Right Product. Right Place. Right Temperature. Since 1962.

Henry Uihlein, Sr. founded U-Line Corporation in 1962 as an outgrowth of Ben-Hur Freezers. Henry developed and patented the first undercounter residential ice maker, selling door-to-door. While our products have evolved over the last 6 decades, one thing remains the same – U-Line is proudly rooted in Midwest USA. Our region's deep-rooted values of hard work, resilience, and community are the very principles that drive our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

Leaders in Innovation

From U-Line’s early days of introducing America to the first undercounter ice maker and first undercounter wine refrigerator to current industry exclusive features like the highest nugget ice machine production and full-depth lower interiors on our 5 class products – we are focused on continuing to provide the best premium modular ice making, refrigeration, and wine preservation in the industry.


Ahead of the Curve

We take pride in leading the industry often years ahead of governmental agency and energy requirement mandates, working closely with various domestic and global agencies such as DOE and AHAM to establish energy standards. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued over 50 patents to U-Line.
