Longo's is one of Ontario's most reputable family-owned grocers. They pride themselves in their offering of choice meats, mouth-watering cheeses, fresh produce and high-quality dairy. 

To keep their selection fresh, Longo's relies on top-quality refrigeration units. And the cost to operate those units is costly.

When Longo's needed to renovate their store, they turned to Kalder to find ways to reduce their refrigeration costs. Kalder helped replace the store’s 95 existing racks, cases and condensers with high-efficiency models. 

The refrigeration controls were also changed and upgraded to a Micro Thermo control system, including new evaporator coils.

Kalder now monitors all refrigeration units in the store, ensuring they run properly and efficiently. Their products are just as fresh, but their refrigeration costs are now over $18,000 less than before.
