About Traulsen

Traulsen has long been known as the premier name in refrigeration for the foodservice industry.

Traulsen provides professional expertise and high quality equipment for savvy food service customers who know how important temperature control is – and want peace of mind that their equipment will keep doing its job.

Our customers value high performance, reliability and longevity. They put their trust in Traulsen to deliver on all counts – and we appreciate that.


Founder Harry Traulsen began Traulsen & Company in Queens, New York, in 1938 as a producer of bakery fixtures with a small product line that included refrigerated showcases. Commercial refrigeration soon became the primary focus of the small company.

It was World War II that established Traulsen’s reputation for innovation, as the company led the way in manufacturing portable refrigerated boxes to preserve food under combat conditions where electricity was not always available.

When the company returned to the commercial refrigeration business after the war, Traulsen set down the design and manufacturing standards that we follow to this day: Build the toughest, highest quality products in the industry—no compromises; source reliable components from industry leaders built to stringent, self-imposed specifications; develop advanced refrigeration technologies; and bring customers the long-term savings and value that comes from a long, efficient product life.


Every Traulsen product is engineered, fabricated, assembled and tested at our facility in Fort Worth, Texas. When you are purchasing equipment that is meant to last a long time, you deserve to know not only what goes into it, but where it comes from. Traulsen is proud to offer products designed and built in Texas. (Source:
