Back in 1990, Jim VanderGiessen, Sr. and his son, Jim Jr., started Pro Refrigeration Inc. because their customers needed something that didn’t exist. So they put their heads together and found a way to design and manufacture their own equipment for niche cooling applications like craft beers, wineries and dairy farms.
Pro was started with a mission to design and produce a chiller system their customers could rely upon.
Not an easy task. But Jim Sr. brought to the table over 30 years’ experience as a leading refrigeration contractor in the Pacific Northwest. And Jim Jr. focused on welding and fabrication. Together, they spent years finding the best components, testing countless configurations, and ultimately developing what has grown to become one of the leading names in Packaged Chiller Systems in the United States.
