75 Years of Coolness

75 Years of Coolness

Posted by Matt C on 1st Jun 2022

2022 marks the 75th birthday of Igloo! Starting out as a metalworking shop delivering fresh cold water to Texas workers in the field in 1947, to inventing the Playmate to becoming America's and indeed the worlds most recognizable brand of ice chests, the Igloo story spans 75 years of delivering coolness to the world… here is a snapshot of the fun in under 3 minutes:

Did you know that Igloo were the brand to invent all those coolers? You may be surprised to learn that one out of every three households in the USA has an Igloo in their garage - a trend that is now spreading into UK households and across the globe!

Igloo has become the brand of choice for major sporting organisations and events across the UK, and is a staple of culture in Hollywood movies!

Of course, Igloo wouldn’t have made it these 75 years or be nearly as cool without our new and longstanding fans, like you, who work hard and play harder. Igloo are endlessly grateful for you! You’ve shaped Igloo into the brand we hope you’re proud to use and often reminisce about. All the “I’ve had my Igloo since forever” stories we see out there are our favourites.

We hope you’ll keep them comin’. And now, cheers to the next 75!
