De Laat Koudetechniek

De Laat Koudetechniek has been a pioneer in industrial and sustainable refrigeration technology for almost sixty years. Founded by Jan de Laat, led by Adriaan van Beek and Brigitte de Laat for the past thirty-five years. Throughout this time, we have grown into a modern organisation with around 30 employees, but still remain the same solid family-owned business with which we once started. From our office in Ammerzoden, we daily satisfy our world-wide customers in their needs for ripening, cooling and climate technology. Always in the most sustainable, energy efficient and innovative way.

De Laat Koudetechniek


What do we stand for?

From day one, our focus has been on innovation and sustainability: by continuing to develop our cooling and ripening systems in a more energy-efficient way, our customers are able to save tons of money annually. We lower their operational costs in the ripening or cooling processes, by minimizing both energy consumption as well as maintenance costs.

We are an expert in the design, installation and maintenance of ripening, cooling and climate systems. Our innovative and patented ripening techniques ensure the most homogeneous ripening and energy savings up to 45% compared to competing systems. Apart from that, as a specialist in (industrial) cooling technology, we know no boundaries when it comes to cooling- and freezing systems and can therefore realize any demand. Finally, we have much expertise when it comes to climate technology. Our climate systems are able to, apart from sustainable cool, also heat. As with every system by De Laat, combined with the lowest energy consumption and least noise.

Just like 55 years ago, only a customer who is more than satisfied makes us satisfied: therefore, we do everything in our effort to achieve this. We do that every single day, by ensuring service, quality and innovation of the highest level available in refrigeration technology.  

Our mission

As an innovative company, we advise our customers worldwide and translate their specific requirements for ripening and conditioning processes into efficient and sustainable refrigeration solutions.

The continuity of our installations is guaranteed by our 24/7 available service department.
