The Derby brand

Derby. Design refinement for over 50 years.

A history of success and commitment to quality.

The history of the Derby brand began in 1954, in Viborg, Denmark, when Richardt Petersen started the production of washing machines. Five years later, Petersen decided to enter the refrigeration market with its first line of Chest Freezers.

In 1977, after many years of sales growth and success, Derby began the production of upright refrigerators and freezers. Already at that time, the company was careful with its products’ design and finishing, which would become the main signature of its products all over Europe.

After 1996, Derby went through three acquisition processes, joining forces with the Danish company Caravell – brand of commercial refrigeration renowned for the high quality and performance of its ice cream freezers.

In 2006, became part of Metalfrio Solutions, one of the world’s largest commercial refrigeration companies, which unites the brands Metalfrio and Klimasan.

Over a period of more than 50 years, Derby’s tradition of providing innovative products with unquestionable design and quality has been maintained.
