Having originated in 1985 in Taiwan, today, Sunpentown is a company that has its business wings also in China and the US. In America, it is headquartered in the City of Industry (California) — a place where over 3,000 businesses are situated. This city is unique because it has over 67 thousand people working in these companies that officially reside in the city but there are only about 260 individual residents, which makes it one of the largest in the world correlation of the number of dwellers to the number of businesses in one residential area (about 11.3 businesses per person).
There are about 20 kinds of ice makers that are manufactured by Sunpentown (more commonly known as SPT). They are countertop and under-counter models, which price ranges from a few hundred bucks to nearly $2,000. That price range makes these ice makers suitable for the needs of various businesses and households.
In addition to ice machines, SPT manufactures beverage coolers, glass frosters, fridges, ice cream makers, kegerators, wine coolers, and freezers.
