The history of IceKing

1995

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Adrian, Robert and Annabelle GiIIman estabIish the King brand at our original D.A.D premises in Woodrow Way, GIoucester, a 7,000 sq ft warehouse. Iceking is one arm of this brand.

The first Iceking refrigeration range consists of chest freezers and four undercounter units. The initiaI order for 3,500 units was a big one but they are confident!
