TRUE Refrigeration- St. Louis & Brugman Team

A short & sweet visit but a plant tour beyond words….

Brugman had the honor of having yet another tour of the TRUE Refrigeration plant last week in St. Louis, USA.

Although Brugman’s Team had a day there filled with knowledge and jaw dropping things to see, the TRUE  factory spans out more than 3 Million Square Feet!!

Seeing as every item at the TRUE factory is designed and made right there on site- everything right down to the shelf clips for each and every TRUE Refrigeration Unit.

Craftsmanship at its very best!

Brugman Team members only got to see it with their own eyes and no pictures were allowed.

John Trudeau, Representative of TRUE and CEO of Trudeau Food Service was Brugman Teams’ host to this amazing trip along with also spoiling them to a St. Louis Cardinals Baseball game.

Awesome seats, fantastic game but most of all- perfect company.

A Sincere “Thank you” to John Trudeau & TRUE Refrigeration. Our 2 “first timers” Melanie Carle & Ken Stratton at Brugman had a blast. Marco Brugman of Brugman Food Equipment- he came along for a “refresher.” Ok- and all the fun with this awesome crew!

 TRUE- They really do keep it cooler!

With that said, BLACK COOLER UNITS are an absolute stunning look to have in your LIQUOR STORE, BEER & WINE STORE or even BUTCHER SHOPS & DELIS.

Believe it or not, your are merchandizing your “goods” in such a way that is proven in a survey we did at Brugman Food Equipment recently.

Out of 10 customers we asked, ALL 10 liked the look of the black door cooler units (compared to white or stainless) along with felt that the look of them was more upscale, clean and even one customer mentioned they felt that they would more likely to pay more being in the surroundings of more modern looking stores like the one below!

Hmmm, something you may want to think about?
