Commercial Refrigeration Expert Grand Rapids MI

Your Local Commercial Refrigeration Experts!

Weidenfeller Refrigeration is a family tradition. As a leading, family-owned and operated commercial refrigeration company, it’s important for our customers to know our story.

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 helped in the shop, handed a torch and given the opportunity to solder and sweat copper fittings. Rick is a fourth generation refrigeration technician who has also completed a search and discovery of equipment and installations as his grandfather did in the 1940s and ‘50s. Rick’s grandfather was a pioneer in ammonia refrigeration and taught his son everything he knew about the trade. 

Carrying on the family trade with the same commitment, expertise, and convictions is paramount to Weidenfeller’s successes. 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.

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 operations.

Now that you know our story, welcome to the Weidenfeller Refrigeration family!
