Chillking® opened as Pat’s Refrigeration in 1995. I worked for several years prior to that building one off chillers and installing equipment. My son James and I started as J.P.’s Express Service in 1997, installing refrigeration and restaurant equipment along with building chillers as we sold them. We saw a need for a quality heavy duty chiller in the restaurant and food processing industry, at that point we designed, built, and had ETL certified a line up of 2 tons to 10 tons. We designed those chillers to avoid the problems we had experienced with other brands. Thinking those 8 models of chillers were more than we could ever need. In 2003, Chillking Chillers Inc. was incorporated in the state of Texas to match our brand name. We then made the decision to concentrate on water chillers. Our name emphasized the direction and goals of our company. The response has been excellent and our business has grown. Chillking Chillers now has distributors worldwide and has chillers operating worldwide. Chillking Manufacturing Group LTD based in Dublin Ireland is a branch of Chillking Chillers Inc. We have plans for a Chillking owned distributorship based in the area of the city of Athlone.

Chillking has grown rapidly and now has models of ETL listed UL approved chillers for most any industry. We are also EU CE listed. Chillking manufactures chillers sized from 3,000 BTU chillers to 200 tons(2,400,000 BTU). In 2015, Chillking purchased property on Texas Highway 95 and built a new factory. We completed our move towards the end of 2015 and opened the new year of 2016 in our new manufacturing facility.

Chillking has been building chillers for over twenty years and our goal remains the same: “Build the most trouble-free chiller in the industry.” The original 5 ton chiller built in 1995 is still running and has only required routine maintenance. Chillking guarantees every chiller with a Chillking designed evaporator to exceed its BTU rating by 10% at 90F ambient temperature or 110F condenser temperature. Every chiller is tested under load and each has a BTU test for 110% LWT. We are the only chiller manufacturer with such a guarantee.

Although Chillking started manufacturing chillers to support ice cream machines and slush machines, we now manufacture chillers for any industry. Chillking has approximately 500 chillers in Sonic Drive-Ins®. Chillking is also the only authorized chiller manufacturer for IDQ® (International Dairy Queen) and numerous other chains producing ice cream or yogurt. Some of our customers are Dell, Disney World, and Hilton. Many cancer treatment centers and MRI centers use Chillking. From ice cream, to beer, whiskey, and wine or industrial, we have you covered. Chillking will also design a chiller for special applications. Often for no added fee.

Chillking Chillers Inc. has two factory laws that the factory must abide by.  They are:

1. Each Chillking with a Chillking-designed evaporator must exceed 110% of its listed tonnage or it does not ship.

2. Use as little energy as possible within the boundaries of the laws of thermal-dynamics.
