New Monogram and CAFÉ brand refrigerators

Rushing is currently leading the startup of an assembly line at the plant that will produce a new lineup of fully integrated refrigerators with bottom freezers across the Monogram and CAFÉ brands. Available in both French and Single-Door configurations, these models sit flush with cabinetry and feature articulating hinges to create a high-end, modern look.
