CDK Electronics Ltd was formed in 1986 following a chance meeting with one of the major UK Refrigeration Contractors and after discussions it became clear that there was a requirement for a competitively-priced, flexible refrigeration alarm panel. Taking the opportunity, CDK Electronics Ltd was formed and within 14 weeks, using its in-house skills, a 50 channel alarm panel was designed, manufactured and fitted into the customer’s Superstore.

Over the past 25 years, steady growth has resulted in new generations of alarm panels, display case controllers and ancillary control equipment being introduced. The range has also extended to refrigerant gas detection systems, pack controllers, power monitoring, building management and a Refrigeration Management System.

In 2011 the company’s name was changed to CDK Systems Limited as this better reflects the integrated nature of the products and service supplied.
