About Us

We are truly proud of our history at Cold Logic

‘What takes us back to the past are our memories – what brings us forward is our dreams’

When we look back at the past – the founding directors started with years hands on experience but a desire to create something themselves and to ‘dream’ that they could be a major player in the industrial refrigeration market. That was more than 30 years ago and they should be very proud of the business Cold Logic is today.

From humble beginnings of two panel vans and a bunch of tools, IRS (Industrial Refrigeration Services) was born by Jeff Cannan and David Lane and with a name change in 1999, Cold Logic has grown to more than 45 people and now services many leading Australian businesses clients across Australia. This dream didn’t become reality through magic, it took sweat, determination and hard work by the owners and key people.

What makes our story so special is the people within. Cold Logic’s first apprentice 27 years ago was Brad Semmler, a very talented individual who has nearly done it all in the industrial refrigeration industry. He is truly loyal to the business and is Cold Logic’s Technical Director at is seen as a leading mind in Industrial Refrigeration in Australia. He has completed leading roles in Service, Sales, Design and Engineering making him our most versatile and valued employees.

Another long standing and loyal employee has been Paul Zammit. Paul has been with Cold Logic for over 28 years. He holds engineering trade as well as refrigeration and air conditioning qualifications. Paul has extensive experience in the service, maintenance, installation and commissioning of food processing plants, wineries, abattoirs and many other applications. That years of experience makes him one of the most knowledgeable ‘fridgies’ in our business and has now lead to him providing a comprehensive training program to all staff and clients and also has responsibility for the company’s OH&S and Safe Work Practices.

This business has stayed true to its values and continued on its growth path thanks to its founding owner and director Jeff Cannan. Another individual who started on the tools in 1975 as a qualified refrigeration mechanic , Jeff has lived and breathed industrial refrigeration. In 1984 he started business as IRS and through is devotion and guidance, the business is where it is today – a proud, successful company that has always put servicing its clients as its #1 priority. Nothing is truer to his hard work and commitment to our clients as he regularly takes first call on our after hours number.

There are so many other that have contributed significantly to our business and for that we are true thankful.

We are now dreaming big—we now have a fantastic mix of youth and experience in our organisation, putting us in the best possible position for continued growth.
