Norcold Inc., a leading maker of gas-absorption and AC/DC refrigerator/freezers for the RV, marine and truck markets, recently expanded its capacity at its longtime Sidney, Ohio, refrigerator manufacturing facility.

“Simply put, Norcold added capacity to meet demand,” said Mike Mesharer, director of sales, North America. “Along with the industry rebound, our successful ‘Colder-Bigger-Lighter’ campaign has increased consumer interest. The additional manufacturing capacity was necessary to meet increased demand as more customers switched to our products.”

Norcold is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Thetford Corp.m a privately-held company with seven manufacturing facilities in four nations.
