In the wake of the successful partnership for its Parabiago store, Coop Lombardia has chosen Epta for its store in the centre of Busto Arsizio (northern Italy) which has recently been opened. Quality, sustainability and service are the three key words of this newly-conceived supermarket, the perfect example of the urban model Coop Lombardia is adopting.
The superstore has embraced green solutions designed to drastically reduce environmental impact. It boasts around 2,000 m2 of vertical greenery, has a solar powered system, LED lighting with dimmers, and an Epta transcritical CO2 cooling system, teamed with the very latest refrigerated cabinets.
To follow the responsible approach adopted by the brand, Epta proposed closed cabinets from the Costan GRANFIT family: GranVista vertical cabinets, and semi-vertical Aeria Next cabinets with sliding doors for fresh produce, as well as GranBering negative units. All the systems showcase the wide range of products on offer, enhancing visibility with entirely glazed doors, combined with the higher performance standards confirmed by Eurovent certification.
The store was conceived with the aim of also meeting the needs of people working in the city centre in search of solutions for a quick and healthy meal to enjoy during their lunch breaks. The deli, cold cut & cheese and butcher’s area are therefore of prime importance. For these departments, Epta opted for self-service and assisted service solutions, Rossini Evolution Costan and Twin and Bistrot Eurocryor, choosing a special Dynamic System version. In guaranteeing the very utmost freshness, Dynamic System offers exclusive technology, thanks to which meat can be preserved in cabinets for several days without needing to be put away in cold rooms at night. At the same time it ensures its organoleptic product qualities remain intact. This offers consumers advantages where quality is concerned, whilst ensuring businesses do not need to empty cabinets each night, reducing operational costs.
The very best display solutions without compromising on aesthetics: every element has been studied down to the finest detail. Costan and Eurocryor cabinets are made unique by the customised front panels available in wood with marble inserts that blend in with the look of the store, giving it the appearance of a boutique.
Epta’s turnkey range is rounded off by the Misa positive and negative temperature cold rooms equipped with the Epta Food Defence system. This prevents, counteracts and eliminates many bacterial species, including the most well-known, dangerous kinds. It thus affords total, permanent protection for the entire lifecycle of the cold room.
Lastly, with a commitment which goes beyond food shopping and confirming the pivotal role of sustainability, Coop Lombardia has activated the EptaService Radar remote surveillance service. This 24/7 service ensures prompt, effective intervention when needed and prevents malfunctions, offering optimised energy management of the whole system.
