"We began our store renovation in the summer of 2017. We completely removed the existing refrigeration from the former business as we prepared for a complete building makeover and building addition. We needed a competent refrigeration company to renovate existing equipment and also install new freezer and refrigeration units. This was a large undertaking that involved over a dozen refrigeration units. 


We obtained quotes for the job and decided on Mader’s refrigeration for the project. Our decision was mainly based on all of  the positive feedback we received from other businesses who have used their services. This was the best move we made!


Dealing with the Mader’s team has been great experience from the planning stage to the end. Neil and Kyle have been excellent to deal with throughout the process. They are very professional and always found solutions to any obstacles that arose. Their commitment to get the job done right in a timely manner was always a priority. It was such a pleasure working with their team throughout the entire job.

Since the completion, there have been required maintenance issues and minor breakdowns.  They are always very prompt to respond to any issues and are very quick to complete repairs. Warranty repairs are dealt with seamlessly as well. I have dealt with many contractors over the years and Mader’s Refrigeration would be among the top for quality, service, responsiveness and being just good people to deal with. I will continue to use Mader’s for all of our upcoming needs.


I wish Neil, Kyle, Tyler and Connie the very best and welcome anyone considering their services to personally contact me for a reference."

"Our family had been involved in the ownership and operation of a DQ Grill & Chill franchise in Bridgewater for almost 30 years.  During that time we experienced a great number of DQ system changes, including our refrigerated equipment needs, our HVAC system and technological changes to every facet of operations.The one thing that has been there from day one until present is Neil Mader, our refrigeration specialist.  Although Neil had been an employee of several different companies until he created his own business, we always experienced the same quality of service.  For that reason we followed him from employer to employer and he became our go-to-guy for all our refrigeration and air conditioning needs.Neil's work was always professional, timely, efficient and of great value to our operation. He was always accessible and available to handle emergency situations.  We recently sold our DQ and would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Neil for his service over our entire DQ experience."
