In 1977 the first pre-built, truly personal computer hit the marketplace – The Apple II.
Fast forward 41 years and the modern version is completely unrecognisable in performance, but the visual lineage is clear to see.
Both the refrigeration market and the ever-developing technology have followed a similar path with highly advanced control systems and improved materials - but they are still recognisable as fridges.
Like the Apple II, Lowe Rental opened its doors to the market in 1977 and as the years have fallen off the calendar, Lowe have remained a stable partner for retailers requiring refrigeration. Keeping pace with innovation in technology, product design and energy efficiencies from the world’s best manufacturers has been key to Lowe's success.
While keeping pace with technology, Lowe have also kept a close eye on how the needs of retailers has evolved throughout the years.
Like the automotive market, the furniture market and even the housing market, there has been a shift towards renting refrigeration over a set number of years instead of outright purchase.
And this gradual shift in the market has led to Lowe's latest innovation - Long-Term Rental.
Since 1977 Lowe have developed as a rental specialist and Long-Term Rental is the next evolution in this continuous development.
Throughout Lowe’s history, the team have lived by same three core values; Listen, Empower and Accomplish.
Listen - All market demands change, the refrigeration market is no different. Lowe place great emphasis on listening to customers and manufacturers, responding to changing needs and creating new, innovative solutions.
Over the years, Lowe have built up a strong and extremely effective supply network, harnessing the ever-changing technologies of the world’s best and most innovative refrigeration manufacturers. This ensures that when a customer communicates their requirements, Lowe can listen and respond with the best suited solution.
Truly understanding the pressures a retail client faces only comes from truly listening. When you pair this supply network with the expertise of the Lowe retail team, retailers have a service that moves beyond supplier status - Lowe are an extension to retailers' store operations.

Using a large network of logistical, installation and servicing professionals, Lowe put the solutions in place on time and to spec.
With experience, experts, solutions, and the means to deliver, Lowe listen, empower and accomplish.
