Every story has a beginning. And the story for True Manufacturing begins in 1945, when Robert Trulaske, along with his father Frank and brother Art, decided to form a refrigeration company. At first, they produced their roll-top bottle coolers in their own garage. But, within a year, they moved their manufacturing site to a warehouse in downtown St.Louis.
Success and Expansion
Eventually, True products would catch the eye of some beverage companies like 7Up and Pepsi, helping True gain some recognition in the refrigeration industry. As the years continued to go by, True began investing in research and development and capital expansion, and, as a result, they would go from a small family-owned company to a worldwide leader in refrigeration.
