The refrigeration industry is driven by the replacement rates of existing equipment, by commercial food service construction, and by regulators to improve energy efficiency of the system.
High Performance Equipment
We provide high performance variable speed motors, controls, and power transmission components that maximize equipment performance and enhance operating profits by reducing energy cost.
We are an industry leader in PMAC motors, controls, and power transmission products for the refrigeration industry. We have over 75 years of expertise in providing innovations to the refrigeration industry in ECM, axial, and radial flux motor technologies, hermetic motors, VFDs, reefer generators, belts and sheaves.
The compressor is a key element in a vapor refrigeration system. It is used to pump the refrigerant from the cold side to the hot side of the system. The heat absorbed by the refrigerant in the evaporator is then removed before the refrigerant cycle can start again.Learn More

United States Industry Overview
The food service market includes restaurants, hotels, fast-food outlets, and mobile food services, as well as supermarkets, convenience stores, and gas stations. All these types of establishments demand refrigeration products and equipment for storage, transport and display.
Replacement of existing refrigeration equipment is a major market for industry operator’s due to new energy-efficient equipment.
Demand from refrigeration equipment wholesaling
Refrigeration equipment wholesalers demand commercial refrigeration equipment from this industry. Wholesalers supply restaurants, hotels, fast food outlets, supermarkets, convenience stores, gas stations, and mobile food services operators with refrigerated trucks, display cases, and storage units.
Increased revenue for the food service sector translated into higher sales for refrigeration equipment, as restaurants began to upgrade existing equipment or expand operations to increase capacity.
Demand is projected to increase through 2021.
