ISG has expanded and bolstered its food and industrial business unit through the acquisition of Golden Industrial Refrigeration (GIR) of Milwaukee. According to ISG, the addition of refrigeration design allows the full-service architecture, engineering and planning firm to provide a greater range of services to its existing clients.

GIR is a refrigeration engineering firm that focuses on large-scale refrigeration. ISG will utilize this experience to expand services for sports and rec clients in ice arenas projects. According to ISG, bringing refrigeration engineering in-house means a streamlined process for coordination and communication and a single point of contact for clients.

“GIR’s extensive knowledge of industrial refrigeration supports ISG’s diversification within the food production, processing and warehousing industry by expanding our beverage and brewery client base,” said ISG CEO Lynn Bruns, PE.
