Company History

Ives Bros. Inc. put down roots at 1244 Main Street in Willimantic, and while our services have changed with the needs of our customers (we no longer deliver ice), our address has not. We’re still right here on Main Street, and those roots have only grown stronger.

They’ve stretched, too. For 87 years, our delivery area consisted of Willimantic and the area stretching two towns away in each direction. In 2004, we added Woodstock, Putnam, Danielson, Pomfret, and Plainfield. In 2008, after numerous requests for service, we felt the need to expand even further to include the communities of Colchester, East Hampton, and East Haddam.

Ives Bros. Inc. has proudly delivered uninterrupted service through two world wars, the Great Depression, and man’s first steps on the moon. Through it all, our reputation for honesty and integrity has remained just as solid as those first blocks of ice we delivered almost a century ago.

We are members of the Better Business Bureau and the Connecticut Energy Marketers Association. We welcome the opportunity to work for you, and we look forward to the next hundred years!
