Stephen started working in the ice industry as a young teenager. Growing up in the family business of Bagged and Block Ice manufacturing and delivery it is in his blood. After decades in business as ice manufacturers a need was recognized for local restaurants and convienence stores to have ice on demand and the first two onsite ice machines were purchsed to put on location as leases. Those two turned into several hundred and Coastal was born. Stephen has been in management since the inception of Coastal Ice Machines in 1992. While his dad decided to dedicate his time in the bagged and block division Stephen and an older brother took the reins and began to build Coastal Ice Machines one machine after another, while also branching out into commercial refrigeration equipment as well. Soon selling and leasing reach in refrigeration and walk ins. In 2001 his brother decided to make a career change and Stephen stepped in and has been at the helm working tirelessly to make Coastal the Best, Most Reliable and Honest Refrigeration Company in the Southeast Georgia region as well as Hilton Head, Beaufort, and Hardeville areas.
