Global American and Glacier Computer Join Forces

Posted on October 22, 2018

Hudson, NH – Global American, Inc. today announced its partnership with Glacier Computer, headquartered in Milford, CT with a local facility in Amherst, NH.

Glacier, a manufacturer of rugged industrial computers, specifically fixed mount In-Vehicle PCs, will add depth and scope to Global’s already diverse product line. With their new Kodiak product, Glacier has developed a 5th generation VMT ready for any 24/7 mission critical, rugged forklift environment.

“The KODIAK is designed specifically for use on a forklift,” says Glacier’s Director of Engineering, Dan Poisson. “This is a device you can use in almost any fixed or mobile mount application but the design process began with addressing an unfulfilled need. Warehouse managers want the value of a tablet but need a rugged, reliable, long term lift-mounted solution. KODIAK is built to be that solution.”

With the addition of Glacier, Global expands its Industrial/Embedded product line that already includes Medical Grade, Industrial Automation, POS/Kiosk and Surveillance.
