Founded in 1990 and based in Auburn, Washington (U.S.), Pro Refrigeration produces packaged CO2 chillers for a number of industrial end users including dairy producers, craft-beverage makers and bakeries.

Last year, the manufacture commissioned its first CO2-based chiller for a dairy in Tulare, California (U.S.), demonstrating the benefits of natural refrigerants in reducing operating costs, improving operational efficiency and reducing environmental impact. In May 2022, Pro Refrigeration supplied a new CO2 chiller system to cool an Alaska-based microbrewery’s ready-to-drink cocktails.

Pro Refrigeration’s ProGreen Solutions line uses CO2, which minimizes the impact on global warming without sacrificing operating efficiency, according to the manufacturer. In addition to providing cooling, Pro’s chillers also offer heat reclamation for hot water generation.

In 2013 Pro Refrigeration opened a state-of-the-art production facility in Mocksville, North Carolina.
