Serving the Local Barrie Community Since 1971

R.A. Archer Refrigeration Ltd. was founded in April of 1971 by Mr. Ross Archer. After working for a local refrigeration company, Ross decided at this time it was time to strike out on his own and start up a refrigeration business for himself.

The business grew quickly and Ross soon needed an apprentice to help him keep up with all his work. In December of 1973, Ross hired Larry to join the team. After many years of working together, Larry and his wife purchased the business from Ross in June of 2000 and operated the business until 2017 with his family. 


In 2013, current owner Matt was looking to move back to Ontario after living in Alberta for a number of years. Larry hired Matt as a certified Red Seal Journeyman in June 2013. In August 2017, Matt and his wife Katie purchased the business. Katie began in the office at that time and they continue to uphold the same quality service and integrity of the Archer name. 

We are proud to serve the local community of Barrie as one of only a few commercial refrigeration specialists. Give us a call today to learn more about us and the services we can provide.
