Easy Ice, a national provider of commercial ice machine subscriptions, completed its most recent acquisition of Derby Ice Company in Lufkin, TX. Derby Ice Company has been serving the regional area for almost five decades: selling, leasing and servicing commercial ice machines.
A longtime ice machine service provider in the Lone Star State, Easy Ice took a significant piece of its rental scene over in 2020, when it acquired Mission Restaurant Supply’s leasing division. The company expects to seamlessly integrate Derby’s customers into its Texas operations.
“I’m excited to grow the business in one of our biggest markets, and Derby Ice is the right type of company for us to integrate,” Darren Boruff, chief acquisitions officer at Easy Ice, said. “They have been offering superior customer service and ice equipment solutions for over 50 years, and I look forward to our future together.”
Since its founding in 2009, Easy Ice has become the largest commercial ice machine rental company in the U.S., with more than 30,000 ice machines currently under management across 47 states. The company continues to aggressively pursue growth through both its acquisition strategy and direct subscription deals.
