A passion for Cold
Quality since 1945
True’s story began in 1945 when Robert (Bob) J. Trulaske returned from WW II. One night while out a bar, Bob had the idea of using electric-powered refrigeration for commercial use. With the help of some family members, the first-ever commercial refrigeration units were born, right in the Trulaske backyard. Today, that same innovation and passion is carried out by Bob’s son, who is the current CEO of True Manufacturing.
From these humble beginnings, we’ve come a long way. True now supply refrigeration equipment to established and emerging chains across the globe.
With offices and facilities in the UK, Switzerland, Australia and South America, True products can be found in foodservice operations all around the world.
Staying on top
We are leaders in our industry thanks to a business strategy focused on innovation and capital investment in updated facilities and state of the art technologies.
Our products are manufactured using the highest quality materials and the best components, to create commercial refrigeration products of enduring value. We manufacture most parts in-house to ensure quality, and those we have to buy in are purchased from world-class suppliers enabling us to create the most durable and energy efficient refrigeration systems.
Through extensive development and testing, True is balancing hydrocarbon refrigeration systems with the latest in energy efficient components and our own patented technologies, to produce highly efficient and environmentally friendly commercial refrigeration equipment.
Our imperative remains, that any product bearing the True name must be able to maintain consistent, accurate and safe storage temperatures, even in the most demanding of foodservice environments.
At True, we believe operators should view the standard warranty offered by a manufacturer as an indicator of their own confidence in the long term viability of their product.
That’s why All True products supplied into mainland Europe and UK are covered, as standard, by a comprehensive 5 Years Parts & Labour Warranty, more than double the industry standard for commercial refrigeration.
We maintain a network of service partners in all regions where our equipment is supplied, allowing us to provide a faster, more local service, and minimise downtime for our clients. These partners are trained and assisted by our in-house team of Technical Service experts, in many cases holding an inventory of common spare parts in order to provide a first time fix. Where replacement OEM parts are required, we hold a large parts inventory and work with local wholesalers who ship to site on an expedited service.
