Marquette, MI, May 8, 2013 — Today Easy Ice, LLC announced an exclusive sales and service partnership with Ecolab’s Equipment Care Division.  Under the terms of this partnership, Ecolab will offer the Easy Ice Subscription Program to it’s customers throughout all major markets in North America.

“Our partnership with Easy Ice enhances Equipment Care’s end-to-end solutions,” says Mike Goede, Vice President of Sales & Service with Ecolab Equipment Care.  “Ecolab customers appreciate innovative business solutions that solve specific pain points, and the Easy Ice program does just that.”

Whether it’s a restaurant, hotel, manufacturing plant, hospital, or a golf course, competitive pressures require business owners to focus on what makes them different.  Ice is a commodity, which doesn’t justify the capital expense and distractions that come with owning and operating an ice machine.

“That is why Easy Ice and Ecolab have teamed up to deliver a comprehensive ice machine solution,” says John Mahlmeister, Easy Ice co-founder and CMO.  “By providing a guaranteed supply of ice at an affordable and predicable cost, Easy Ice enables business owners to re-deploy thousands of dollars and tens of hours in areas that create differentiation and drive success.”
