We've been supplying high quality fridges & freezers for houses, farms, cabins and caravans, tiny houses, boats, buses and RV's for over 35 years in Australia.

To do this, we keep things pretty simple. After all, we believe that simplicity is the key to reliability.

If we’re going to do something - we do it properly.

If it works - we don’t fix it. But if it’s broken - we fix it straight away.

Proudly a 100% Australian owned family company. Since 1982.


DP Refrigeration was established by Gary Kottmann in 1982. With a background in engineering and a belief in good old-fashioned customer service, the business grew quickly. Within a couple of years DP Refrigeration had developed a national distribution network for Consul gas fridges throughout Australia.

Over the next 17 years DP Refrigeration became one of Consuls largest gas fridge customers in the world and continued to support customers and distributors throughout Australia with the supply of high quality Gas fridges and freezers to some of the most remote parts of this great land.

In 1989, Bushman Portable Fridges was established as a division of DP Refrigeration. Bushman focuses on building super high quality portable fridges and accessories, designed specifically to survive and thrive in the harshest outback conditions.

When Consul ceased operations in 2011, we ensured a full inventory of spare parts would be available for our customers well into the future. At this time Arcticold was established to meet the needs of our Australian customers. 

Fast forward to today; DP Refrigeration, Arcticold and Bushman Portable Fridges are now known collectively as Bushman Offgrid. We have a national distribution network which enables us to supply products to all major towns and cities Australia. We have a great range of products, and are looking to the future with positivity and enthusiasm.

Our goals going forward are simple, make the best quality fridges and accessories possible and continue to support our independent distributors and customers. The last 30+ years have been great; the next 30 might be even better.
