About Us 2018-02-16T12:58:51+00:00

TransCold Services Ltd., based on Annacis Island in Delta, BC, has over 60 years experience as contractors specializing in commercial and industrial refrigeration, HVAC and electrical services. Founded in 1969 by Dave Sergius, our original focus was primarily on residential and commercial refrigeration. By expanding our repertoire to offer best-in-class commercial, industrial and marine refrigeration services, we quickly gained a positive reputation in the industry. We are proud to say that we have the best government-certified refrigeration and electrical professionals on our team. Since the company’s inception, TransCold Services has expanded from exclusively residential and commercial services to include industrial services as well. Over the years we’ve added custom manufacturing, general contracting and project management to our extensive service portfolio in the Greater Vancouver area & Fraser Valley, as well as throughout North America.

“Delivering what is promised” is more than a promise, it is a culture in which TransCold conducts all of our business.

TransCold Distribution Ltd. CEO and Founder, Mr. John Coughlan, purchased then Polar Industries in 2015. The acquisition reflects a new exciting chapter for the TransCold brand. TransCold Distribution Ltd. is the leading wholesale supplier and distributor of ice cream and frozen goods throughout Western Canada and the United States.

The new TransCold Services Ltd. began with two divisions: TransCold Refrigeration and TransCold Electric. Both work seamlessly to provide comprehensive refrigeration and electrical solutions. We are now full service contractors, specializing in refrigeration, HVAC, cold storage, electrical and mechanical solutions to customers in BC and throughout North America.

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