Once, we were born

Refrigue Para ō Frio L.D.A. was founded in 1972 in Palmela, Portugal, as a small company specializing exclusively in the production of technical products for workers operating inside refrigerated cells. After years of sacrifice and passion invested in achieving their goals, in 1996 the then CEO Giorgina Reis was awarded as Entrepreneur of the Year in California.

Then, we grew

The following year, in 1997, the Polar Bear became Refrigue's symbol and remains to this day the iconic and distinguishable logo of the brand, an undisputed synonym of strength and protection. Since 2002, Mat-Giò srl has acquired ownership of the brand.

Now we live

Today, nearly 50 years later, approximately 60 workers are still employed at the Portuguese factory in Palmela, continuing to produce certified products for working in temperatures as low as -30°C. Refrigue's mission is to create quality products that ensure durability and are simple, versatile, functional, and offer excellent value for money, suitable not only for facing extreme cold but also meeting the everyday needs of life.
