A Word from Our President

Founded in 1967 with humble beginnings working out of my dad’s home garage to now operating as a second-generation family-owned business, I am proud and honored to lead the next generation here at Strause Refrigeration.

Our commercial refrigeration, HVAC installation and service work is mechanical contracting and construction at its best. The ways we work with one another and with every customer is based on a strong foundation of values, including respect, transparency, and integrity.

Why Choose Strause Refrigeration?

Whether it’s a grocery store, a manufacturing facility, or a restaurant, they are all dependent to some extent upon high-functioning Commercial Refrigeration and/or HVAC equipment. No supermarket or food service operation can survive without refrigeration. And no company of any kind will last long without their HVAC system doing its job. In some cases, these systems are rarely given a second thought, right up until they stop working.

At Strause Refrigeration our mission is to continually grow long-term relationships with new and existing customers, our employees, and the broader community through professional installation and service of commercial refrigeration, heating, air conditioning and energy management system products.
