JD Wasir loves a challenge, and his profession affords him the opportunity to encounter them on a regular basis.

“Every system brings a new challenge involving dancing with precise temperatures, critical humidity factors and high energy efficiency,” he said.

Wasir realized that there was a need for a compact, packaged refrigeration system that could eliminate expensive installation costs often associated with conventional split type of refrigeration system designs, which required site installation.

So, Wasir designed and built a packaged refrigeration solution, 100% factory-tested prior to shipping.

“The refrigerant charged and calibrated system can be mounted on the exterior wall or door of the cold room. Once electrically hooked, the system is ready to operate and cool the produce,” he said.

Wasir is proud that every refrigeration system he designs helps keep produce crisp and delicious — “from farm to table.” Additionally, he takes pride in providing solutions that meet agricultural demands and contribute to sustainable and efficient food supply chains.

He draws inspiration from the pioneers in the refrigeration engineering industry such as Willis Carter, who laid the foundation for temperature control technology.

“I am blessed with inheriting the legacy of expertise and wisdom passed down to me. (I’m) trying my best to follow the tradition,” he said.
