Serving the industrial refrigeration industry as both a contractor and custom package fabricator/ manufacturer




At RD&S, the quality is engineered into each project – from beginning to end. Comprised of Professional Engineers and Refrigeration Designers specializing in mechanical and electrical engineering, our Engineering Staff brings excellence to both design build projects and projects utilizing pre-designed industrial refrigeration systems. Our Engineering Team is professionally licensed in multiple states with the ability for reciprocity when the need arises.



RD&S manufactures custom UL approved electrical control panels and motor control centers for both standalone applications and as a supporting component to industrial refrigeration packages. We utilize the latest technological advances to provide our customers with the best possible solutions for their controls needs. A typical controls package consists of a PLC based system with remote monitoring with the opportunity to make adjustments to the system remotely over an ethernet connection.

Design - Build

Design / Build

RD&S has a clear competitive advantage—Our world class 32,000 sq ft facility in the Philadelphia Area allows us to prebuild skids for both specialty packages and large refrigeration projects. We have in-house booms, cranes, lifts, and lulls that allow for ease of construction right at the shop, with our Engineering Team just a few steps away at all times – this allows the entire RD&S Team to work closely throughout the entire project, from vision to design, through fabrication, to construction. The result? Efficient refrigeration systems, lower installed costs, and a far less eventful commissioning process.


Service / Parts

We have the in-house ability to provide technical services that meet the most complex needs of industrial refrigeration systems—from simple mechanical repairs, to analytical services and system commissioning. We also can supply parts and maintenance materials from any of the suppliers in the industry. RD&S is one of the largest Frick Factors in the United States and is capable of servicing your system in any capacity. Whether you want to repair the system yourself or have our team maintain your system for you, RD&S has got you covered.
