Polar Leasing breaks ground in Florida

May 9, 2024
Provider of refrigerated rental units expands reach across Southeast U.S. with new Sumterville location.

Polar Leasing Company, a provider of electric ground-resting outdoor walk-in freezers and refrigerated rental units, is growing operations with a new facility in Sumterville, Florida.

The new facility, the company’s first outside its Fort Wayne, Indiana, headquarters, is wholly owned and managed by Polar Leasing, according to Bart Tippmann, company president.

“This is truly a momentous step forward in Polar Leasing’s growth trajectory,” he said in a news release.

“The launch of our Sumterville facility underscores our ongoing commitment to enhancing proximity to customers nationwide. We’re enthusiastic about the opportunities this investment brings to better cater to the evolving needs of businesses in Florida and neighboring states, ensuring they have access to dependable and efficient cold storage solutions.”

Polar Leasing plans to begin delivering a fleet of walk-in refrigerator and freezer units to the region in the upcoming months. Florida was selected as an ideal location for a second facility based on the “robust” sales activity in the region, Tippmann added.

Polar Leasing units are designed for maximum efficiency in a sanitary environment, the company said. Every rental walk-in unit is American made, arrives preassembled, and only requires a simple electric hookup. All units have a 100% seamless fiberglass interior and exterior that ensures internal components remain independent of external temperatures, even in the toughest weather conditions.
