150 YEARS OF QUALITY
Masterful design. Precision performance. State-of-the-art innovation. For 150 years, Vulcan has been recognized by chefs and operators around the world as the best-in-class supplier for top-quality, energy-efficient foodservice equipment. Professionals trust Vulcan restaurant equipment to produce spectacular culinary results each and every time.
Our history can be traced back to 1865 and a foundry company in Louisville, Kentucky that manufactured cooking stoves and other products. That operation would later become part of the Hart Manufacturing Company. The Vulcan name first appeared in 1890 with the formation of the Vulcan Gas Heating Company. Through the early 20th century, both companies grew and continued to add product lines. In 1949, Vulcan-Hart was formed when Hart Manufacturing Company acquired the Vulcan name and line of commercial products. The new company continued to expand its product lines, both through acquisitions and through research and development. Today, Vulcan is among the world's largest manufacturers of commercial cooking equipment for the restaurant and food service industry.
