About Us 2017-12-13T15:00:36+00:00

TransCold Services Ltd. – formerly Polar Industries Ltd. – based on Annacis Island in Delta, BC, has been in business for over 60 years as a commercial and industrial refrigeration contractor. Founded in 1969 by Dave Sergius, the original focus was primarily on residential and commercial refrigeration, however by expanding their repertoire to offer best-in-class commercial, industrial and marine refrigeration services, they quickly gained a positive reputation in the industry. They are proud to say that they have the best government-certified refrigeration and electrical professionals on their team. Since the company’s inception, Polar industries strived to expand from exclusively residential and commercial services to include industrial services as well. Over the years they’ve added custom manufacturing, general contracting and project management to their extensive service portfolio in the Greater Vancouver area & Fraser Valley, as well as throughout North America.

In 2015, Polar Industries was purchased by TransCold Distribution Ltd. President and CEO Mr. John Coughlan. TransCold Distribution Ltd. is the leading wholesale supplier and distributor of ice cream and frozen goods throughout Western Canada and the United States.

Polar Industries announced effective August 1, 2016 that it will be changing its name to TransCold Services Ltd. We felt the name change reflected the new ownership and brought Polar business into a new exciting chapter under the TransCold brand. TransCold Services Ltd. is made up of two divisions: TransCold Refrigeration and TransCold Electric. Each division focuses on their respective industries but work seamlessly to provide comprehensive refrigeration and electrical solutions to customers in BC and throughout North America.

Our CEO and President goes on to say that “TransCold Services Ltd. builds on the legacy of Polar Industries as trusted refrigeration contractor with an enhanced focus on service excellence, workmanship and providing the best refrigeration solutions to its customers.”
