Bailey Reorganizes Miami Operations—Paul Gausted Appointed Vice President

According to Sigurd Nilsen, president of Bailey Refrigeration, the firm's highly successful Miami branch has been reorganized as a separate company within the Bailey group of companies. "The growth of cruise activity out of south Florida has been phenomenal," says Mr. Nilsen, explaining the move. "We felt a fully independent operation was needed to give it the service it deserves." Operating under the name Bailey R e f r i g e r a t i o n and Supply Company, the new company will offer a wide variety of refrigerators and freezers, ice cubers, water coolers, and air-conditioners specially engineered for marine use. An experienced service and engineering staff will be supported by the South's largest inventory of repair and maintenance parts.

Among the parts lines carried by Bailey in Miami are Carrier, York, Tecumseh, Copeland, and Trane, as well as Kold-Draft ice cuber parts and Danfoss controls.

The company will also function as an authorized North American parts and service center for Electrolux of Sweden.

Mr. Nilsen announced that the newly appointed vice president, Paul Gausted, would head the day-to-day operation of Bailey Refrigeration and Supply. "Mr.

Gausted has been doing the job since Bailey first opened in Miami as a branch six years ago." He has more than 30 years experience in marine refrigeration and air-conditioning, with special expertise in cruise ship operations.

Bailey Refrigeration and Supply is located midway between Port Everglades and downtown Miami at 524 N.E. 190th Street, North Miami, Fla. 33179; telephone (305) 651-4160.
