About North Star Ice

North Star Ice prides themselves on manufacturing American-made equipment that can last for a lifetime, saving you money and hassle in the long run. North Star began as “Halibut Liver Oil Producers” in WWII, when the company was among the largest producers of Vitamin A in the country. In 1945, they developed a cold storage facility to help with processing cod liver, using block ice to keep the product cool. In 1949, they worked to develop a new ice maker that could produce sub-cooled and dry “flake ice” since it cooled the product better. This led to the formation of North Star Ice Equipment Corporation in 1951. They sold 13 flake ice machines within the first year, a figure which tripled within five years. Throughout the years, their product lineup has grown, reaching the impressive size it is today.

Types of Ice Makers from North Star Ice

We can help you select and install one of the many ice makers from North Star Ice. They offer the Cascade Series flake ice makers, regular flake ice makers, and liquid ice makers. The Cascade Series is ideal for industrial applications due to its commercial-grade and durable nature. The flake ice makers are more economical, but just as dependable with high versatility and low-maintenance, wear, and stress. The North Star Ice liquid ice makers produce “slurry,” or liquid ice that you can pump.

Ice Storage and Delivery

In addition to ice makers, we also offer the North Star Ice storage systems. These systems can store very large quantities of ice and deliver them with the touch of a button. They are made to last and installation is straightforward, so we can complete it in a timely manner. If you need, we can also help you with a North Star Ice delivery system to send the ice around your facility.
