Frostaire, Sri Lanka’s premier cooling service provider, has become the first company to
localise the manufacture of cold rooms and freezer trucks for the local market.
Yet another milestone for the home-grown brand, this newest addition to Frostaire’s growing portfolio will serve to greatly revolutionise industries benefiting from a locally
