The Devilee story started back in 1955, with a young, 20-year-old John Devilee, who was fresh from a boat that had brought him out from Holland, in search of a better life.
Within a day, the qualified refrigeration mechanic had secured his first job in Geelong, discovering men with his skill set were in high demand.
Within 2 years, John had embraced his new country, fallen in love and was set to chase down further opportunities on the back of a motorcycle. John and partner, Helen, arrived in Mildura in 1957 and quickly found that as a refrigeration mechanic, choosing Mildura, a rapidly expanding town with a warm climate, was a stroke of genius. He was perfectly placed to create the life he had dreamed about.
John began working for a business in Mildura, undertaking refrigeration repairs until he won his own independent contract, selling and installing a cool room in a general store.
This contract was a life changing moment that made him choose between the securities of regular employment or taking the giant step of establishing his own business.
John never shied away from the giant steps and in 1961 he started trading as John Devilee Refrigeration. His work ethic and commitment to sourcing the best brands for Mildura’s challenging climate meant that his business was an immediate success. Expansion continued over a number of years, with workshops and show rooms added as the business grew.
