Built on a Tradition of Excellence
Since 1950, Hatco has been a leader in creating innovative ideas for the foodservice industry: bold innovations in equipment that improves efficiency, reliability and profits. Products designed and built to handle the rugged demands of today's foodservice operations. Hatco is a company dedicated to exceptional customer service and quality engineered equipment offering maximum performance.
From the corporate offices in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Sturgeon Bay, WI, there is a pride in the employees and their workmanship that is reflected in every product. All Hatco equipment is produced with a commitment to quality and reliability by certified assemblers using Demand Flow Technology. This process uses a series of quality checks and tests to meet rigid performance standards for every product.
Through the years Hatco has introduced many "firsts." The company began by recognizing the need to sanitize dishware and responded by developing an electric booster water heater generating 180°F (82°C) sanitizing rinse water, that soon became the industry standard. In the 1960's Hatco added Third Compartment Sink Heaters to the water line and offered the industry the first conveyor toaster, Toast King®, to meet the needs of high-volume bread and bun toasting. Hatco also took food holding to another dimension with Glo-Ray® aluminum housings up to 144" (3658 mm) in length with special reflectors that direct heat to the outer edges of holding areas, extending food holding times.
Through the 1970's the foodwarmer lines grew to include portable foodwarmers and then added humidity to a heated cabinet to produce Flav-R-Savor® Display Cabinets. The last two decades of the twentieth century saw Hatco introduce many products in the show-and-sell and self-serve areas as convenience stores, delis and kiosks grew quickly. Hatco's Thermo-Finisher® offered the industry another time and labor-saving product in 2000, a patented heated glass technology and heated stone surfaces. Most recently, Hatco has introduced Pop-Up toasters, Heated Wells, and Refrigerated Wells that will open the doors to many additional opportunities. Ceramic foodwarmers, for ultimate food holding power, and an Atmospheric Hot Water Dispenser with pre-measured hot water on demand round out Hatco's full line of foodservice equipment. Hatco Corporation continues to offer cost-effective solutions that meet the industry needs for versatility, productivity, profitability and service. Hatco quality equipment — Nothing less than the best.™
