Reinventing An Industry
Partner with the ice & water vending leader
We’ve taken one of life’s essentials – and made it better.™
Prior to 2003, the retail ice industry was frozen in place, inefficiently distributing a hard and chunky bagged product that was touched by too many hands. Consumers had to break up the ice, usually by dropping the bags in store parking lots. IHA revolutionized the industry in 2003 by combining superior manufacturing, advanced engineering, and innovative technology to provide high quality ice direct to consumers at wholesale pricing. It was a trifecta for consumers: better quality, lower price, and greater convenience. The retail ice industry was forever changed.
