About CDL


As a carbon neutral company, CDL are proud to work with a wide range of environmentally responsible partners. CDL specialise in Toshiba air conditioning and Fujitsu air conditioning and also distribute CIAT and Carrier applied products, as well as a selected range of accessories from Aspen & Sauermann.

CDL are a keen supporter of F-Gas legislation and will not sell air conditioning systems or refrigeration spares to businesses that are not F-gas registered without knowledge that the installation shall be carried out by a compliant contractor.

Managing director, Darrel Birkett, says, “We believe that manufacturers, wholesalers and agents have a responsibility and duty of care to ensure that only those who are registered with Refcom, or other certification bodies, are allowed to handle, install or repair their equipment.

We also recognise the time, cost and commitment by our customers to meet current legislation on the safe handling of refrigerants and these customers respect and support our choice to back those who have taken these steps. Our training program, for which we do not charge our customers, is also our commitment back to them.


CDL offer a number of CPD courses at its North East, Scottish and North West air conditioning training centres, each fully equipped with the latest tools and Toshiba products.
