ZIEGRA's ice age began more than 60 years ago

The company ZIEGRA was founded as a distribution and service company for ice machines imported from the USA. It began as a classical general importer for these machines, which were unknown in Germany at the time: In the first year one machine was purchased, in the second year two, and from there it took off.
The first German machines, developed by ZIEGRA, were constructed by DWM-Copeland.
The von Rohr family joined the company. Expansion of machine sizes to up to 4,000 kg daily output. At the lower range, laboratory ice machines with an output of 30kg were introduced, and to date they are still the smallest ice machines in the world.
