The story behind Tippmann Affiliated Group dates back to the 1950’s and a small engineering and contracting firm known simply as Tippmann Engineering. As one of 16 children and an active participant in the family business, Vincent P. Tippmann Sr. began seeking his own contracting ventures that ultimately led to the creation of Interstate Cold Storage in 1973, in New Haven, IN.
With the boom of the frozen food industry and the corresponding national distribution, Interstate Cold Storage continued its work as a construction contractor and grew its own operation to 5 Midwest locations and 22,000,000 ft3 of refrigerated warehouse space. Along the way, during this time of rapid expansion, new companies Polar King and Sparkling Party Ice were created and began paving the way for what later came to be known as Tippmann Affiliated Group.
As it stands today, Tippmann Affiliated Group remains a family owned organization with a diversified group of business segments throughout North America and around the world. Headquartered in Fort Wayne, IN, Tippmann Affiliated Group operates its main campus on 75 acres and 810,000 sq/ft. of manufacturing and office space.
From patented food service equipment to high volume manufacturing and warehousing, Tippmann Affiliated Group remains committed to providing high quality products and exceptional customer service.
