We have experienced significant acceptance of TrakRef® in fairly short order

The newly formed TrackRef® LLC is independent of Polar Technology LLC and the reclaim business acquired by Hudson. Hudson is not associated with TrackRef® LLC, and the acquisition by Hudson does not involve expansion of TrackRef® into Hudson’s distributor base.

TrakRef, LLC, is wholly owned by refrigerant industry veteran, Ted Atwood who is president and founder of the company.

“We have experienced significant acceptance of TrakRef® in fairly short order,” said Ted Atwood.  “With over 17,000 active users of the TrakRef® platform, selling Polar Technology to Hudson enables us to focus our energies on an area where we have gained some significant understanding and expertise – the comprehensive and accountable management of all aspects of mechanical systems operations.  This move allows us to concentrate on the highest level of delivery of the platform,” Atwood continued.  

“We have found that, typically, most companies that actually own the mechanical systems, do not truly understand the financial and environmental impact these systems have on their bottom line or the environment.  Nor, do they treat the refrigerants within those systems as an asset.  TrakRef® is the only management tool of its kind that was developed from within the refrigerant industry and, not only allows ownership of the refrigerants to be managed throughout the lifecycle, but also allows these companies, and those service providers who work on these systems, to easily aggregate, assimilate and interpret data to make intelligent decisions regarding acquiring and managing these types of expensive assets.  Additionally, it will allow them to set and evaluate performance standards, service labor, warranty management and create compliant environmental reporting,” Atwood concluded.

TrakRef meets all EPA and individual state compliance standards for reporting Greenhouse Gas Emissions and is the only platform to provide one-click R3 uploading of reporting under California’s AB32 and Rule 1415 mandates.

TrakRef is a secure, cloud-based, SaaS platform that has comprehensive individualized applications for system owners, mechanical contractors, refrigerant reclaim companies & suppliers as well as the ability to connect all three key areas together to provide seamless and reliable information to properly understand and manage any mechanical system.
