WE MAKE REFRIGERATION SIMPLE
Integrated Marine Systems is the leader in marine refrigeration and we’re here to make it easy on you. We have the experience and know how to make refrigeration simple. When it comes to refrigeration, there is rarely a one size fits all solution. Here at IMS, we’ve been providing custom refrigeration solutions for the commercial fishing industry since 1989. We work with both large and small boat fishermen, seafood processors, and other industry stakeholders, to ensure optimum conditions for quality seafood through every step of the cold chain.
From Alaska and the West Coast, to the Gulf Coast and Northeast, we serve all major fishing sectors in the United States. We also serve select international markets. And all of our products are made right here in Washington state.
APPLICATIONS FOR INDUSTRY
Integrated Marine Systems is a refrigeration design and manufacturing company, providing top-quality chilling and freezing systems for commercial fishermen and seafood processors. If you catch or process salmon, crab, lobster, scallops, tuna, squid, cod, pollock, mackerel, oysters or shrimp on the East Coast, in the Gulf, on the West Coast, in Alaska, or internationally, we are there – doing our part to keep the cold chain intact from the point of harvest with our products and support. Because of our service, quality manufacturing and making refrigeration simple for our customers IMS is known to be the leader in the industry.
IMS FOR FISHERMEN
The fisherman is the first link in the cold chain. If you are chilling or freezing onboard for delivery to processors, you know that they pay higher prices for fish that has been handled carefully and chilled immediately. Or perhaps your decision is to use chilling or freezing onboard to sell direct to consumers and high-end retailers. In this case, you know that you can’t afford to disappoint that customer even once – your name is on the label and your reputation is on the line.
IMS FOR PROCESSORS
For many products, land-based processors are the second step in the cold chain. IMS refrigeration equipment fills critical production needs for the entire food processing industry – fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood and poultry. Refrigeration slows bacterial growth and bringing food products to low temperatures promptly extends shelf life. We are focused on the end goal – providing solutions that help deliver the highest possible quality product to consumers.
PRODUCTS FROM IMS
Commercial fishermen know that onboard refrigeration is the key to delivering quality product and earning higher prices for their catch. On land, seafood and food processors utilize refrigeration to ensure quality and strive to improve the efficiency of their plant operations. Keeping the cold chain intact from the point of harvest all the way to the consumer is critical. Integrated Marine Systems designs and manufactures chilling and freezing refrigeration products that share the characteristics of simplicity, ease of operation and dependability based on superior engineering and longer-lasting components.
PRODUCTS FOR CHILLING
Whether you’re a fisherman, tenderman or processor, we offer a variety of chilling solutions to meet your specific needs or the needs of your fleet. We build refrigerated sea water (RSW) units, live delivery systems, chillers, box chillers as well as combination chilling and freezing systems.
