Leer started manufacturing Ice Merchandisers in 1952 and since then, we’ve offered three different refrigerants. Technology and global environmental awareness have enabled the introduction of a much-improved refrigerant. The newest is called “R290” and it’s the eco-friendly refrigerant of the future. It will be the fourth one we’ve used as a business and we happy to add such a superior refrigerant to our current offerings.
Selling ice has always been a person-to-person transaction. On a sunny and 85F Saturday afternoon, a customer walks into a retail store, checks out with the cashier, heads back outside, and grabs their ice out of the loaded ice merchandiser in front of the store. Simple, straight-forward, and traditional. But times are changing. Luckily, the self-checkout lane for ice exists. Today, the consumer can avoid all person-to-person interaction by using a Leer Ice Vending Machine!
