Training. Education. Mentorship.

About Me

Trevor Matthews

I am Trevor Matthews and I have gone from being a first generation technician on the tools, to being considered a world class commercial refrigeration and compressor subject matter expert. 

Over the last 18 years, I’ve developed my skills by networking and learning from the best in the industry. From working as a technician installing, commissioning, and servicing supermarket racks and commercial refrigeration systems to training thousands of technicians, managers, and business owners throughout North America.  

I founded Refrigeration Mentor because I saw a need in the refrigeration industry around three pillars: training, education, and mentorship.  Having on the tools experience gives me a unique perspective as an educator and trainer.  I am able to facilitate engaging discussions between technicians about refrigeration because I have been there, and I know what it’s really like in the field.   

I am passionate about refrigeration.  I want to help fill these knowledge gaps, and share what I have learned from foundation blocks to advanced technologies in refrigeration. 

Let’s get a conversation going.
