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.

Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse

Dickie Brennan's has been named one of America's 10 best steakhouses by Maxim Magazine, designated a "Power Table" location by The Wall Street Journal, and received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.

It's a restaurant that has hit its stride and then some. Yet, amazingly, New Orleans' Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse found itself literally submerged in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. But with a healthy dose of determination, and help from Vulcan, it's back stronger than ever.

"After the storm, we had an opportunity to go with whatever equipment we wanted," said Managing Partner Steve Pettus. "But it seemed like a strong family connection between our group and Vulcan. When you find a great product like this, it's a lot easier to go forward with it."

Vulcan made New Orleans restaurants a priority after the storm and provided Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse with the heavy-duty ranges Pettus calls "incredibly versatile" and "very well built."
