Who we are
Thermogard was founded in NZ in the late 1990’s as a cold-chain solution for fresh seafood exporters.
Founded by Clem Smith and his son Sherman, an innovator and an accountant, Thermogard is now a third-generation family business, growing from its strong foundations.
Thermogard runs a digital transformation function to drive international connectivity and best practices in both business systems and manufacturing excellence.
For over 20 years we have consistently delivered quality cold chain solutions. While these solutions are still solid and reliable, we embrace change and are always looking for ways to do things better. We listen to what’s important to our customers to really understand what they need. Innovation is in our DNA, we won’t wait for you to ask, we analyse existing practices and isolate areas ripe for product improvement or enhancement.
Today Thermogard is a global leader in cool-chain technology. Thermogard embraces technology and data to ensure we adapt quickly to constantly evolving market demands and guarantees our innovation cycle keeps Thermogard at the front of the market.
We get excited when we know a product has arrived at its destination in top shape; like it had just been pulled from the ocean, cut from the garden or freshly sealed by the butcher.
We believe that the whole world should be able to experience freshness. That every business should be able to confidently transit goods anywhere in the world.
