In 1923, in the South Island of New Zealand, George E Patton set
up a refrigeration engineering shop in Christchurch. It was a location
surrounded by inspiration, export quality Canterbury lamb, snow
capped mountains and huge potential for a refrigeration man with
vision. Business thrived and by 1930 G E Patton Ltd was producing a
range of domestic refrigerators and flip top ice cream cabinets for the
rapidly expanding local market.
As business grew Pattons innovative product development grew with it. Chest freezers,
absorption refrigerators and New Zealands first curved glass fronted delicatessen and
frozen food cabinets were all the work of G E Patton.
In the 1970s G E Patton Ltd changed its name to Patton Refrigeration, moved head
office north to Auckland and focused on developing the increasingly successful
commercial refrigeration component of their business. New ranges from Patton included
condensing units, air-cooled condensers and unit coolers.
In 2008 Patton Refrigeration became simply Patton Ltd, a truly international company
with a diverse product range, an 85 year history and an enviable reputation. With nine
New Zealand branches, eleven Australian branches and sales offices in Thailand and
India. Patton manufacturing facilities are based in New Zealand, Australia and Thailand.

MAdE TO ORdER
Sometimes standard doesnt fit all applications.
When that is the case, Patton design and manufacture
refrigeration equipment to suit individual requirements
and situations. This includes water chillers, racks,
compressor/receiver sets and milk vat units.
At Patton, providing the ultimate refrigeration solution
does not mean simply supplying refrigeration equipment.
It means working closely with clients to understand
exactly what is required, what are the ultimate goals
and which elements of a situation need to be
considered before work commences on design,
manufacture or supply.
This approach sets Patton apart and has achieved
outstanding results in major industries.
