Manitowoc Ice was founded in 1902 as a shipbuilding firm but since that time, they have grown and diversified. Today they are a leader in the commercial ice machine industry. In its 360,000 square foot Wisconsin facility, Manitowoc manufactures a complete ice machine product line with 200+ models ranging in ice-making capacities from 65 to 3,380 pounds per day. This top-quality equipment produces ice for drinks and food preparation in restaurants, catering establishments and hotels across the nation.
They have a variety of models in their product line, such as undercounter ice machines, water filtration systems, ice machine head and bin combos, ice dispensers, and models that produce dice cubes, half-dice cubes, nugget and flake ice, such as the recently announced Koolaire Budget Series and their new NEO Series undercounter units. The NEO Series features a variety of ice types in both air and water cooled models, including air cooled half dice machines in the following sizes: NEO 140, NEO 190, NEO 240, and NEO 310.
This ice machine was perfect for our church. the compact size fit perfectly in our kitchen without taking up too much space. I really like the half dice ice as it is easier to fill the cups with the smaller pieces instead of the full cube. The ice production speed is impressive. We have not ran out of ice yet.
