059 - Refrigerated Vans for Sale

In the year 1938, Harry Werner, a trucking executive in Minneapolis, shared his complaints to a man named ‘Joseph Numero’ while they were enjoying playing a game of golf. Werner was having problems with the large profits his company was losing. He further explained to Numero that due to the scorching weather, his company’s product deliveries became very complicated and more costly.

Their simple conversation led to a partnership that brought significant developments in many industries today. Werner lent his trailer to Numero after one of them thought that refrigerated trailers could be a possible solution. The latter, a movie theatre sound systems manufacturer, made his mechanics work their expertise on the project.

By the year 1941, the two had patented their refrigeration trailer with shock resistant features. After successfully launching their invention, Numero quit his business and formed the U.S. Thermo Control Company. The company was able to profit from special contracts with the military of United States.  Today, the company is identified as ‘Thermo King’.

About Rob Ward

I've been working in the refrigerated vehicle industry from the age of 19, and founded Glacier Vehicles when I was 27. Did my starting the business come from the love of white vans? Let's be honest, no(!) but I am a massive foodie, and our refrigerated vehicles allow manufacturers to deliver their produce and ingredients to some of the UK's most prestigious restaurants and food producers, where amazing culinary delights are conceived - a good enough reason for the birth of Glacier Vehicles I'd say! Foodies unite!
