FOGEL has been manufacturing commercial refrigerators for the Point of Purchase in Latin America with more than 40 years of experience. With two plants operating in Guatemala and Colombia, FOGEL supplies fridges to customers in 50 countries with a comprehensive product range, employing professional logistics, marketing and service support throughout the markets in which it operates.

The combined capacity of the two factories is 144,000 coolers per year, having a total manufacturing space of 52,000 m2 and 1,100+ employees.

FOGEL understands that its customers are constantly demanding better value, moving towards lower energy consumption coolers and greener equipment, as well as exploring innovative new concepts for marketing their products.

In 2009, after months of development Fogel released its first hydrocarbon fridge, model HC-12, which became the first glass door cold merchandiser of its kind in the world to have obtained U.L. safety certification. As of 2012, FOGEL has developed 10+ models using R 290 hydrocarbon refrigerant gas, including subzero FROSTER® units for beer, and more models are on the way.

For its newest hydrocarbon fridges, Fogel employs a “Deck” type system to make service safe and easy. These coolers feature an all-in-one integrated refrigeration system known as the MODULAR DECK, which contains all of the condensing unit and evaporator components in one single module. In less than 2 minutes, the entire refrigeration deck can be replaced at the point of sale with no need to remove the cooler.

The compact deck module is intended to be transported to service centers where only qualified hydrocarbon specialists are to make any necessary repairs, eliminating the need of transporting hydrocarbon tanks from one location to another. In terms of safety, the DECK system is the ideal solution for hydrocarbon coolers.
