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.

"At Larkspur, we specialize in culinary classics – reimagined. Our reputation is built on a foundation of fresh local ingredients, thoughtful execution and unpretentious service.

Whether we are serving our always-popular larkburger™ from our bar menu or reverse-staging our sous-vide proteins, Vulcan’s VTEC charbroiler enables our team to cook precisely-prepared offerings. With the VTEC’s excellent temperature uniformity, we are able to use the entire surface to cook our dishes more rapidly and with a greater level of consistency. The infrared heat produces caramelization that builds flavor back into the food – there is minimal loss of weight and no dehydration.

The Vulcan team has been wonderfully collaborative to work with – you can tell they care deeply about the quality of their products and the happiness and success of their customers."

-Thomas Salamunovich, Owner/Culinary Director of Larkspur in Vail CO
