About Us

History

SunDanzer was founded by the leader of NASA’s Advanced Technology Refrigeration Project with the goal of utilizing state-of-the-art technology for solving age-old earth-bound problems. Beginning in 1999, SunDanzer began an improbable journey of bringing real-world, sustainable solutions to off-grid refrigeration needs.  The NASA technology translated into the world’s first battery-free solar powered refrigerator, designed for small, off-grid consumers.  Since that time, SunDanzer has expanded to offer an increasing array of products while maintaining our focus on refrigeration.    By forming strategic alliances with world-class refrigerator manufacturers, SunDanzer has been able to bring cutting edge technology into the remote homes of customers at a very low cost.  Our unwavering commitment to quality and service has allowed us to maintain and grow our loyal customer and dealer base. With two US locations, manufacturing facilities on three continents, and representatives in Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia, SunDanzer can provide sales and service anywhere in the world.

 

Values

From our inception, our guiding principles have been:

1. Always put the customer first and everything else will follow.

Since the beginning, we’ve focused on providing the best to our customers. We know that the best way is to do it right the first time.  Thus our units are among the most reliable in the world.  We stand always and everywhere ready to support our product.

2. It’s best to do one thing really, really well.

Our expertise is refrigeration. Our research facilities, our people, and our experience put us in a unique situation to solve refrigeration problems with speed and cost-effectiveness that are unrivaled. Our dedication to finding better solutions to refrigeration needs, whether for home, commercial, or industrial applications, allows us to apply what we’ve learned to new products, like battery-free vaccine units. Our hope is to continue to improve the possibilities of highly efficient refrigeration in an increasingly energy-scarce world.

3. Treat people the way you’d like them to treat you.

A very old maxim with which we happen to agree.  We create a culture of mutual respect and care because it’s the right thing to do.  Our people are our company. They are passionate about our products and our customers. They take full advantage of our decentralized, self-directed team culture and create a respectful workplace where people are treated fairly and are highly motivated to succeed.

4. Sustainability

Sustainability means a lot of things to a lot of people. To us it means the common goal of preserving and protecting the planet. We engage in sustainable practices that conserve natural resources and reduce environmental impact. As importantly, we make products that are designed to improve the lives of people in sustainable ways.
