A Word from the President - Don Leach, Sr.
Welcome to our website! It is truly our privilege to serve you. This is something we have been doing for our customers for over 50 years.
Each of our associates here at Advance Refrigeration Co. tries to put our company philosophy into effect every single day; and that is, "We will NOT BE OUTSOLD, OUTPERFORMED, or OUTSERVICED". We want you to know this so you can be assured we will do everything possible in helping you to meet all of your appliance, carpet, and service needs.
Thanks for checking us out on our website. We hope to hear from you soon.
Don Leach, Sr.
Advance Refrigeration was founded in 1960 in the back of a Chicago laundromat. The orders were taken on the pay phone in the back of the store. Tremendous growth during the next ten years required us to move to larger quarters.
We started mainly as an appliance repair company. As our service department grew, we began to develop relationships with appliance manufacturers.
In 1967 our continued growth led to a new three story building. Once we were settled in, we established our parts department. At this point our service department had grown to 20 technicians and our delivery trucks were on the road daily.
In 1987 Advance Refrigeration moved to Bensenville, our current headquarters. Appliance sales continued to climb, as did our service and parts support.
Today Advance Refrigeration is the only major appliance distributor in the Chicagoland area whose customers benefit from our own appliance warehouse and in-house service and parts department.
