The SIE is a regional trade association representing ICE manufacturers throughout the southeast and suppliers throughout the USA and Canada. The SIE was founded in 1889 because businessmen in the ice industry decided that mutual opportunities and problems could be effectively dealt with through cooperation. This philosophy of cooperation continues today and is doubly important because of increased government activity in the business community. Membership in the SIE is totally voluntary, but each individual member is committed to the goal or providing quality Ice products to the consuming public.
The SOUTHERN ICE EXCHANGE is the oldest trade association in our industry. Its members are among the best established and most respected Ice Men and Women in the country.
