Refrigerated

Alfred Industries has both the knowledge and an intense passion for innovative design and quality construction for refrigerated van bodies.  We promise you will never have to sweat with our line of refrigerated trucks, also known as “reefers”.  Reliable climate control is imperative when the quality of the freight depends on consistent temperature regulation.  All of our insulated components are foamed in a press to ensure complete coverage and uniformity. Customization for each unique application is where our know-how and engineering capabilities come into play.  We offer a wide variety of side thicknesses and flooring types, ensuring ideal temperatures and conditions for your refrigeration needs.

Our refrigerated van bodies are designed to be mounted on your choice of chassis.  These bodies are ideal for the use in delivery for any temperature-sensitive products including pharmaceuticals, produce, beverage, frozen foods, flowers, and a number of other industry specific freight. Alfred’s refrigerated vans bodies can accommodate virtually any variation of cold freight or temperature regulation.  Remember, here at Alfred, we design and build all of our bodies in our 40,000 square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing warehouse. We excel in engineering and designing your truck body to the specific demands of your hauling needs.
