75 years of innovation
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, Germany, Australia and South America, True products can be found in foodservice operations all around the world.
