A short presentation of Moderne Kjøling's history in English.

Founded in 1946
The company Moderne Kjøling was founded in 1946 by Sigurd Akre-Aas. Sigurd had been into refrigeration since the beginning of the twenties. In the fifties the company started import and sale of L'Unite Hermetique compressors and other refrigeration components. The company acted both as installer and wholesaler until the beginning of the sixties. From that time the company has consentrated on wholesale of refrigeration components to installers in Norway.

Magne Akre-Aas
Magne Akre-Aas took over after Sigurd. He was in the business for about 45 years. He developed the company from a small installation company to what it is today, the largest privately owned wholesaler of refrigeration components in Norway.
