Cold Technology, located in Blackwood, New Jersey, provides turn-key supermarket design, development, implementation, and ongoing operational support for forward thinking independent retailers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.
Formed in the late 1970s, primarily as a service organization, our founding philosophy was that stores should be designed as efficiently as possible, and then operated within that design at all times. This philosophy has been proven to provide the most reliable trouble-free operation, the longest equipment life, and the lowest operating and maintenance costs.
Today, those founding principles continue to represent the cornerstone of Cold Technology's success and are key to achieving our clients objectives such as merchandising flexibility, increased shopper satisfaction, low energy costs, increased food safety, and minimized carbon footprint while improving reliability to the regional power grid.
In the early 1980s, as the age of electronics began to proliferate into the supermarket refrigeration industry, Cold Technology became involved with many of the early refrigeration monitoring and control systems. Today, through our strategic partnership with Emerson Climate Technologies, we are able to deliver state of the art building intelligence systems that deliver our clients the information they need in real time to operate their businesses profitably.
During the mid 1980s, as the company continued to grow, Cold Technology acquired the Kysor Warren equipment line and began offering refrigeration equipment and installation services. Today, the strategic alliances we have in place with the top refrigeration, HVAC, lighting, power distribution, and technology providers in the world, such as Aaon, Munters, Amerlux, and Eaton position us to design and implement state of the art, dynamic, smart grid connected, intelligent facilities which represent the overall lowest cost of ownership to our clients.
In the past, our designs have been featured in Progressive Grocer, Store Equipment and Design and Supermarket Business. Today, our personnel are FMI certified and we offer the best integrated store design department in the country.
