PKM increases Midwest presence

I69 Trailer Center in Indiana latest dealer to add Polar King Mobile’s ‘affordable, small refrigerated trailer’ to its offerings

Polar King Mobile (PKM) refrigerated trailer units now will be sold in Indiana through the company’s newest dealer, I69 Trailer Center.

PKM, part of the Polar King family of companies, services North America through a network of dealerships, filling a previous marketplace gap by providing “the first affordable, small refrigerated trailer solution” of its kind, according to the company.

“This partnership with I69 Trailer Center gives Polar King Mobile the ability to bring our state-of-the-art products to a broader Midwest customer base,” said Christian Aitken, PKM executive vice president. “Over the nearly two decades I69 Trailer Center has been in business, its first-class staff has built a reputation for quality and service.

“We are proud to have them on the Polar King Mobile team.”

PKM provides economical 8- to 16-foot refrigerated trailers. The company’s 110-volt (15 AMP) refrigerated trailers are designed and engineered specifically for outdoor and over-the-road use. The PKM 100% seamless fiberglass design provides a continuous surface with rounded insulated corners to promote a sanitary environment.

With durable, NSF-approved non-slip flooring systems, PKM units reduce slip and fall hazards, the company said. The completely seamless unit can be cleaned quickly and easily with a hose, without the risk of damage to the insulation. According to Polar King Mobile, the unit will look factory new with regular care and cleaning.

“This will truly be a mutually-beneficial partnership,” said Kevin Bermes, I69 Trailer Center general manager. “Polar King presents a great opportunity for I69 Trailer Center to fill the need for mobile cooling and freezing in response to delivery service changes in the market.”

PKM does not sell direct to the public.

The company’s goal is to create a national network of value-added resellers by recruiting the best trailer distributors from the North American Trailer Dealers Association. “We believe this is the best strategy to deliver superior products and build strong relationships on both a regional and national level,” Aitken said.
