Every Year Over $5 Billion in Washington Produce Relies On Quality Refrigeration

From local fields and orchards to the processing and storage that keeps them fresh, to the domestic and global marketplace and onto our table.

Central Washington Refrigeration plays a vital role in preserving the quality of our food and the economic impact of our production.

Your Partner in Innovative Engineering

We specialize in large scale, cold atmospheric storage for some of the nation’s biggest food providers. 

Trusted for over 25 years to deliver high performance systems and service that is great for the bottom line and safe for our environment, workers and community.

We Specialize in Ammonia Systems. 

Ammonia is:
Environmentally Friendly

Ammonia doesn’t deplete ozone and has zero Global Warming Potential. It’s biodegradable and lighter than air so it dissipates quickly into the atmosphere

Most Efficient

Compared to other refrigerants, ammonia is thermodynamically superior and up to 10% more efficient, requiring less electricity and lower costs

Most Economical

Ammonia systems cost 10-20% less to install and maintain because they require lighter gauge piping that isn’t susceptible to rust. Ammonia costs 25X less than R-22
