Ice Hot Concepts
Get the professional edge

Services for the Skating Community by Skating Professionals….!

We have over 50 yrs. of combined experience in all aspects of the ice arena industry. We are a full-service business to our Retail and Commercial customers. Our associates are on the "cutting edge" of the industry, while having the ability to bring experience and knowledge of the history of how this industry and the ice sports have evolved over time. We work with each client individually to assess their needs and tailor a plan that works for them. We are not a "cookie cutter" firm. Our quest to be the best at what we do and help you to be too, drives us to continually investigate new technologies and adapt where necessary. While you will get the individual attention that you expect from a small firm, we have an international network and resources to get you what you need.
