Web's leading source of Information about Dry Ice In 1978 Kenneth Ackerman, as a business
broker, sold a local Ice Business and was then invited
to manage it. Although they did not offer Dry Ice,
the constant requests convinced him to start carrying

that most customers ask more questions than the dollars
they spend! After many years of accumulated questions
Ken and his wife Ellen started writing down the answers.
With a Masters Degree in Education, Ken found he enjoyed
educating his customers regarding Dry Ice.
Modern times brought the lure of advertising
on the Internet and Ken and Ellen were quick to put

people. In five years on the internet - only four orders.
Including one to Puerto Rico after a hurricane hit.

about Dry Ice was where to find it locally. Ken was
proud to start developing the site www.dryiceInfo.com on
June 14, 2000. By the end of August he finished writing
and started the much harder job of listing Dry Ice
