Norfrost by Ebac - The new & improved range of chest freezers

Norfrost meets Ebac

In 2013 British manufacturer Ebac acquired Norfrost Chest Freezers. With the same values in mind Ebac look to put their 30 years of knowledge in refrigeration and manufacturing together with Norfrost’s 40 year Heritage to create an unbeatable range of chest freezer.

Here you can learn more about the Norfrost Heritage and how these two great companies have come together…

Over 40 years of experience and innovation

Since manufacturing of domestic chest freezers began in the 1970’s, Norfrost also applied their expertise to other aspects of refrigeration including branded freezers for retail outlets and large, well known consumer brands.

Norfrost began making chest freezers over 40 years ago

Norfrost were a company of constant innovation, always striving to be the best in their field. So much so that they lead the change in refrigeration technology to CFC free chest freezers, with other brands following suit.

A reputation bulit on reliability

Known and loved in Britain as one of the UK’s most popular Chest Freezer brands, Norfrost has a reputation for reliability and longevity. Your grandparents and parents will probably have owned one and likely still do!

Norfrost reliability strengthened by Ebac quality and manufacturing expertise

Ebac seize a great opportunity

In 2013, the demise of iconic retailer Comet unfortunately led to the Norfrost brand heading into administration. Ebac were presented with the opportunity to save this valuable British brand by purchasing the rights to manufacture Norfrost chest freezers. With plans to move into the white goods market this seemed a perfect strategic move and also a great opportunity to save a great British brand.

40 years of knowledge is priceless, and Ebac made sure every bit was kept and passed on to help create the next generation of chest freezer.

In the months to follow machinery was transferred from the old Norfrost factory in Caithness, down to Ebac’s Newton Aycliffe factory. The sharing of knowledge from old Norfrost employees to the Ebac engineering and production teams ensured no product knowledge was lost and a seamless handover was made.

By the summer of 2015, after many hours of product development the new Norfrost by Ebac brand of chest freezers are in full production and available for sale.
