Thermal Technologies celebrates 25 years at PMA Fresh Summit


Jurassic Park was in movie theaters, Bill Clinton was sworn in as President, gas was $1.15 a gallon and the Buffalo Bills lost their record 3rd straight Super Bowl in a row (sorry Bills fans). The year was 1993, the same year Thermal Technologies introduced their patented TarpLess® ripening room system at PMA Fresh Summit for the very first time in Denver, Colorado.

This year in Orlando marks Thermal Tech’s 25th anniversary as an exhibitor. “The PMA Fresh Summit is a great venue for reaching new customers and prospects”, says Jim Lentz, Thermal Tech president. “Attendance is strong, there’s broad international representation and it’s a prime opportunity to visit with many of our existing customers from around the world. We appreciate all the work PMA does on behalf of the industry and the Fresh Summit is something we are proud to support and look forward to attending every year.”

Since first exhibiting in 1993, Thermal Tech has grown to become the global industry leader in the design, manufacture and installation of produce ripening rooms. Today, the TarpLess® ripening room system can be found in the DC’s of 18 of the Top 20 retailers in North America as well as installations around the globe from South America to Europe and Asia.

Thermal Tech’s corporate headquarters and manufacturing campus is located in Blythewood, SC.  To learn more, stop by PMA Fresh Summit booth #1101 or visit
