Commercial Refrigeration Expert Grand Rapids MI

Your Local Commercial Refrigeration Experts!

Weidenfeller Refrigeration is a family tradition.

Rick Weidenfeller, owner of Weidenfeller Refrigeration, used to ride along with his father on service calls and accompany him to the shop on Saturdays. Rick has learned everything he knows from his father. At just 12 years-old, Rick started to help out in the shop. He was handed a torch and given the opportunity to solder and sweat copper fittings.

Rick is a 4th generation refrigeration technician. Just recently, he completed a search and discovery of equipment and installations his grandfather did in the 1940s and ’50s. Rick’s grandfather was a pioneer in ammonia refrigeration and taught his son, Rick’s father, everything he knew about the trade. 

Rick has done an excellent job of carrying on the family trade. He has the same commitment, expertise, and convictions that both his father and grandfather had.

Prior to taking over the family business, Rick worked for a company that handled the installation of commercial and industrial blow pipe for local factories, manufacturing plants, and machine shops. He’s also worked in the concrete construction industry. To say that Rick knows his stuff when it comes to the trades would be an understatement!

As his father’s business continued to expand, the need for informed, committed, and proficient technicians increased. This is what ultimately lead Rick back to the family business!

Weidenfeller Refrigeration continues to grow rapidly. When Rick isn’t on a service call or doing an installation, he’s at the shop refurbishing equipment. He completes continuing education on commercial refrigeration to remain sharp and knowledgeable about the business! Just like Rick following in his father’s footsteps, Rick’s children are following in his. His family is actively involved in the day-to-day operation of Weidenfeller Refrigeration.

Weidenfeller Refrigeration is a family-owned and operated business. Not only are they a family, but their customers are too!

Trust Weidenfeller Refrigeration for all your commercial refrigeration needs!
