Water Coolers Direct has agreed a contract with the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games to provide mains-fed water coolers to Olympic administrative offices and transport offices.
Winix Samsung coolers and Zip hyrdrotaps have been stationed at Churchill Place in Canary Wharf and the transport office at the Olympic Delivery Authority. They remain in place until 2013, to cover the build-up, the event itself and the closing of the London 2010 Olympic Games.
Managing director of Water Coolers Direct, Fred Cairns-Palmer, said: "To be seen to supply major organisations such as this has an enormous value to a medium-sized company that started in a loft conversion six years ago."
The family business has 20 staff, with more than 11,000 of its coolers in use across the country. The Olympic arrangement follows a recently secured three-year contract to supply all of the corporate offices and some of Barclays’ flagship branches up and down the country.
