Igloo can trace its roots back to 1947 when a metal working shop began producing metal water coolers for construction and other blue-collar workers.
In 1971, the official name of the manufacturing company was incorporated as Igloo.
Igloo coolers are still made in the USA, in a manufacturing plant located in Katy, Texas.
In September 2021, Igloo was acquired by a Swedish manufacturing company, Dometic Group, for $677 million.
In June 2022, Igloo released a special edition cooler featuring deceased rapper Tupac Shakur in honor of his birthday.
Igloo maintains a corporate office in Katy, Texas. It is unknown if headquarters will be moved after Dometic’s acquisition.
