As we acknowledge this achievement, we are reminded that our fortune today links us to how it began, the hard work and dedication of a working family which cares. In 1923, Al Gartner realized the need for refrigeration services in Duluth, Minnesota. Following his unfortunate work-related passing, his wife and business partner Evelyn Gartner proved her remarkable character as a pioneering business owner and mother in keeping their company moving forward with help of family. She would tell you that our best product is our service. Today our goal remains the same, that the statement “Service is our Business, Solutions our Specialty” is added to all our fleet service vans as our way of keeping what began with Evelyn’s vision for a proper response to our customer’s needs.
