Sheboygan, Wis. –  The Vollrath Company announces the acquisition of strategic assets of Albers Mechanical Contractors, Inc., based in St. Paul, Minn. With over 23 years of experience operating in the foodservice marketplace, Albers expands Vollrath’s high-end custom fabrication capabilities and capacity for its Serving Systems and Components division.
