Matt Bruno founded TDR in 1972 when he merged Turlock Refrigeration Center with Turlock-based Miller Dairy Supply. The business initially specialized in servicing dairy and refrigeration equipment. When the industry trend shifted from small dairies to larger, more automated facilities, TDR moved into dairy design and construction. Bruno’s sons — Tony and Mathew — joined the family business upon graduation from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, in 1997 and 2000, respectively. Under their leadership, the younger Bruno’s pushed TDR to the next level. They added an aftermarket division in 2002 and began offering an extensive line of aftermarket products to their customers.
