About Us

The origins of Cross Group date back to the mid-19th century and to the centre of Cork city – where two members of the Cross family started a carriage hire and stables business. During the 1920s, Cross’s Garage Ltd extended their business extended to the sale of ice boxes and mechanical domestic refrigeration. And so began the long association with refrigeration

Our early sales ledgers show that our first commercial coldroom was sold in the early 1930s to the Royal Oyster Tavern in Cork – a famous city bar and restaurant and popular haunt for the residents. As a result, the group soon realised the potential of commercial refrigeration and retrained some of their motor mechanics in the disciplines/technicalities of refrigeration.

Refrigeration Building

In 1966, Cross’ were appointed Frigidare distributors for Ireland and – at this time – decided to separate their refrigeration business from the garage. This led to the formation of what is now Cross Refrigeration. In 1968, the business was acquired from the Cross family and made the move fully into commercial refrigeration – a staple of the business to this very day

Our group of companies has developed into a young, diversified and dynamic enterprise with interests in multiple sectors. The core of the business remains refrigeration, but our presence is being successfully felt in a number of related sectors too. Today, the enlarged Cross Group brings in an annual turnover of €80m+ – and that growth looks set to continue.

For nearly 50 years, Cross Refrigeration has been Ireland’s leading supplier of commercial refrigeration solutions. We provide world class design, installation and support services, with a 24/7 nationwide maintenance network available to call upon 365 days a year.
