Artic Temp, Inc. was founded in 1984 in Prague, OK, by Calvin Gatlin when he purchased the assets of a bankrupt cooler company in Oklahoma City. He relocated to Prague and began manufacturing, delivering and installing walk-in coolers and freezers. The company manufactures food service equipment, prefabricated refrigerated buildings, and refrigeration equipment.
In 2017, the family-owned company was purchased by Imperial Brown, one of the leading manufacturers of walk-in coolers and freezers in the world. The purchase gave Imperial Brown manufacturing operations on both U.S. coasts, as well as in the Heartland, ensuring efficiency and savings for customers.
