About ColdPro LTD.

ColdPro holds an Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) license, which puts the company in direct competition with Biffa PLC (BIFF.L) a £1.6 billion company and Sims Metal a £4 billion company (SGM.AX), as the only other public licensed waste treatment companies in the UK waste sector.

Following the closing of the acquisition, United General Ltd. and GESI will coordinate a strategic investment in ColdPro, which will be used to support the hiring of additional staff to keep up with growing demand and for the expansion its equipment and overall operations.

The Company operates across the breadth of the waste management value chain, including the collection, treatment, processing and re-sale of waste and recyclable materials, and the sale of recovered commodities, such as whole refrigerators and metals in the UK. ColdPro provides recycling services to sub-licensed recycling firms servicing the entire refrigeration industry.

By law in the UK all refrigerators must be recycled by a AATF Licensed company and cannot be disposed of through scrapping or landfilling refrigeration equipment. ColdPro is one of only three firms licensed for this activity in the entire UK and is one of only a small number of such companies globally licensed to process, refurbish and resell refrigerators legally.

ColdPro's customer base for these services includes local recycling and resale firms throughout the UK and entire EU regions, who's services are used by large corporates, small and medium sized enterprises, and purchasers of end product commodities.
