OUR HISTORY

1946

Creation of Rowland Adams Metals Ltd, Bristol

A partnership between Mr Adams and Mr Rowland, two metalworker friends back from the war. Over the years they became one of the first companies in England making cork filled coldroom panels that were sandwiched between timber frames and vapor repellent faces infilled with rope fibres, bitumen and caulk to create a seal.

Name change to Stancold Coldstore Construction

Where the name originated from is a combination of urban legend and myth. Some say, it was the idea of an installer called Stan, some say it was a “clever use” of the concept of 'Standing in the Cold'. However we got here, we are proud of our roots!
