Middleby Corp., an Illinois-based manufacturer of foodservice equipment, has announced the acquisition of RAM Fry Dispensers, a business unit of Automated Equipment.
RAM, an industry leader in automated frozen fry dispensing equipment, is known for reliability, ease of use and dispensing accuracy. “As an innovation leader, the RAM automated fry dispenser also manages portion control through inductive basket sensors, decreasing food waste and promoting a higher quality cooking environment,” said Tim FitzGerald, CEO of Middleby. RAM’s patented weighing system lessens food and labor cost by providing accurate portion control. FitzGerald added that with the acquisition, Middleby expects “to further develop and integrate this solution with our existing products.”
