The CoolSys Family Expands Further
Welcome Eastern & Richmond Refrigeration
This month, we’re shining a light on the latest companies to join the CoolSys family of brands. From the snowy, rolling hills of the northeast to the endless shores of Virginia and the Carolinas’ beaches, CoolSys is expanding our footprint across the nation!
CoolSys is thrilled to announce the addition Eastern Refrigeration and Richmond Refrigeration Service. The inclusion of these two highly rated companies to the CoolSys brand helps us get closer to our goal of becoming a nationwide HVAC-R provider.
Eastern Refrigeration was founded in 1975 by Pierre “Pete” Belisle. The company has continually expanded over the past four decades to serve markets in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Eastern brings a comprehensive set of skills to the table with emphasis on supermarket specialization — carbon dioxide and glycol systems, energy management systems and, of course, a wealth of traditional HVAC ability. It’s not a one-way street though. Stan Shumbo, vice president of Eastern Refrigeration, commented, “The employee-focused culture of CoolSys is a great fit for the Eastern team, and we look forward to providing our customers with expanded solutions to help them manage their businesses even better.” We couldn’t agree more.
“We know some of the folks at CoolSys and some of their recent acquisitions, and are very excited to join their growing team,” says John Lollar, president of Richmond Refrigeration Service. Established in 1954, Richmond Refrigeration Service has an excellent reputation and long history of impeccable service to clients in the supermarket, convenience store, restaurant and distribution center markets. Their full-service team provides plumbers, electricians, foodservice techs, HVAC-R techs and maintenance personnel to the state of Virginia, as well as parts of Maryland, North Carolina and West Virginia.
Join us in giving a CoolSys family welcome to our newest members, Eastern Refrigeration and Richmond Refrigeration Service. We look forward to collaborating on projects with them in the future.
