The introduction of the Polar King outdoor walk-in freezer into the foodservice industry is the result of three generations of walk-in refrigeration technology and experience. Polar King’s fiberglass, one-piece walk-in cooler was 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 our current 251,200 sq/ft. facility located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. For nearly 40 years, Polar King has provided thousands to single unit operators, chain restaurants, schools, health care facilities, government agencies and many other industries requiring dependable outdoor walk-in refrigeration.
We take great pride in being a family owned company, offering exceptional products and customer service. The size of our company has grown, but our commitment to providing an outstanding customer experience remains unchanged. In fact, we still answer every phone call with a real person and never use automated e-mail responses. Our constant mission to aid the prevention of food spoilage provides our customers with an essential ingredient necessary to ensure their success in the marketplace.
Polar King’s mission is to provide a premium outdoor walk-in refrigeration structure, providing our customers with efficient operation and the industry’s lowest lifetime cost of ownership. In doing our part to reduce food waste, by way of temperature controlled preservation, we’re continuing our passion to positively impact the global food chain.
