Acquisition extends Vollrath’s product offerings for cooking equipment
SHEBOYGAN, WI - The Vollrath Company, LLC, a leading manufacturer of equipment and smallwares for the foodservice industry, proudly announces the acquisition of Belleco, Inc. Located in Saco, Maine, Belleco is a premier manufacturer of American-made conveyor toasters and ovens.
“Well designed and market proven, Belleco’s products live up to the standards of the industry's most demanding commercial and noncommercial foodservice operations,” said Paul Bartelt, President and CEO of Vollrath Company. “Expanding our offering of countertop cooking, warming and preparation equipment is of strategic importance to us. The addition of a USA-made, premium quality line of conveyor toasters and ovens enhances our existing portfolio and provides our foodservice channel partners and customers with more choices from a single source of equipment and smallwares."
For the immediate future it will be business as usual. The products will retain the Belleco name and manufacturing process, while sales and service will operate out of the Saco facility. Before year’s end, all operations will transition to Wisconsin, leveraging Vollrath's outstanding sales, service and manufacturing capabilities. At the completion of that transition, the products will be sold under the Vollrath® brand.
