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.

Little America

Dino Spiropoulos and partner Gus Revel's Little America restaurant in Mt. Prospect, Illinois serves delicious Greek-American dishes to loyal Windy City customers 24-hours a day. He knows there's no time for down time in a business that operates around the clock.

That would explain why for over 20 years he's equipped his kitchen with one brand: Vulcan. He's particularly pleased with the performance of his 900 series chrome griddle. "It's the perfect griddle for us, a high-volume performer that starts fast, has great recovery and is easy to clean," said Spiropoulos.

Vulcan is proud to be part of the food tradition in Chicago. The city's renowned "Greek Town" is home to more than 300 Greek eateries, most of which trace back to a town called Tsipiana, in the Pelopponese mountains of Greece. You can literally taste that tradition in Little America specialties such as pasticcio and moussaka, served piping hot—from Vulcan ovens, and shishkebab and gyros, seasoned and grilled on Vulcan griddles.
