In 1949, Paul DeLorenzo and Thomas Springfield began a small company headquartered in Detroit’s east side. The Delfield Company immediately began to grow and twenty years later, DeLorenzo bought out Springfield, and the entire company was acquired by Clark Equipment. Delfield produced some of the best single door refrigerators in the USA with quality performance and a long lifespan.
Throughout the coming decade, additional plants were opened and in 1976, Delfield was purchased by the Alco Standard Corporation.
The Delfield Company passed from hand to hand, operating as a part of Scotsman Industries than the Welbilt Group under the Berisford PLC name. Finally, after another acquisition, the Delfield Company became a part of Manitowoc Foodservice.
Stainless Steel with technology
Despite all of these changes, the Delfield Company itself has thrived. Today, Delfield is recognized as the largest custom stainless steel refrigeration equipment producer in the world.
Careful attention to the production process as well as product design has played a large role in Delfield’s ability to not only survive but rise in the ranks of the refrigeration industry.
Today, Delfield produces a number of unique refrigerators and related products. Most are designed for commercial use, including air curtains and blast chillers, and freezers.
Other unique products include drop-in pan chillers, ice cream storage units, and reach-in freezers. Delfield also manufactures under-the-counter freezers and wheeled units that make life in a busy professional kitchen easier.
Delfield supplies numerous refrigerators as well as freezers and other necessities for business owners. Although the company’s history passes through many other companies, Delfield has proven that it outshines almost all when it comes to commercial refrigeration.
