A Cincinnati company has moved to the front lines of the effort to distribute the COVID vaccine across the globe because of a unique product they make in Evendale – a freezer. “Normally, our business is onesie or twosie orders.

We’re getting orders for 50, 40, 210…” said So-Low Environmental Equipment Vice President Dan Hensler. The freezers So-Low makes aren’t exactly the kind in most kitchens. The So-Low freezers reach temperatures of -91 Celsius or -130 Fahrenheit. The freezers have skyrocketed in demand because the Pfizer vaccine must be kept at -70 Celsius or -94 Fahrenheit.

There’s a worldwide shortage of freezers,” Hensler said. So-Low has about 50 employees who have been working overtime and on Saturdays to keep up with demand. The family-owned company was founded in 1959 on a site near where Riverfront Stadium would later be built. The 95-year-old founder still reports to work daily. Hensley recognized that it’s not every day that a company making freezers steps into the national spotlight for an effort that can help the nation. “No, but we’re glad that we can help,” Hensley said.
