Smartcool broadens distribution in southern states, initiates sales project with Blue Bell Creameries



    VANCOUVER, Dec. 13 /CNW/ - Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSXV: SSC), is pleased
to announce that the Company has signed a sales distribution agreement with
Combined Refrigeration Resources, Inc. ("CRR") based in Humble, Texas. CRR
specializes in custom equipment design, sales, marketing and maintenance in
the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration sector (HVAC &
R). Their highly trained and vastly experienced technical team provides both
on-site and technical sales support. CRR is a factory-direct distributor of
Dunham-Bush and also authorized dealers and service providers for many HVAC &
R equipment companies including Master-Bilt, Danfoss, Hartford Compressors,
Rae Corporation, and Rittal. CRR, who have a significant presence in the South
Central United States, will initially direct their efforts in Texas and
Oklahoma.
    CRR's first project has already been installed with Blue Bell Creameries,
Brenham, Texas. Blue Bell, who is currently celebrating their 100th
Anniversary, ranks as one of the top three best selling ice creams in the
United States and has over 50 production and sales locations in the
South-Eastern U.S. The first installation in the Blue Bell facility will
provide data confirming the level of savings available through the install of
Smartcool's technology. Upon successful completion it is anticipated that
Smartcool's ESM(TM) will be installed throughout the Blue Bell Creameries
network.
    "Smartcool's Energy Savings Module Technology is a perfect fit into our
existing suite of products and services," states Dan Baker of Combined
Refrigeration. "We are committed to servicing our existing client base with
the best of breed controls and energy management products within the HVAC & R
sector, the ESM(TM) surely does that. Our initial pilot project has been
installed with Blue Bell and the evaluation period is well underway, we are
confident it will provide the energy savings that have been experienced in
other Smartcool installations."
    "Combined Refrigeration has a significant presence in the Air
Conditioning and Refrigeration sector and is exactly the kind of sales and
servicing group Smartcool is looking to align ourselves with," states Andy
Stanfield, General Manager of Smartcool Systems USA. "With their experience
and strong technical staff, we feel very confident that the ESM(TM) will be
sold and supported to the highest standards and we are very excited that our
technology will be introduced to their existing client contacts."
