company overview

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.

Cheeburger Cheeburger

Gene Rees has been in the business for 25 years and knows kitchens. That's why the president and founder of Rees Design & Sales specifies Vulcan fryers for Cheeburger Cheeburger, one of the nation's hottest restaurant franchises.

"My approach is simple—form follows function. The back of the house has to work flawlessly for the front of the house to succeed. Vulcan fryers work and keep working. And their people are great problem solvers," Rees said.

The 1950s-themed chain leans heavily on its fryers for its signature french fries and rings. The oil is filtered twice daily, a task made simple and efficient by Vulcan's exclusive KleenScreen PLUS® filtration system.

The Pennsylvania-based Rees has been with Cheeburger Cheeburger since its humble beginnings and proudly points to a new restaurant recently opened in Kuwait as the start of its global expansion.
