Atlanta Refrigeration Honored in Inc. 500 for 3rd Time

01 August, 2008

Altanta- For the third year in a row Atlanta Refrigeration has made the Inc. 500 list. Inc. 500 is the only major business magazine dedicated exclusively to owners and managers of growing private companies that delivers real solutions for today’s innovative company builders. ARS is excited to be a part of this exclusive group.

Atlanta Refrigeration Service is number 3,460 on the 2008 Inc. 5000 list- the fastest growing private companies in the United States. ARS continues to expand with new service locations in the Savannah, GA, Macon GA, and Columbus GA. Using proprietary web-based technology ARS can continue to grow at a tremendous rate while providing customers personalized service. 

CEO Dave Brautigan states “Our growth is very scalable thanks to using outside the industry business practices on a web based platform we built over the last 8 years. Hiring only the best technicians, combined with our technology and proven 39 year old business practices, we feel confident we can become the leading service agency in the United States.

Since 2001, when CEO Dave Brautigan took the helm from his father, ARS has been expanding both geographically and expanding through deeper service offerings to customers. Increasing technicians means the ability to handle larger contracts and respond quickly--typically within two hours--keeping kitchens running and customers satisfied. 

It used to be that ARS only provided refrigeration services, but today ARS offers turn-key installation of kitchens and all the equipment that goes with that kitchen. ARS backs that up by providing factory authorized service during the warranty period and then provides on-demand service on the equipment until it reaches the end of its lifespan.

Atlanta Refrigeration is proud to make Inc. 5000 for the third year in a row and strives to continue their growth in 2009.  Visit the Inc500 by going to or visit our profile on the INC website by clicking here.
