Iceman Corporation

Expanding business from industrial ice machines to snowmaking machines for ski resorts using our unique technology

We manufacture ice-making systems based on unique technology, such as various ice machines, automatic ice discharge and storage systems, and automatic ice vending systems. Make-to-order production accounts for a great percentage of our sales. We can flexibly meet orders for special-use products using basic technology. Around 2013, we began branching out to new fields, such as snowmaking machines and seawater slurry ice making machines. Particularly for ski resorts, we could successfully make authentic-looking snow. The conventional ice-making method is to bring water into contact with the metal surface of a heat exchanger.  Our new concepts, such as "contact by spraying" and "freezing without metal contact," improved the efficiency several times.


Other presentation

[Company strength]
We have been extending our technology to meet field requests for agricultural and fishery products, food processing, ice thermal storage, chemical plants and leisure facilities. By utilizing these technologies, we are aiming at further improving performance and quality through innovative design and machining. In 2013, we constructed a new company building to strengthen our facilities. We have established a research and production system and are making efforts to improve customer satisfaction.

[Business description]
Our company manufactures various industrial ice machines, automatic ice discharge and storage systems, and automatic ice vending systems. Our technological base allows us to flexibly meet the needs and design requirements for special uses and to have many products on order. We began developing snowmaking machines and seawater slurry ice machines in 2013. With these products, we are expanding our business to new fields.

Manufacture of industrial ice machines

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our company has not only improved the performance of conventional ice machines but also developed snowmaking machines and other products based on new concepts to attract new consumers. Our break-through technologies have enabled the impossible to become reality, such as making slurry ice by generating ice crystals in seawater. Conventional ice-making methods only use heat exchange with water in contact with a metal surface.  Our new concepts, such as "contact by spraying" and "freezing without metal contact," improved the efficiency several times over and can produce something similar to snow. Such new ideas were only previously available as an imagination.

[Representative's message]
Since our establishment in 1956, we have been manufacturing and installing very many industrial ice machines and automatic ice discharge and storage systems suitable for every kind of industry. As a result, we have accumulated a lot of achievements and are reliable. We have been expanding our business to the handling of ice and the storage of cold heat, such as ice storage, weighing & transport, long-distance pneumatic transport and automatic switching of transport lines. We aim to increase our technical skills to solve the critical subject of providing users with efficient facilities by accumulating unique technologies.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Tokyo Sangyo Co., Ltd. is our agency for overseas expansion because they have sites outside Japan. Through Tokyo Sangyo, we are using the local corporations of Ishida Co., Ltd. as our sales sites.

[Market share/Ranking]
There are no other ice-making systems based on the concepts of "contact by spraying" and "freezing without metal contact."
