Arizona's Leading Refrigeration Contractor

Industrial Refrigeration & Boiler Co. has been keeping the Greater Phoenix area cool since 1963. As a fully integrated design build, installation refrigeration, boiler, and process piping contractor, the company provides complete system engineering, installation, retrofitting, and continuing maintenance and service to meet customers' needs. To date we have designed, built, and maintained more ammonia refrigeration systems in the valley than any other refrigeration contractor.

Quality Systems from the Ground Up

Industrial Refrigeration & Boiler Company was founded in 1963 by R. D. Christopher in a small garage with a few resources and little in the way of equipment. However, his company soon developed a reputation for the dependable servicing and installation of refrigeration systems. E. R. Heckman joined the firm as a stockholder after the company's incorporation in 1967. Following incorporation, the business rapidly expanded into a full service and construction operation with a steadily increasing repeat customer base. This customer base is primarily comprised of heavy commercial and industrial accounts who demand prompt and competent repair service, as well as installations.

Excellence by Design

In 1982, the founders sold the corporation and retired from participation in the firm. James Gerdes, P.E. became the managing owner of Industrial Refrigeration and Boiler Company. Under his leadership, the organization places a heavy emphasis on true design installation construction by developing an experienced staff of engineers, which include professional engineering registration. Today, our management's commitment to serve the continuing needs of our valued customers is stronger than ever. As a result, we have added to our trained staff of service and construction personnel, by means of a comprehensive training program. Our training program includes college level studies in conjunction with supervised field training. This effort allows us to assure our customers that we will provide them with the finest available systems and service, which are truly state of the art.

Performance-Based Systems

Through our distinguished history, our engineering staff has received constant feedback from both the construction and service departments, which has yielded ongoing system design refinements to optimize systems' performance and reliability. This process has produced an outstanding record of successful system designs and installations, which we proudly point to as evidence of our design installation capabilities.
