History

Established in 1973, Interstate Cold Storage is a family owned public refrigerated warehouse company, headquartered in Fort Wayne, IN.


The company was originally founded by Vincent Tippmann, who now serves as company chairman. Mr. Tippmann’s experience includes over 40 years of practice in the refrigeration and heat transfer business. He is also credited with numerous industry related patents, many of which are used today by major corporations around the world.


Among IARW members, Interstate Cold Storage ranks among the largest 25 public cold storage warehousing companies in North America, with five locations and nearly 22,000,000 ft of refrigerated space.


At Interstate, we believe we’re not only in the cold storage warehousing business, but in the business of customer service. It is our goal to establish a partnership that creates a seamless transition within your supply chain. Our highly skilled staff is prepared to serve your company with overwhelming customer satisfaction and service.

In January of 2009, we welcomed the first member of our family's 4th generation of refrigeration experts to the Interstate team. We remain committed to our family values and look forward to the day our 5th generation can call Interstate Cold Storage their home too.
