Why Choose LoBoy Styrofoam Coolers, Styrofoam Shipping Coolers, Extra-Large Shipping Coolers & Custom Molded EPS Foam Products.
LoBoy takes pride in consistently maintaining the highest quality standard in manufacturing EPS Foam Coolers and Insulated Shipping Coolers, leading the field in customer satisfaction and reliability for decades.
When it comes to attentive Customer Service, the LoBoy Team stands apart thanks to a responsive, dependable, ‘bend over backwards’ approach that's at the heart of years-long customer relationships.
Thick Wall Construction - Won't Leak on You, Doesn't Break on You, Keeps Your Stuff Ice Cold Longer.
LoBoy started the Thick Wall Cooler revolution more than six decades ago by introducing its ‘Original’ 47-Quart that raised the bar in an industry where leaky, breakable coolers were once the norm. The founder of the company grew so tired of foam coolers falling apart during fishing trips that he came up with the thick-wall, high-density game-changer, and the rest of the EPS foam cooler has been trying to catch up ever since.
Unlike thinly made varieties, our line of coolers and insulated shippers feature standard, sturdy, thicker-walled construction that adds superior strength and durability for repeated use that can last for years (decades in some cases) if properly taken care of.
Higher Per Cubic Inch Density - Much Stronger Styrofoam Cooler, More Leak Resistant, Keeps Frozen Stuff Frozen Longer.
Every cubic inch of the base EPS material in a LoBoy Cooler or Insulated Shipper is more densely packed to provide a tougher barrier against heat transfer. This allows each one the ability to keep ice cold for days, not just hours for better insulation resulting in a higher level of thermal protection for longer periods of time at less cost to you.
Longer Production Cycle Times - Tougher Products, You Can Rely on our Coolers More, and They Last Longer.
LoBoy takes greater care in the time it takes to mold its products, creating a more fully formed EPS insulating barrier that makes each cooler more durable against breakage and more reliable against leaking.
Many molders rush their product through the manufacturing process to increase their profits, resulting in lower-quality merchandise with a higher risk of leaking, sweating, and breaking at the worst possible time. LoBoy takes the opposite approach with a quality-first focus to lower such risks to you, the customer.
No Pre-Cooling to Lower Surface Temperature - Won't Start Melting Your Stuff the way Hardshell, Hard Plastic Coolers Do.
Insulated shipping containers made with hard shell plastic, metal, and other materials can become so hot from the surrounding environment that they can start melting an ice cube the moment it touches the surface. These kinds of insulators must therefore be pre-cooled to a correct surface temperature before putting perishable cargo inside, thus costing time, labor, and energy resources.
LoBoy EPS Insulating products do not need pre-cooling themselves because of their built-in heat resistance. Placing a cold product in a LoBoy does not heat the item, but instead begins the thermal protection role immediately, saving time, labor, and energy.
Independent Lab Tested - You Can Relax Because We've Got the Science Showing LoBoy Coolers Perform Excellently!
As part of its commitment to making the highest quality EPS Foam products on the market, LoBoy relies on independent lab testing that the public can trust. These independent lab test results are made available to the public on the LoBoy website for easy viewing and verification.
The properly sealed containers containing water ice tested at a ninety-degree temperature for seven hours straight with no ice loss. These results are under controlled conditions with proper packaging and no repeated opening of the sealed lid.
Even LoBoy’s smallest recreational EPS foam cooler that people use for picnics and the beach showed only a ten percent ice loss at ninety degrees for seven hours, and the company is proud to compare such outstanding results against any comparable product.
Wholesale Pricing direct from the Manufacturer - Pay Less, Get More, Pass Savings on to Happy Customers, Make More Profits!

LOBOY FOAM COOLERS COMMUNITY & SERVICE-ORIENTED FOCUS
Magna Manufacturing, Inc. is a proud EPS Industry Alliance Member and creator of the legendary LoBoy Styrofoam Cooler, (made from EPS Foam). We have been helping customers keep it cool (or hot) for more than FIFTY YEARS! With a humble beginning reminiscent of the classic American success story, Magna has grown from a tiny little work truck driving along the beaches to a nationwide wholesale distributor of the top-rated Styrofoam Cooler in America.
A Look at LoBoy's 50-Plus Year History-Making The Best Coolers in the USA...
Founded in Fort Walton Beach on Florida's picturesque, slightly laid-back Panhandle, Magna has grown from selling a few dozen of its amazingly durable foam coolers in local bait and surf shops in the Destin, Florida area to selling more than a million foam coolers and insulated Styrofoam Shipping Container Boxes (Cold Chain Shippers) in 2008, and because of the high level of quality and reliability that is sewn into our brand, demand continues to grow each year.
That makes Magna one of the fastest-growing Expanded Polystyrene product companies in the United States.
LoBoy & Magna Manufacturing History
Magna Manufacturing got its start in 1967 as a result of one man's desire to create an EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) Foam Cooler (often referred to as Styrofoam) that would actually last more than a day at the beach or while fishing. The first "LoBoy Thick Wall Foam Coolers" arrived in Destin, Florida in 1967.
The company's name back then was 'Insul-Pak'. Insul-Pak grew by leaps and bounds over the years and was eventually purchased by Mr. Paul Owens in 1983, at which time its name was changed to Magna Manufacturing, Inc. Mr. Owens - a business visionary - began immediate upgrades to ensure that Magna could deliver quality products and services worldwide.
From Insul-Pak to LoBoy - A New Name and A New Age of Excellence
The manufacturing facility was completely refurbished with new molding presses and support equipment and continues to upgrade production and processes to remain one of the cleanest, most productive, and environmentally friendly EPS Foam Production Companies on the planet.
Awards & Recognition - Clean, Green, Community Contribution
The makers of LoBoy EPS Foam Coolers, Insulated Shippers & Insulated Foam Shipper Box Kits, and related products have repeatedly garnered awards and recognition for leading-edge efforts to ensure quality production, environmental protection, and giving back to the community. As part of our business practices, we work to continually lessen our own environmental footprint while setting an example for industry peers.
We manufacture a product that is likewise friendly to the environment and helps others save energy by reducing the need for energy consumption (such as when having to wastewater and electricity refilling cheap, flimsy coolers that can't keep ice or food or drinks cold for days).
The quality of our products saves money for end-users who can keep them in reuse and re-purposing for many years. This has a significant impact when working to expend less energy consumption from year to year.
Magna is a multi-year recipient of the Saving Energy Now award presented by the U.S. Department of Energy for demonstrating "Exceptional Leadership in Industrial Energy Efficiency."
We maintain an excellently clean facility and maintain a Safety First Environment combined with a 100% EPS Foam Recycling Philosophy.
At Magna Manufacturing, we don't just make insulated boxes. We manufacture solutions.
