City Refrigeration in Australia

The softly softly approach was the one Lord Haughey adopted in Australia where, after 14 months of in-depth due diligence, City Refrigeration concluded a deal to take over the facilities management of 720 Coles stores, the country’s second-largest food retailer.

Coles was acquired in 2007 by Wesfarmers, which started out as a farmer’s co-operative and grew to become one of Australia’s largest-listed companies and employers.
