Igloo Coolers - Keeping the World Cool since 1947
Igloo began life in 1947 as a small metalworking company with two employees. At that time Igloo produced metal water coolers designed to replace wooden drinking buckets used by construction workers, oilfield workers and longshoremen on the docks. By 1965 the Igloo cool box design had evolved to include an insulated, all plastic construction and these water coolers soon became the cooler of choice on work sites.
Through a series of joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, the igloo brand and company grew. By 1962 the company had grown to 73 employees and in that same year offered the first all plastic ice chests, which was initially sold only to beer manufacturers. In 1963, Oshman’s Sporting Goods in Houston, Texas became the first retailer to offer the plastic cooler to consumers, which was a resounding success and the rest as they say is history.
Now 850 employees strong, Igloo world headquarters’ is a 1.4 million square foot facility located in Katy, Texas. Offering hundreds of different products Igloo coolers and Igloo Cool Boxes are sold by more than 15,000 outlets in the US and around the world.
