Diamond Refrigerators was started in the year 2000 in a small 30 foot by 40 foot building by James Miller, an Amishman, who had previous experience with compression refrigeration. His idea was to fix propane refrigerators in RV’s and motor homes for the many tourists that visit the state of Michigan each summer and repair refrigerators for the local Amish community and other Amish communities surrounding them.
Business was brisk the first summer and the following year Omer Schrock, another Amishman, joined James in a partnership and business continued to pick up with each consecutive year.
They started by calling other RV repair centers wondering if they could buy non-working propane refrigerators that they had replaced with new refrigerators the previous summer. They found one place that had about 20 refrigerators that they could have, free for the taking. They quickly snatched these up and by using good parts from the different refrigerators, they were able to repair and fix a few of the refrigerators. These refurbished refrigerators sold very well. They continued this practice for a few years.
By 2003 James and Omer had built a much larger manufacturing facility, hired 3 more workers, and purchased a tubing bender and started rolling out their own, newly designed cooling system that they installed in new electric refrigerators that were stripped of their compression refrigeration system. This was a major success and got them started. Their new design was not without flaws and over the following years changes were made that produced better results.
In 2011 James left the business to pursue other interests and Omer took his place as the primary owner and Senior Partner. An even larger manufacturing facility was added in 2011 that greatly improved efficiency.
