Imperial Manufacturing announced that Jim Coffey joined the company as director of sales and marketing. Coffey has over 20 years experience in cold storage, the industry in which Imperial is a player, and brings his knowledge of the foodservice and food retail community to Imperial’s manufacturing and services.

Coffey previously held a similar position at ICS (International Cold Storage) after starting in inside sales and advancing to work with the dealer community and chain accounts. Coffey worked closely with consultants, architects, dealers, franchisees, and construction managers to produce the best possible solutions for each cold storage need. He also developed strong partnerships with multiple Fortune 500 companies to participate in a national role.

As part of directing the sales and marketing at Imperial, Coffey will participate in developing new offerings for customers, continue the growth of nationally-based business opportunities, and open doors to expanded cold storage installation use.
