Carolina Refrigeration Joins the CoolSys Family
Surprise! Or maybe it’s not so surprising that the CoolSys family is expanding again! Please join us in welcoming the Carolina Refrigeration team to CoolSys. Carolina Refrigeration operates in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, so it is a particularly exciting and strategic acquisition that helps the CoolSys family of brands move closer to our goal of providing service to customers throughout the entire nation.
Carolina Refrigeration is headquartered in Lexington, South Carolina, with additional branch offices in Tennessee and mid-South Carolina. The company services and installs commercial HVAC and refrigeration equipment in supermarket chains, industrial processing plants, convenience stores, wholesale clubs and restaurants. They bring over 2,300 service locations and 90 skilled employees to the CoolSys team.
“Our business was founded on treating each employee and customer as if they were our only one. Our commitment to our people is the backbone of how we do business,” says Chris Hutnyak, founder of Carolina Refrigeration. Naturally, the business principles of Carolina Refrigeration align perfectly with the CoolSys family of companies!
Also in this issue of CoolTimes, you’ll have a chance to get to know Chris better. He’s the subject of our CoolPeople at CoolSys profile this month. We’re highlighting his volunteer work as the lead chaplain for the 800-person Sheriff’s Office in Richland County, South Carolina. Fans of the former TV show Live PD will recognize that office as one of the long-time featured agencies on the show.
