Multistage Cooling celebrates 20 years

Multistage Cooling celebrates 20 years

After starting as a one-man industrial refrigeration contractor in 1996, Multistage Cooling (MSC) has notched up more than 500 projects and completed all within contractual limits, of which 16 are ice rinks and the seventeenth is currently under construction.

Bob Vuletic immigrated to South Africa from Austria in 1973 as a qualified mechanical engineering technologist. He obtained his qualification in the ship building industry in 1968 in Yugoslavia with registration 159 awards (credits) of the Social Republic of Yugoslavia (SRY).

His first job was with Klaus Refrigeration. “Klaus Neave was a hard master, but I learnt a great deal from him,” says Vuletic. He continues, “In 1987 I joined Bronsair and my first contract was the installation of the ice plant at the East Rand Proprietary Mine (ERPM) in Boksburg. At 6 000 tonnes of ice a day, it was then the largest ice plant in Africa. Karl Klosterman of Bronsair was an excellent mentor to me. It was at Bronsair that I gained the experience as a contract engineer on very large projects.”

"Part of the success of Multistage Cooling, can be attributed to Vuletic’s willingness to contribute towards the development of the industry."

Soon after starting Multistage Cooling (MSC) as a refrigeration contracting company in 1996, it was awarded a contract to install the first ammonia refrigeration plant for poultry distributor, F Dawood and Sons in Benoni.

MSC has a staff of 22: three in admin, six SAQCC Gas registered practitioners and the rest are pipe fitters and welders.

In looking back on the past 20 years of Multistage Cooling, Vuletic shared his views of the years ahead with Cold Link Africa. “Although strong relations with your client base will remain the back bone of the business, when it comes to public tenders, the focus is on the lowest price at the expense of quality. It is also becoming more difficult to hire good experienced staff. The pool of staff in ammonia refrigeration seems to be shrinking, but we still remain positive and excited about the years ahead.”
