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.

Local Schools

High school-level culinary arts students typically learn the basics of cooking and sanitation in foodservice operations. But through a partnership with Vulcan, students at the Culinary Arts program at the Center of Applied Technology North in Anne Arundel County are literally learning about the nuts-and-bolts of the equipment they'll use as they move forward in their careers.

The Center's culinary arts students were invited to Vulcan's Baltimore facility to cook for the President's Luncheon in the company's test kitchen. “This was a great experience for our students,” said Culinary Arts Instructor Bruce S. Davis. “They saw first-hand how the equipment is made and were able to work on the newest technology that they'll one day be using in the field.”

The relationship between the two organizations dates back to 1999 when Vulcan donated a combi oven to the Center and designated it an “official test site.” Since then Vulcan has given the school a culinary discount that made high-end equipment more affordable, resulting in the installation of everything from ranges to broilers to holding and transport equipment.
