About LoBoy Coolers
Styrofoam Coolers, Styrofoam Insulated Shipping Containers, Styrofoam Ice Chests, Custom Molded EPS Foam Products.
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 nation-wide 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 the 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 waste water 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.
