“This accomplishment underscores Polar King’s unwavering commitment to maintaining rigorous product quality and construction standards,” says Kevin Wilson, Director of Refrigeration, Engineering, and Research and Development at Polar King. He adds, “This is the second consecutive year that a class of Polar King employees has achieved NATE certification through the Harris Products Group.”

According to Wilson, this certification equips the team with the precise skills required to ensure adherence of all Polar King equipment and services to the exacting standards of superior brazing—a pivotal process that seamlessly unites two metals. This training is particularly crucial, given the “Perfect Flame” advanced techniques effectively prevent refrigeration leaks, a common challenge associated with conventional brazing methods.

About Polar King International 

The introduction of the Polar King outdoor walk-in freezer into the food service industry was the result of three generations of walk-in refrigeration technology and experience. Polar King’s fiberglass, one-piece walk-in cooler is the natural evolution of the walk-in cold storage industry from the conventional metal panel constructed unit. In early 1982, Polar King began operations by constructing and shipping walk-ins from a modest 12,000 sq. ft. facility in New Haven, Indiana. As demand grew for outdoor fiberglass commercial walk-in coolers and commercial walk-in freezers, production was moved to a 251,200 sq. ft. facility located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. For 40 years, Polar King has provided thousands of walk-ins to single-unit operators, chain restaurants, schools, health care facilities, government agencies, and many other industries requiring dependable outdoor walk-in refrigeration.
