Excellence Industries Revives Commercial Refrigeration Assets with New Refurbishing Program

June 24, 2013 Tampa, Florida

Excellence Industries, a leader in commercial refrigeration equipment, now offers yet another sustainable service for food and foodservice brands, refurbishing.

Fashioned after the Excellence Environmental Company (EECO) recycling program, the refurbishing program is an extremely cost-efficient and time-efficient process. Customers’ distributors simply fill out a refurbishing services request form and packing list. The assets are then shipped to one of two refurbishing centers in Reno, NV or Tampa, FL. (If necessary, Excellence can coordinate the pick-up/drop-off via their internal logistics network).

Upon arrival to the refurbishing center, each unit receives a barcode with a unique serial number and is scanned into Excellence’s internal database. Next, the unit is tested for functionality and evaluated for curb appeal. If a unit does not pass, photos and refrigeration testing documentation are submitted to the client for review. If the client agrees the unit is not salvageable, the unit is then sent to one of three EECO recycling facilities for EPA approved decommissioning.

Units that do pass the evaluation continue on to the wash station, a series of three-walled showers similar to that of an upscale gym locker room. After a thorough scrubbing, Excellence bodywork technicians address any blemishes and wrap the units in freshly branded decals.

Each step of the way, the unit is scanned to maintain the most up-to-date information on every asset in the internal database. Clients are able to customize their reports to analyze process efficiencies, track status and easily recall information on a specific unit via its unique serial number.
