Inspiration and Quality
Dalstrong was born from this insight, to better serve the modern needs and tastes of the men and women who are the heartbeat of the industry. To give culinary artists tools that take them to places beyond their imagination, to inspire limitless creativity with their cooking, and have more fun while doing it. We gather inspiration from things around us that fuel our spirit and sense of adventure, things like ancient warrior cultures, fantasy weapons, and fighter jets. We searched the globe for the best materials and manufacturing partners to execute on this vision and have never stopped raising the bar in this quest.

Coolie nation has been in the custom Koozie and coolie industry since the late 1990s. In our time in as printers, we have seen the revolution of the custom Koozie and coolie industry firsthand. Did you know that the inventor of the original beer cooler was a woman named Bonnie McGough? Of course, the design that you know and love and use to keep your beer cold has changed a lot since its invention, and the industry around customizing the coolie has changed even more. Actually, we're one of the main driving forces in the changes that have taken place in the last two decades. While some giant corporations are trying to crush small companies like ours, unlike them, we have never lost the true meaning behind customized coolies: our customers.
When William and Argyle Campbell first opened the doors at Cambro Manufacturing in 1951 their goal was to make a hospital meal tray of the highest quality possible. Named the Camtray®, it demonstrated that they were as committed to excellence in the food service industry as they were to the quality of their own products. As 2011 marked the company’s 60th year of leadership in quality, innovation and customer service, today Cambro serves the world with the industry’s most complete selection of products for widely diverse segments of the food service business.
In 2006, we founded YETI Coolers with a simple mission: build the cooler we’d use every day if it existed. One that was built for the serious outdoor enthusiast rather than for the mass-discount retailers. One that could take the abuse we knew we’d put it through out in the field and on the water. One that simply wouldn’t break. We decided early on that product innovation would come from necessity and firsthand experience – not from market research and data analysis. Today, YETI products perform when it matters most - whether that be an excursion into the remote Alaskan wilderness, chasing redfish on the Gulf coast, or just getting together with friends in the backyard.
