Nine decades of
ice innovation

Founded in 1932, Empire Cooler has evolved into one of the nation’s oldest and largest commercial ice-machine leasing companies. For nine decades, Empire Cooler has established a reputation for excellence and a highly successful track record with our customers.

Much of this growth is thanks to the leadership of our CEO, Richard “Dick” Klaskin. He began his career with Empire Cooler as an equipment salesman in 1960 before working his way up through the ranks, and eventually becoming our CEO. Dick continues to be an important influence on our company’s values and high standards in all that we do.
