Founded on July 7, 1960, by German immigrants Hubert and Johannes Schildwachter, Ártico was the pioneer in commercial refrigeration in the Itajaí Valley. Its main initial activity was focused on the manufacture of refrigerated counters and in a short time its brand was already prominent throughout the region, due to the quality of its products.

Today, the modern industrial park installed and the application of the latest technologies, refrigeration systems with low power consumption, solar energy, and operation with ecological gas (CFC Free) harmless to the ozone layer, guarantee a high performance end product, and places Ártico among the largest refrigeration industries in southern Brazil.

Display Freezers, Commercial Equipment, Breweries, and Cold Rooms are part of Ártico's product line.

Buerger, daughter of the founder and CEO of Ártico.
