Drinks & Beverage Industry

Specialist process cooling, commercial chillers, dehumidification, industrial heating, and temperature control solutions for the UK drinks and beverage industry.

Here at Newsome, we provide professional process cooling, industrial heating, boilers, dehumidifiers, and temperature control solutions for the UK drinks and beverage industry. We understand the criticality of delivering precise humidity and temperature control to your processing operations and commercial buildings and as such, can tailor personalised heating, cooling or drying solutions to suit your exact needs, be that for a single process chiller, an ambient cooler, or a full turnkey heating, process cooling and drying solution. We provide our products and integrated temperature control solutions on a hire and rental basis as well as specialising in commercial equipment sales and pride ourselves on delivering the best sales, support, and product prices to our manufacturing clients available anywhere in the UK.


The Newsome team has a thorough understanding of the challenges of every aspect of the beverage industry. Our experience ranges from soft drinks to the brewing and distillation of alcoholic beverages. We specialise in temperature control solutions for all beverage applications, including cooling and temperature control for jacketed vessels, brewing, distilling, and cooling products, prior to bottling.

We can help with all sub-sectors of the drinks industry including soft drinks manufacture, beer and cider brewing, distilleries, and wineries.

All our temperature control solutions begin with a clear understanding of your specific process and temperature needs through a detailed site consultation. This means we can design an individual solution for you, one that helps you benefit from optimised production and minimal ongoing costs. We can handle the whole project for you, from concept to commissioning, and then continue to support you with technical advice and ongoing maintenance.

Over the last 40+ years, Newsome has worked to support a wide range of customers in the beverage and drinks production sectors. We’ve worked alongside some large multinational drinks manufacturers, as well as many independent smaller producers. Our hire and sales team are on hand to consult with you, then design, project manage, and install all cooling, heating, or drying systems. The Newsome service team can give you complete maintenance and breakdown cover to support our own equipment installations as well as those installed by other manufacturers. We also offer contingency plans for all your cooling and heating equipment.

Recent projects completed for clients in the drinks and beverage sector include a project to replace an existing chiller. Here, a leading manufacturer of soft drinks contacted Newsome with a view to replacing an aged unreliable 300kW chiller. During on-site discussions, the Newsome team established the chiller was operating at a set point of 12°C and, as such, Newsome not only had the opportunity to replace an old inefficient chiller with a new energy-efficient unit but could also consider the inclusion of a free cooling coil to increase the new chiller’s life expectancy and reduce site running costs. The Newsome team completed a running cost evaluation of the running cost benefits of the free cooling addition to the circuit and, with a payback in less than 18 months, the client elected to proceed with the installation of both the new chiller and free cooling coil.

Formed in 1973 by George Newsome, the company now provides consultancy, equipment, and maintenance services to many manufacturing and processing clients based in the UK. Our areas of expertise cover every aspect of commercial air conditioning, the supply of heaters, boilers, and dehumidifiers alongside process chillers optimised for critical cooling applications. So, if you are looking to hire a commercial heater or an industrial chiller, or to purchase an evaporative cooler, you are in the right place.

We have become experts in exploring new technologies, bringing these to market and developing the free cooling concept to help our manufacturing clients reduce their processing costs and reduce as much as possible their carbon emissions associated with temperature control in the production of various beverage types.

Our clients include many well-known manufacturing companies across a broad spectrum of industries including companies such as A-Safe, Meadowhall, BASF, Nestle, McVities, and Greencore in addition to many SMEs located nationwide.  Our technical sales, service, and hire teams are located close to the main motorway networks so we can deliver a fast response to your individual cooling, heating, dehumidification, or air con needs right across the UK thanks to our network of nationwide support partners.  All this is available at very short notice when required.
