Scotsman is the world’s leading ice machine manufacturer for one basic reason. We understand, better than any other company, the critical importance of ice to any number of businesses.

From hotels, restaurants, bars, supermarkets and fast-food outlets, to hospitals, laboratories, fisheries and food processing facilities, Scotsman machines play a crucial role in the success of each operation. With a reliable supply of cubes, flake, superflake, scale, nugget, and gourmet ice, in quantities that range from one cube at a time to 10 tons of ice a day, Scotsman is clearly the Ice The World Demands™.

Scotsman Ice Systems pioneered the development of affordable, reliable ice-making machines in the 1950s. Over a half a century of research, innovation and superior customer service later, we remain the largest manufacturer of ice machines in the world with distributors and authorised service agents in over 100 countries. Today there are more than a million Scotsman ice machines at work around the world.

Scotsman XSafe

During the 2020 world pandemic, Scotsman launched XSafe.

XSafe is a totally natural sanitation system which is fully integrated inside the ice machine. It operates automatically 24 hours a day 7 days a week to keep your ice making equipment clean and safe. The system destroys over 99% of known viruses and bacteria (including corona-viruses), and substantially reduces the formation of mould, mildew, yeast and slime within the machine preventing unpleasant odours from occurring.
