“I just thought I would share some feedback with you on this very hot day. In the past, our air conditioning has always struggled badly on these hot days.The guys out the front (with glass windows) would be sweating and they would turn the air right down. The people in the back of the office would need to bring jumpers and cardigans to work on a day like this. BUT NOW – AFTER YOUR TECHNICIAN WAS HERE LAST MONTH. It’s fantastic. We have been in this building for 10 years and the air conditioning has never worked better!! So thank you to everyone there for making that happen for us. We are all very happy and have been mostly unaware that it’s even a hot day out there. We love it!!”
Thank you Coles Refrigeration & Air Conditioning for the professional work you produced in installing the bar and kitchen at the Mark Hotel.

I have no hesitation in recommending you and Coles Refrigeration & Air Conditioning to future clients and trust we will continue to further strengthen the relationship between our companies.”

Humble Beginnings - Reliable Since
Coles Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Pty Ltd was founded by the late Sidney Harold Cole in 1939. Mr Cole was the son of a British mechanical engineer who came to Australia in the 1880’s to establish Adelaide’s first ice works and meat chilling plant.
The 1920’s saw (our founder) the late Mr Cole construct New South Wales’ first dairy cool room. This came as a response to refrigeration in Sydney becoming more popular for small shops and homes. In 1931 Mr Cole opened the Newcastle branch of ‘New Systems Telephones’ (later to become Email Limited) at 91 Hunter Street, Newcastle. Between 1933-1938 Mr Cole was appointed engineer/ manager. [Upon Mr Cole’s arrival to Newcastle & The Hunter there were less than thirty (30) commercial refrigeration installations.]
When ‘New Systems Telephones’ Newcastle branch closed, Mr Cole decided to venture into his own business (Coles Refrigeration). His first customer became BHP Shipping, a valued client continuously maintained until the closure of the Newcastle BHP Steelworks. A refrigeration cabinet factory was opened, at Broadmeadow in 1946, and it produced commercial refrigeration for sale all over Australia.
In March 1964 the business was sold to two (2) of Mr Cole’s senior staff. Always a leader in technical fields, Sid Cole used this early example of “worker participation” to good effect. The company grew and expanded. This model of worker participation has continued to this day.
Today, Coles Refrigeration & Air Conditioning is proud to continuously trade for 80+ years, still 100% locally owned and managed, and offering quality, energy-efficient, commercial and home / residential air conditioning, commercial refrigeration, commercial catering equipment / kitchens & mechanical ventilation services.
