Meet Alfred

Owner of BARCO

I have been involved in the family business for over 40 years and have worked full time for 35 years in our Bay Area family business. All work has been done hands-on starting at the age of 13. I have watched the Bay Area Refrigeration Co scene grow and flourish since the '70s. I have worked on every type of equipment in the Industry and really enjoy the challenge of service. Since the age of 18, I have been in my own work truck while my dad was in his.

"I really enjoy the personal contact I make from running a family business and wouldn't change that for the world.  "
