November 9, 2007 – Refrigeration equipment manufacturer Kysor//Warren celebrates 125 years of providing refrigeration solutions to the supermarket industry on Saturday, November 17. It started in 1882 when H.J. Shannen developed and patented the two-way cycle refrigeration system, and began manufacturing meat coolers in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Being 125 years old is very unique for any industry and we are proud of this accomplishment,” says Jim Laycock, President. “This experience allows us to provide our Customers with unique customer service and special value with leading edge technology in the manufacturer of frozen, medium temp and heated display merchandisers, mechanical refrigeration systems and remote mechanical and electrical houses.”
To mark this milestone, we will celebrate at our manufacturing facilities in Columbus, Georgia. Associates and their families are invited for lunch, plant tours, watch videos of Associates and have chances to win prizes. We will also have a dunking booth to benefit the Ronald McDonald House.
The success of Kysor//Warren is its history of innovation. Entrepreneur and inventor Virgil P. Warren acquired the company in 1909 and began expanding the product lines by adapting early methods of electric refrigeration. Through acquisitions, revolutionary design of the cases, and being instrumental in designing industry standards, Kysor//Warren has remained on the leading edge of technology and expansive product offerings. Since June, 2000, Kysor//Warren has been a part of Enodis PLC, a leading food equipment solutions provider.
Kysor/Warren has been providing refrigeration solutions to the supermarket industry for more than 100 years. It is a leading manufacturer of frozen, medium temp and heated display merchandisers, mechanical refrigeration systems and remote mechanical and electrical houses. Its partners under the Enodis solutions include Kysor Panel Systems and Kysor International. Kysor//Warren works hard to find solutions for its Customers. We listen, respond…and deliver!
