The acquisition represents an exceptional opportunity to support the rapid growth of Marco’s innovative products and global brand.
Management, activities, and contacts for Marco remain unchanged. Paul Stack remains Managing Director with the support of the existing management team and Drewry Pearson continues in a consultancy role.
The Middleby Corporation supplies equipment to the global foodservice, beverage and residential catering industry as well as food processing and bakery equipment. Middleby brings to Marco a host of opportunities to strengthen and extend Marco’s growth and development.
Middleby provides Marco with unrivalled access to their Coffee Solutions Group, Consolidated Independent Rep Groups, inclusion in the Innovation Kitchens and exposure to chain accounts.
Marco’s operations in China will add to and extend Middleby’s manufacturing and sales teams and benefit from deeper supply chain and manufacturing technology.
Marco’s key trademark brand of innovative and solution-solving products will have access to the extensive Middleby Group technology base and to increasingly essential Kitchen Connectivity.
These, and other benefits, make Middleby’s acquisition a unique opportunity for Marco to develop and extend the strong Marco team and to scale Marco’s product range, markets and brand.
