Arctic Glacier is a leading manufacturer and distributor of premium
quality packaged ice products, primarily under the brand name Arctic
Premium Ice. We are the largest producer of packaged ice in Canada and
are among the largest producers in the United States, serving over
75,000 retail, commercial and industrial customer locations throughout
six provinces in Canada and nineteen states in the northeastern, central
and western United States.
We have grown significantly since our start in 1996, primarily through an
aggressive acquisition strategy in the highly fragmented ice production and
distribution industry. We have acquired 78 packaged ice businesses in Canada and
the United States to date at a cost of almost US$475 million. These
geographically contiguous acquisitions have established our critical mass,
allowing us to improve financial results by leveraging our investments in
infrastructure and brand development. We are now the largest producer and
distributor of packaged ice in each of the markets that we operate.
We currently operate 39 production and 48 distribution facilities, and employ
more than 1,100 people year-round. Our labor force increases to more than 2,400
employees during the summer to meet the increased seasonal increases in demand
for our products. Our current production capacity is approximately 11,000 tons
of ice per day.
We also license our trade names and proprietary technology to independently
owned companies in Canada and the United States under franchise and license
Arctic Glacier Canada Inc. and Arctic Glacier U.S.A., Inc, are wholly owned
subsidiaries of Arctic Glacier Holdings, Inc.
Our corporate headquarters are located at 625 Henry Avenue, Winnipeg,
