Publix's warehouses, such as Boxed Meat/Dairy, Frozen Food and Produce are refrigerated and must maintain specific temperatures to store our refrigerated and frozen products. Refrigeration Mechanics maintain our refrigeration and air conditioning for these warehouses to keep them operating efficiently and safely. These Distribution facilities are located in Florida (Jacksonville and Deerfield Beach).
Refrigeration Mechanics perform systematic preventive maintenance that incorporates industry best practices. They also troubleshoot and repair a variety of industrial refrigerant equipment, such as compressors, condensers, evaporators and pumps. The Mechanics read and interpret blue prints, schematics, and technical manuals. They also have a strong understanding of the proper handling and recycling processes for chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), hydrochlorocarbon (HCFC), and ammonia refrigerants. Furthermore, they use a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to generate and process the maintenance repairs performed.
