Refrigeration Unlimited



We pride ourselves in our ability to adapt to changing customer needs. From the beginning, our founder’s mission was to serve the needs of our refrigeration customers. As a result of that passion, we have grown to serve new projects and remodels ranging in scale from small grocery marts to very large and customized supermarkets. We want to be your full service refrigeration, HVAC, and installation contractor. We provide:


We are built on a foundation constructed from a customer base that demands trust, quality, and the latest industry advancements.

Our History

Refrigeration Unlimited was founded in 1993 by Rick Patrick and Kurt Knutz. The company has grown steadily over the past 20 years. Now with dozens of employees in four service regions across Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska, we have become the solutions partner of choice for many clients large & small. Our company is built on providing a quality service judged by the eyes of our customers. What separate us from every other contractor is our professional people and extensive knowledge in commercial refrigeration, HVAC planning, consulting, design, installation and service. Although RUI was built on refrigeration, customers have driven us in to high voltage electrical, EMS controls, industrial refrigeration and general contracting.
