TALK TO OUR CLIENTS: THEY ARE OUR BEST BUSINESS CARD

Established in 2005 under our first and oldest brand – SMART ICE – we started off by introducing mobile synthetic ice skating for malls in South East Asia, starting from Malaysia.

Over the years we grew by introducing real (natural) ice skating – firstly mobile – to malls and then FEC’s and stand alone locations.

Since 2010, we pioneered the indoor snow for malls and FEC’s. In parallel, we have introduced and grown the Neveplast brand in the Middle Eastern and South Asian region, also establishing our own projects.

Ultimately, we have grown from supplying individual products to providing full solutions to the leisure industry.

NOW TOGETHER UNDER ONE NEW BRAND

Once upon a time…

We started off in 2005 when we brought a new concepts to the emerging Malaysian mallsmarketplace: Synthetic mobile ice rinks. Subsequently (2006 – 2008) we rolled over 60 events mainly in Malaysia and Indonesia.

As early as 2008 we started proposing the malls a new model – this time based on natural ice rather than synthetic – available both in mobile (for events) and permanent versions. A blasting success with over 50 projects realized.

From 2010, Filippo Gervasini started working on a new model of snow machine, small, portable silent: made for malls and FEC’s (this system has to be installed indoor, so it has to be light, fast freezing, silent and fast to install). We launched the first mobile snow playground in 2011.

In parallel – in the outdoor business – we rolled a series of new and unique concetps, like the TUBBY. Some of our first clients, such as the Sim Leisure Group, were visionary in understanding the potential of our concepts. Today, they are public list ed #escapepenang.

With the introduction of the new Ice Now – Cool fun brand ( www.icenow.biz ) we started driving the business from the mere supply of products, to the supply of full solutions.

In 2017 we started working on the first of its kind ice & snow FEC in positive temperature: the Frostland FEC ( www.thefrostland.biz ). Our first signature projects was completed in 2019 in The avenues mall, Kuwait city.

Nowadays from our new Kuala Lumpur office together with the existing Ho Chi Minh base,we cover concept design , schematic design , detailed design and theming design

All the equipment we supply is mainly build in Italy (tubby), Austria (ice and snow lines).

Additionally we procure rides and attractions (new and used) and provide erection and maintenance services

The biggest expertise of the company is design and build of indoor ice & snow FEC’s and tubby – related concepts such as link.
