Sustainable Refrigeration Solutions and Upgrades

We’re energy & refrigeration experts with experience working at some of the industry's largest food retailers.

Taper works with supermarkets across the west coast for refrigeration upgrades and remodels

60% of your energy usage at your store comes from your refrigeration system.

So, when it comes to minimizing operating costs and maximizing your capital investments, it matters how you maintain your perishable products to reduce shrinkage while increasing shopper satisfaction and staying up-to-speed on meeting on-going regulatory requirements.

"[People at Taper] are responsive, knowledgeable and quick to respond to changes & challenges. Taper is a trusted partner of Safeway NorCal."
