We Are Family

We have a new member of the Polar family - welcome Damion! 

But he's no stranger to his new boss, our operations manager, Rita... she's his aunt!

Rita and her nephew, Damion

Polar is a small family-owned and operated business, and we're all just one big, happy family.

PS: Check out the factory mission, now hanging above the shipping station!

Happy Boss's Day!

There are a lot of great benefits to working at Polar. 

An unlimited supply of ice packs... 
all-you-can-eat tomatoes in the summertime... 
"Rita's" fried chicken and cake on your birthday... 

But the best part of the job is working for a great boss! 

(A coffee mug just isn't enough...)

Hello from Northern California

Message from Bill Graessle, Polar President and CEO: 

This was a great summer and a successful one for Polar. We are grateful to all our friends and customers for your support and good words. The positive testimonials on our cooling and therapy products have been plentiful and uplifting. All of us at the Polar factory and office appreciate them. We also received a few that encouraged us to be better! Those are appreciated too.

"There are two ways to live your life, one is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." - Albert Einstein

Enjoy a cool and beautiful fall.

Hello from Northern California!

After a busy summer, Bill and Rose are taking a break to enjoy the beauty of the coastal redwoods and wine country between San Francisco and the Oregon border. Looks like they're having a great time. See you next week, boss!
