Since 1948 Follett has led the industry in manufacturing high quality, advanced ice machines, ice and water dispensers and ice storage bins for the global foodservice and healthcare industries. The company is dedicated to providing the most customer-oriented service by offering outstanding innovation and design excellence to meet the specific needs of all customers. Follett prides themselves on manufacturing equipment that is known for quality construction, durability and longevity.
The Follett Ice Corporation has been making ice makers, ice storage bins, and ice and water dispensers for quite a while. Since 1948, the founder of the company, Roy Follett, decided there was an opening in the market for ice dispensing and storing products. Follett now has manufacturing plants around the world and continues to be a privately held, family run company; Steve Follett, Roy’s grandson became CEO in 1994. Follett’s dedication to ice and water dispensers is clearer than ever. You can find their products throughout the world and in a variety of environments such as stadiums, restaurants, casinos, hospitals, schools, and more.
The Nugget Ice You Crave
Follett is especially known for their nugget-type ice dispensers. You can see why when you look at their freestanding nugget ice and water dispensers. Some of these freestanding dispensers can produce as much as 125 pounds of nugget shaped ice, as well as store some of the ice for later use. These freestanding dispensers are easy to clean in part due to their stainless steel exterior. Additionally, the drainless design helps keep upkeep and maintenance simple as well. The attractive blue LED lighting creates a soft glow for anyone using the dispenser.
Undercounter & Built-In Ice Machines
Undercounter units are also available from Follett. These dispensers can produce large amounts of ice and water, just like the freestanding appliances. These units also come with an impressive two-year standard warranty on parts and labor (5 years for compressor). An internal filter and antimicrobial protection help keep the dispensed ice and water clean, cold, and pure.
It’s not just these freestanding and undercounter units that have all of the attractive features. Follett also makes smaller, countertop ice and water dispensers. These are great for environments where a full-sized freestanding or undercounter unit might not fit. These smaller, countertop dispensers are more accessible in a way, since they can simply fit on a kitchen countertop. What’s more, they’re still able to produce over 100 pounds of ice in a single day. A Follett countertop dispenser comes in at under 20 inches high, making them available to be installed in a number of cramped environments.
Follett deals in ice seriously, so they don’t just make ice and water dispensers. Follett also makes undercounter icemakers that work as commercial units. These are different from simple dispensers that can’t produce as much ice in a single day. But these commercial ice machines from Follett can make as much as 400 pounds of ice a day. Some of these machines make flake ice, which is very efficient in terms of cooling down beverages, but are also popular for fish, fruit, or vegetable displays. Front ventilated undercounter ice machines like this need water filter replacements to operate at maximum efficiency, and Follett supplies these too. A water filer from Follett may be useable in a number of different Follett machines, so with a little bit of research it’s easy to find the proper filter for your appliance.
Industry Leading Products & Values
Using a business model that integrates their ideals of honesty, integrity, and respect, Follett strives to provide customers with both quality products and a comfortable purchasing experiences. While they may boast that their specialty is in ice and water dispensers, they also have an impressive array of other ice making products and filter systems to choose from. Take a look at some of Follett’s selection today and discover the ice and water dispenser brand that has been innovating in the industry since 1948.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
