Arctic Glacier expands in Midwest with acquisition of Superior Ice Co.

Arctic Glacier LLC, a Montclair-based producer and distributor of packaged ice products, announced on Friday it has acquired Linton, Indiana-based Superior Ice Co. Inc.

“With Arctic Glacier’s recent acquisition of Cosner Ice in Indiana, the merging of the two businesses made perfect sense. The timing of this deal worked out well for myself and my partners, and we are happy to be transitioning our business to a first-class organization, Blaine Lannan, president of Superior Ice, said.

The acquisition will help strengthen Arctic’s expanding presence in the Midwest, it said. This is the company’s eighth acquisition in the last year.

“Superior Ice has been highly regarded over the years for their dedicated team, quality service and customer support. This transaction greatly increases our service capacity in Indiana and expands our delivery footprint allowing us to reach even more customers. We’re very excited to continue to grow our business in the Midwestern United States.” Richard Wyckoff, CEO of Arctic, said.
