Myron Breakstone started RefrigiWear in 1954 with a vision to create a “modern way to keep warm” for workers that faced cold, demanding conditions. His experiences in Northern Italy during World War II enhanced his first-hand knowledge of working in cold temperatures. Back home, he witnessed how the cold affected the employees of his family’s dairy business. He knew there had to be a better way to protect workers in the cold.
Throughout our history, we’ve introduced new innovations and continue to evolve as we visit your worksites and hear about your challenges. Listening to workers and never settling for “good enough” —that’s what makes us the best at keeping you warm, safe and focused on getting the job done.
