Vivco Ice adds Ice-O-Matic and Pearl Ice to its Ice Machine Line Up

The Ice-O-Matic's Pearl Ice Technology is designed to create softer ice that is chewable and longer lasting. This high quality ice can boost customer satisfaction and sales for restaurants, convenience stores and other retail and business outlets.

St. Louis, MO (September 24, 2012) - Vivco Ice, a nationwide provider of ice machines for industrial, commercial and home use, announced the addition of Ice-O-Matic ice machines to its current multi-channel depth of ice industry products.

This new addition from Ice-O-Matic adds greater range to the large variety of ice machines currently offered from Vivco. In addition to the ice machines, Vivco now carries Ice-O-Matic's cubers, flakers, storage bins, dispensers and water filters.

"Ice-O-Matic has been an innovator in creating new ice machine technologies," said Mike Minor, President of Vivco Ice since 1999. "We pride ourselves in our extensive application knowledge to fulfill requests from home use to industrial ice plants worldwide and the addition of the Ice-O-Matic line will help us continue to service our customers today and tomorrow."

Unique to Ice-O-Matic is their Pearl Ice technology that enhances the beverage enjoyment experience. Pearl Ice's unique shape and size dispenses smoothly, blends quickly and displaces liquid better than cubes. The Ico-O-Matic's Pearl Ice is soft, chewable and longer lasting for drinks, smoothies and other beverages. And the feedback cannot be better: Pearl Ice leads to increased customer satisfaction and profits, making this type of ice ideal in restaurants, convenience stores and healthcare applications.
