Manitowoc originated as a shipbuilding and ship-repair business in Manitowoc, Wisconsin in 1902. Their specialties have diversified plenty since then— in the 1920s they entered the lattice-boom crane business before moving into commercial refrigeration equipment manufacturing. Later, in the 1950s, the company began building a line of refrigerated display cases for use in supermarkets. It wasn’t long before Manitowoc pioneered commercial ice machines, increasing their product range to also include walk-in refrigerators and beverage dispensers. Today Manitowoc is a market share leader in restaurant equipment. Manitowoc now supplies restaurants, convenience stores, hotels and other institutions worldwide. Manitowoc is also the parent company of a variety of great food service brands including Frymaster, with manufacturing and distribution centers on three continents.

We offer ice machines that produce a variety of ice types, the most popular being half-dice or whole-dice ice cubes. Cubes melt slowly to optimize beverages such as mixed drinks and sodas. Flaker machines produce small, hard bits of ice that mold to any shape and are ideal for salad bars and produce or seafood displays. When choosing, keep in mind that your ice usage needs will vary seasonally, as demand for iced beverages will increase during warmer months. Account for this by choosing a model that is large enough to handle your peak usage. Know that the industry is turning to air-cooled ice machines, as they are more environmentally friendly than water-cooled machines and have lower upfront and operating costs.
