By now ice sales have probably came to a screeching halt. It seems like just yesterday the phone was ringing off the hook with customers in need of MORE ICE!!! Now that the busy summer has come to an end, it is time to re-group and conduct inspections of all your equipment in order to determine what preventative maintenance (PM) will be necessary before next season.
I recently visited an AIS client who utilizes our printed roll film. During the visit I noticed that the customer’s ice bag roll film inventory consisted of product manufactured within the last three months, mixed with product produced about a year ago and even product manufactured in 2005. I asked why they did not use FIFO (first-in-first-out) inventory management.
I’m into my third year with the Automatic ICE™ Systems Team, and I couldn’t be more pleased. It is truly a pleasure to work with the most dedicated and qualified people in the packaged ice industry supply side. I had no idea that this level of professional services was available to packaged icemen prior to coming on board here.

It is undeniable that the success of the Walmart Corporation is a story of the American Dream. An enterprising, hardworking man of little means has an idea of doing things a little different.
