MarcUs Prins – Sales Engineer

I was born in South Africa, I migrated to Australia on a Student Visa, studying Refrigeration and Air conditioning. In my time in the Australian refrigeration industry I have enjoyed a range of different roles giving me a unique perspective. As a contractor, I undertook small repairs for domestic clients and oversaw major overhauls in the middle of the night for customers like Woolworths. As a Condensing Unit Manufacturer I found a new respect for the level of workmanship required to make the perfect product. As the Manufacturing Manager, I learned to manage time, people and products to get not only the best result, but the most efficient. All of these experiences give me a good understanding of the pressure placed on our customers and the importance of getting things right and getting them quickly – every time. My goal at Koldpak is to build a network of people who can rely on me for technical support and trust me to reach their needs and requirements.
