Glacier Bay develops and markets innovative, energy-saving technologies. A year after its founding, it introduced the world's first refrigerator to use the non-ozone depleting refrigerant HFC-134a, now used in long-distance cruising sailboats. Since then, Glacier Bay has developed technologies in high-efficiency, Freon-free, direct current-powered air conditioning systems and advanced thermal and acoustic insulation, as well as many unique products for the marine market. Its current primary product, ClimaCab, is a battery-operated A/C system for truck sleeper cabs--an innovative solution that provides driver comfort without using any fuel.
