How We Work
Collaboration. Partnerships. Licensing.
We collaborate directly with manufacturers and major brands to develop next gen cooling solutions and products powered by Frosty Tech™.
Our Design Studio is equipped with a high-end 3D printer, with tools to create rapid prototypes and samples, and wireless temperature sensors to run real-world tests as part of the R&D process.
The 5 Key Forms of Frosty Tech™ are produced by our established contract compounders in the US and Europe in world-class facilities with the capacity to produce multiple truckloads per day and scale to meet any size demand our partners and licensees require. All of our blends are covered by multiple issued patents as well as numerous trade secrets.

Frosty Tech is an eco-friendly, non-toxic, 100% recyclable, cooling technology company. We work with outside partners and manufacturers to develop custom cooling solutions.
Back in 2008 as a college student, our founder John Bergida was daydreaming during his business law class. Instead of worrying about who was at fault in an instant hot pack liability case, he sketched potential applications for the technology.
Invention runs in Bergida's DNA. John’s great-grandfather, Ralph T. Ross, invented the first car locks that were put on the Model-T Ford, as well the bobby pin hair clip. Grandpa Ross received patents but never commercialized them.
In researching the feasibility of his sketches, John found that there are many ways to make things hot, but few, and often ineffective, ways to generate instant cooling.
Benedictine College hosts an Annual Big Idea Competition where contestants ride a trolley bus and pitch their ideas for a product or business. John won his senior year with the idea for a self-cooling beverage can and used the funds to file his first patent.
Grandpa Ross’ story inspired John to start his own business. The Dean at the time of Benedictine’s Business School introduced John to Kansas City Businessman Steve Sharpe and Chemist David Leavitt.
Steve became Frosty Tech’s first investor and is our current Executive Chairman. David is our Chief Technology Officer. He worked with John to develop our eco-friendly and efficient cooling formula found in all our products.
After over a decade of research and development, we’re bringing our first products to market in 2019.
