It all started in 1919 with a few Swedish mates, Baltzar von Platen and Carl Munters, wagging school to prove they could create a cooling effect by using heat! It worked, their time away from the classroom resulted in the worlds first refrigerator. From here their idea was taken up by bigger companies with Electrolux making huge inroads into the camping and road tripping leisure market.
Today Dometic stands on it's own two feet and is the company behind the Waeco label of portable fridges and freezers, most recently the highly efficient CFX range that we trust to transport our cold food and drinks to every corner of Australia. Their products extend to cater for the needs of camping, RV touring and four wheel drive escapes.
Dometic products range from vacuum sealers for food to rotomould ice chests, portable toilets and an award winning range of car fridges that excel in reliability and performance. Their design approach is second to none and is very much user focussed. By purchasing a Dometic product you are investing in an outdoor product that will enhance your outdoor lifestyle for generations.
This may just be our coolest interview yet. In this episode, Ben and Lauren sit down with the Global Product Manager of Mobile Cooling at Dometic, Paul Montaut. Kick back and crack open a cold one as the three of them discuss the ins and outs of Dometic fridges - literally, from their capacity and compressor to how well they combat the weather!
