About Us

The Beginning

Lowe’s story began in 1977 in Northern Ireland

A family-run business, Lowe started out renting fridges to international businesses for exhibitions and events across mainland Europe.

Over the years the Lowe Team made a name for themselves for the high-quality service honed within those exhibition halls. It’s a legacy that continues to this day.
