Perlick Corporation, maker of commercial and residential refrigeration appliances, is turning 90 years old in 2007.  The company, based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S., is a rarity in an age of continual mergers and acquisitions – it is still run by the family that founded it.

In 1917, Robert Perlick and son Walter founded R. Perlick Brass Works in Milwaukee.  The machine shop specialized in brass valves and fittings and soon found a niche in the manufacture of sanitary brass fittings for the brewing industry. The company survived Prohibition and the Great Depression by introducing new and innovative products, and after World War II it added mechanical refrigeration and under-bar equipment to its product line.

Now in its fourth generation, the company has used its commercial experience in refrigeration and beverage dispensing to bring innovative products to luxury residential refrigeration.  It now offers home entertaining products such as multi-zone refrigerated cabinets, freezers, refrigerated wine cabinets, cocktail centers, and blender stations.
