Who We Are

JAX Refrigeration, Inc. is the nation’s most responsive single-source provider of refrigeration, mechanical, HVAC and thermal construction services. We specialize in custom-designed engineering and system maintenance solutions for industrial and commercial projects. Our five major industry departments – JAX Refrigeration, JAX Mechanical, MEAS (Mechanical Engineering and Solutions), JAXCool and RHVACS (Restaurant HVAC Specialty) – work symbiotically to ensure a seamless process from start to finish.

Our professional, degreed engineers manage each project with a focus on innovation and immediate maintenance responsiveness. They develop creative, professional solutions for our clients while delivering superior customer service. Our highly skilled technicians also provide excellent installation and maintenance with an uncompromising focus on safety and quality.

JAX Refrigeration is known for its ability to integrate existing and cutting-edge technology and techniques in a way that creates systems with higher efficiency and lower cost. Our multiple departments cover the spectrum of service needs, which fosters cross-company and cross-industry communication that is stronger than our competitors. By coordinating engineering and construction, JAX Refrigeration can alleviate many conflicts even before arriving on site. Our ability to stay one step ahead and reduce scope gap between trades is one of the reasons why we have become a fast-growing, award-winning company.

At our heart, however, JAX Refrigeration is a community-oriented company. We created JAXCares, our 501c3 nonprofit, in 2014 to help support inspiring individuals and charitable organizations through fundraising and events.

Our History

JAX Refrigeration began in 2010 with four employees in a small, Jacksonville Beach office. President and founder Mark Lowery worked in the industry for more than two decades before taking the leap to establish JAX Refrigeration. His goal of providing a higher level of professional expertise and customer service to his clients, coupled with his commitment to create an inspiring company culture, led JAX Refrigeration to become the award-winning company that it is today.

October 2011 marked a pivotal moment in the success and corporate mindset of JAX Refrigeration and its employees. Operational restrictions from the company’s original investors caused JAX Refrigeration to lose two major projects. Ten employees had to be laid off and the remaining staff opted to take a pay cut to stay with the company, coming together with a determination to make it work.

The loss spurred CEO Mark Lowery to buy out the investors, allowing JAX Refrigeration to pursue new types of projects, and more of them. Employees’ wages were reinstated retroactively and paid back within six months; but it was the employees’ committed faith in JAX Refrigeration throughout it all that shaped the company’s unyielding support of its people. Together, they became family.

JAX Refrigeration has since grown into a nationwide organization with four branch offices, a fabrication shop and more than 70 employees. Despite being one of the region’s fastest-growing companies, JAX Refrigeration has kept the traditional, family-based values it was founded upon. Even its Jacksonville Beach headquarters, completed in September 2015, echoes the company’s balance between cutting-edge industry trends and a people-first focus. It serves as a visual reminder of the company’s innovation, talent and valued employees.
