About Getchell Bros. Inc
Cold storage. A 4th generation family, veteran owned and operated ice company. Starting in the spring of 1888, two young brothers began harvesting ice along the Penobscot river. Fast forward 130 years, ice making has been continuously upgraded with modern and efficient manufacturing. Although we are no longer along the water, the new modern technology makes it easier to get our premium, high quality ice to our customers faster than ever before.
Getchell Brothers strives to provide exceptional services while delivering a clean and pure ice product that can be found in supermarkets, convenience stores, drug stores, restaurants, bakeries and at many special events throughout New England.
In the fall of 2016 a 54,000 square foot warehouse on 65 Coffey Street in Bangor, Maine was purchased to become the new location of ice production and storage. This is the first time in the Bangor/Brewer history that ice making is no longer on or beside the Penobscot River or Kenduskeag Stream. The Brewer plant was showing its age and investment was needed to allow for future demand and modern technology.
Ice production began at the new location in Bangor during the spring of 2017. The new plant is modern, spacious and open. 6 loading docks and ample parking provide much needed space for the trucks and drivers. The equipment is energy efficient and includes tube ice making machines which can produce 240,000 pounds of ice per day.
The equipment is controlled by “touch screen” capability. Our 4 production lines can bag 120 tons of ice in 7 hours which is stacked on pallets by a robot. The size of the warehouse provided the option to enter into the Cold Storage business with a 2000 pallet capacity freezer. Although we miss being along the water, the new modern technology makes it easier to get our premium high quality ice to our customers faster than ever before and as they have come to expect since 1888.
