Due to market forces and conditions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Master-Bilt manufacturing facility in New Albany, Miss., will permanently close, says owner Refrigerated Solutions Group (RSG).

Product manufacturing for Master-Bilt’s line of refrigerated coolers and freezers for food-service applications will be consolidated to RSG’s Hudson, Wis., facility by October 31. The RSG warehouse facility in Guntown, Miss., will remain an ongoing warehouse and distribution operation.

“RSG is committed to maintaining the Master-Bilt brand and will continue to support our customers, sales representatives, service agents and channel partners,” said Chief Executive Officer Kevin Fink.
