Easy Ice, a US-based provider of full-service ice machine subscription solutions, has acquired the ice machine division of San Diego Ice Company (SDIC), a family-owned business.
This follows Easy Ice’s acquisition of Cube Aire late last year.
Darren Boruff, chief acquisitions officer at Easy Ice, said: “I am extremely excited to expand our platform in southern California with such an established company. San Diego Ice Company has offered great products and wonderful service since 1983, and we’re excited to carry on that tradition.”
SDIC will now focus exclusively on ice manufacturing and delivery, merchandising and carving. The company says that employees and customers affected by the acquisition can expect a smooth transition to Easy Ice.
Anthony Toma, VP and director of Operations at SDIC, commented: “It has been a pleasure working with long-time friend Darren Boruff of Easy Ice. His expertise in the field of commercial ice machines has been invaluable in helping us meet our business needs.”
He added: “We look forward to continuing our partnership in the future, and we trust that Easy Ice is the right company to take over a 40-year-old legacy that started with my father Sabah Toma”.
Further details of the transaction were not disclosed.
