One of the most critical components to your commercial or industrial operation is the functionality of your large scale refrigeration units.   At Cox-Powell, we aim to provide diversified services with pride and professionalism.   Commercial and Industrial refrigeration serves a large contingent of the food-service industry.  Let our CARE SERVICE® Maintenance Plan and our expert technicians cover your cold storage plants, walk in boxes, or production facilities.


Our technicians possess a unique set of skills as they escalate through our mentorship and training program.   We recruit technicians based off of their experience in handling different types of HVAC applications and service types.   Our technicians are industry certified in handling the latest refrigerant technology, thereby improving your unit’s efficiency and longevity.   When it comes to a large scale refrigeration operation, our technicians enter a diverse and robust type of application.   Food service and production operations require specific and closely monitored temperature ranges to ensure Department of Health certifications and inspection criteria.   At Cox-Powell, our technicians come fully prepared, EPA Certified® and trained to handle the less commonly used chemical compositions of brine systems and R-502 applications.   Less common refrigerants are usually foreign to smaller scale commercial HVAC contractors, let us take that worry away from you with the Cox-Powell difference!   


From smaller commercial ice machines, to large full scale ice plants, let our CARE SERVICE® Maintenance Plan secure your piece of mind when it comes to the reliability of your commercial or industrial refrigeration application.   In addition to service and maintenance, we can also procure and install a new ice machine or commercial refrigeration unit to suit your business’s needs.  With a diverse and technical staff we can even coordinate and install the plumbing to your new unit, or replace leaky or out of service piping.  Being a full service contractor, we eliminate the middle man where costs can increase and project delays become more frequent.   We can also couple technology to your unit and monitor it with Key2Act’s® Connect program which can provide vital feedback about problems with your equipment before they become major headache.  We look forward to serving your business’s needs with a full-scale estimate and plan for your units. 



After all, your refrigeration units are mission-critical systems that can quickly cost you a fortune when they go down, both in lost business and wasted perishable food. Even refrigeration equipment that’s working but with poor temperature control can cost you a bundle in spoiled food and higher energy bills, not to mention the risk of health code violations and damaging your reputation.Our knowledgeable and friendly technicians are committed to doing what it takes to keep your refrigeration equipment up and running at peak efficiency.  We act as a trusted partner that understands your business, helping you to design new systems, make smart equipment decisions and plan for future needs.

Refrigeration at the commercial and industrial level is a huge consumer of electrical energy.   At Cox-Powell, we boast our own electrical division that has the engineering and expertise to ensure that the electrical loads are managed properly.   Properly sized supporting electrical components are critical to your operation.  All too many times, corners are cut or circuits are improperly sized for the loads they are carrying.  You might be experiencing frequent circuit breaker trips, buzzing electrical panels, under performing compressor units and fans, as well as other electrical load diminishing occurrences.  Our trained personnel can utilize a thermographic survey to not only manage and identify problem areas, but also to identify poor or faulty connections.  Experience the difference with Cox-Powell’s Electrical division to meet your building and equipment needs.
