U-Line Corporation Marks 50th Anniversary, Continues Focus On New Innovations in Built-In Undercounter Refrigeration and Preservation

 MILWAUKEE – January 23, 2012 – U-Line, the award-winning market leader in premium built-in undercounter ice making, refrigeration and wine preservation products, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year with a new line of modular undercounter refrigeration units that offer advanced technology, aesthetic elegance and seamless integration for use in today’s modern kitchens and lifestyles. U-Line has earned a solid reputation as the undercounter market leader by continuing to develop, manufacture and support the best undercounter refrigeration products on the market. 

U-Line is beginning its second half-century much like its first, with the introduction of the industry leading Modular 3000 Series, a new product line that marks a major evolutionary advancement in undercounter refrigeration. U-Line’s new Modular 3000 Series refrigeration units offer clean, modern design with adjustable doors, toe-kicks and concealed hinges for seamless integration into just about any cabinet design. The Modular 3000 Series features highly customizable temperature settings for storing meats and cheeses, produce, dry goods and even root vegetables at ideal temperatures for maximum preservation. Foods and beverages can now be conveniently placed where they’re used most. Fresh produce can be stored near the prep sink and dry goods near the oven; red, white or sparkling wine can be stored near the dining room at each varietal’s ideal temperature for maximum preservation and enjoyment. The Modular 3000 Series offers four distinct temperature settings for precise beverage refrigeration and maximum preservation. Water, soda, or white, red or sparkling wines can be stored at their ideal temperatures. A “quick chill” feature rapidly cools food and beverages to a desired setting for hosts who are short on preparation time. 

Founded 50 years ago, when Henry Uihlein, Sr. developed and patented the first automatic undercounter ice maker for residential use in1962, U-Line is now celebrating its third generation of family leadership. U-Line continues to be the leader in innovation, quality and value in the premium built-in undercounter market by creating products with exceptional design and functionality.
