We are back from NAFEM and had another great show! U.S.
Cooler released their new Vert-Ergo vertical handle at the show in Orlando. The handle was displayed in the “What’s Hot, What’s Cool” booth and gained positive feedback. U.S. Cooler’s new vertical handle design is the first vertical handle in the industry! The ergonomic behavior-friendly design provides increased leverage for a more natural and comfortable opening method. The heavy-duty commercial design and sleek finish make for an appealing look.
Starting in April 2017, all U.S. Cooler walk-in coolers and freezers will showcase the new Vert-Ergo handle (unless specified otherwise). By taking the user into account, the Vert-Ergo handle creates an easier, more comfortable pull method for opening walk-in doors.
Craig Industries has expanded! Craig Industries, parent company to U.S. Cooler, Enviro Buildings, WineKeep, Brew Cave, Eden Grow Rooms and WalkinCoolerParts.com, has added an additional warehouse facility to their campus. The new manufacturing facility adds over 30,000 square feet of manufacturing and storage capabilities. Delaware Street, the street in front of the office building, has been closed and made into a paved parking lot for employees. The Craig Industries Campus, located in Quincy, IL, now includes three manufacturing/storage facilities and one corporate office building.
The new building will house the refrigeration department as well as raw material storage. Three new shipping and receiving docks have been added in the new building making shipping more efficient. The additional space has allowed a new dedicated parts department for the rapidly growing parts business. WalkinCoolerParts.com now has its own department and space to stock more parts and models. The additional building provides the company with the needed space for future growth.

Pennsylvania – The state of Pennsylvania is undergoing a dramatic change on how beer is sold to consumers in the state. Among other things, the new bill that will go into effect January 14 will allow single-bottle, six-pack, mix-and-match six pack and growler sales at beer distributors. Thus being a dramatic change from how beer is sold today, beer distributors will be renovating their displays to accommodate the single, six-pack and growler beer products. Retailers will need to act fast to accommodate this additional cold storage space before January 14.
Brew Cave by U.S. Cooler specializes in beer storage and can help facilitate in the design process for new cold storage display coolers. Many beer distributors will be expanding their current walk-in cold storage space and will have limited options for additional display. Brew Cave focuses on custom walk-in coolers and display coolers that can fit most any design specification. From growler coolers to keg warehouses to display coolers, Brew Cave specializes in any type of beer storage.
Need assistance in designing and planning for these changes? Brew Cave by U.S. Cooler is ready to assist merchants in designing their new cold storage space to display these new products. Although Brew Cave by U.S. Cooler does not sell direct to beer distributors, a factory sales representative is located in Pennsylvania and available to facilitate with any cold storage needs.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at U.S. Cooler! We give thanks for our employees, customers, business partners and community, which we are exceptionally grateful for. Wishing you and your family the warmest of blessings this Thanksgiving.
