Thermo King Repair Services

Thermo King refrigeration units are a staple of the refrigeration industry, renowned worldwide for their cold storage excellence. In fact, the first refrigerated transportation unit – consisting of an engine, a compressor and a condenser – was created in 1938 for Thermo King by Frederick M. Jones to keep chicken meat fresh for travel. This invention spurred a modest yet significant revolution that changed the world. Now there was a way to keep food fresh across long distances, and Thermo King is still a premiere producer of quality cold storage products.

Since Thermo King products are so prevalent and popular in the refrigerated transport industry, it is only natural that TKX Refrigeration’s repair mechanics be an expert in this product line.

The crew at TKX are great to work with. I needed emergency repair and they were there for me in the middle of the night.
