council.
