Manufacturers of refrigerators for the home carefully monitor their image and care about the quality of the goods sold. Numerous developments collected over the years allow them to produce reliable and modern equipment at an affordable price.

Known since 1963, a large Ukrainian manufacturer of household appliances closes the TOP of the best companies. Until 2014, refrigerators produced under this brand were assembled in Donetsk, then the line was frozen. Since 2021, products have been assembled in China. The Nord company produces budget equipment and focuses on the economy class of buyers. If we take the latest of the released models, then in them the cost reduction is achieved due to savings on materials and modern technologies. However, the company is developing more modern and attractive in terms of design refrigerators with a tempered glass surface.
Household appliances sellers offer refrigerators:
domestic brands: Indesit, Biryusa, Pozis, Saratov, Smolensk (a subsidiary of the Belarusian Atlanta),
neighboring countries: Atlant, Snaige,
far abroad: Zanussi, AEG, Miele, Bosch, Whirlpool, Hansa, Liebherr, Electrolux, Beko and Vestel, Gorenje, Daewoo, LG, Samsung, etc.
Allegedly, we do not consider German brands Kaiser, Vestfrost (Danish?) at all, because German in them is only the sound of the name, but they are produced in Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria.
If the brand you saw in the store is completely unfamiliar to you, and you have never heard of such a refrigerator, then most likely the equipment was manufactured by order of the distribution network by one of the major manufacturers. As a rule, they are based on the models traditional for one or another famous brand with slight changes in appearance and a partial upgrade of production.
Obviously, the most reliable and high-quality refrigerators are made by those manufacturers who have been doing this for more than a dozen years and know everything about large household appliances. And even if production is transferred to another country (although this is not so clear from China). But in most cases, the technological process and equipment remain stable and only improve.
