Headquartered in the Netherlands, Action is a fast growing non-food retail discounter, with over 1,200 stores across the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria and Poland.

Action’s brand presents as a bright, spacious and welcoming environment for shoppers, offering a broad and surprising product range at the lowest prices.

Proud of its ethos, the company‘s store at Cloppenburg in Germany showcases the minimalist design and environmental ethics which lie at the heart of its consumer appeal. This is complemented by a comfortable in-store climate that creates the perfect ambience.

As a discount retailer, cost has been a major factor in the choice of HVAC systems for Action, who sought an HVAC supplier that could also give HVAC design and support and offer local coordination in each expansion country.

“Together with Daikin’s technical team we have optimised the design of our HVAC system, reducing investment levels and operational costs. Daikin has offered us access to the most up to date technology.”

- Michiel Coolen, Group Construction Manager ACTION

On the shop floor, Daikin’s ceiling-mounted Roundflow cassettes provide a low profile, visually unobtrusive air conditioning solution which ensures efficient air circulation and maintains a comfortable temperature all year round.

Wall-mounted indoor units linked with outdoor units on the roof provide climate control in back-office areas and the canteen. Responsive smart controls enable precision control of temperatures to meet different requirements within the building. Adding further to the comfort of shoppers is the overdoor air curtain that keeps a comfortable indoor climate when doors open.

The Modular L ventilation unit, acclaimed by Team IM Duurzaam as being "acoustically very quiet, with simple plug and play technology", provides fresh air for the store, recovering energy from the outgoing air to maximize efficiency.

Action goes greener with Daikin Refrigerant Reclaim Programme

Action intensifies its partnership with Daikin for this new ground breaking project: reclaiming refrigerant from its refurbished stores and reusing it.

By setting up this circular economy of refrigerants within our own store network we further reduce our environmental impact. Instead of producing more waste by disposing the old refrigerant and producing something new, we use what is available.”, says Michiel Coolen, Action Group Construction Manager. “In this way we create a closed circle of refrigerant use within the Action network”
