The Minus Forty Advantage: Smarter Investment, Better Sales

What’s the Minus Forty advantage? Our culture. We have more than 25 years of manufacturing low temperature cabinets for the food industry and innovating in the category. We started by manufacturing exclusively for the ice cream industry, a sector that demands outstanding performance and reliability and must meet exacting standards.  If the equipment fails there’s a substantial cost impact from spoilage, something we would never want our customers to experience. Minus Forty’s ability to meet the challenges of the commercial refrigeration industry set our own bar high from the very beginnings of our company and continues to today.

Modern design and finish

Our display merchandisers are not simply designed to keep products cold but also designed to help you sell. With a wide variety of models, single and double doors, countertop, undercounter and specialty models to choose from, we almost always have something to fit the bill.

Attention to details means our units look sharp and contemporary in any retail setting and enhance the shopping experience. Brightly lit and sleek interiors create the perfect vehicle to showcase your frozen or refrigerated products and drive sales.

Focus on innovation 

Always aiming to be a leader and not a follower, Minus Forty strives to be proactive and innovative in developing new products and features. This is evidenced by how quickly we developed the first NAMA-certified fully integrated Smartlock system. In addition, we have converted our upright models to use an eco-friendly, natural refrigerant in conjunction with meeting or exceeding DOE 2017 energy efficiency requirements. Converting to a natural refrigerant is not only good for the environment it also improves operating efficiencies and cost savings for our customers and puts them ahead of the 2020 EPA conversion requirement. In our production facility we are constantly investing in the newest manufacturing technologies and equipment and automating processes to ensure we remain a leader with state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities and resulting product quality.

Customer care that’s second to none

We always strive to meet the needs of our customers and offer flexibility to work around our customers’ needs. We focus on solving our customers’ special requirements, whether that’s developing a customized shelf or rack, or customizing POP materials. Minus Forty specializes in customized graphics that can add branding and greater visual appeal to cabinets. We also provide the solutions you need when you need them and can develop a custom delivery program including maintaining finished stock and the ability to ship within 24 hours of receipt of orders when necessary.

Warranties and service guarantees

Minus Forty supports its product with a friendly and courteous customer support team who have comprehensive troubleshooting knowledge to deliver quick resolutions and solutions to any issue that may arise with our commercial coolers and freezers. We also have a nation-wide network of preferred service technicians available to serve our customers.

All products carry one-year parts and labor coverage and four years additional coverage on compressor parts. We also offer extended warranty options tailored to your specific needs.

Reliable products and responsive service lead to a smarter investment and ultimately better sales. That’s the Minus Forty advantage.
