The Middleby Corp. has entered into an agreement to acquire the net assets and operations of PerfectFry Co., Ltd., a manufacturer of ventless countertop frying units for the foodservice industry with approximately $4 million in annual sales.
“We are very excited to add the unique product line of Perfectfry to complement our industry leading platform of frying technologies,” says Middleby Chairman/CEO Selim Bassoul. “The compact design and ventless technology of the Perfectfry product line provides a foodservice operator with the ability to offer fried foods in non-traditional locations utilizing a low cost solution. This acquisition complements our Turbochef, Cooktek, and Wells brands, establishing Middleby as a leader in ventless cooking solutions for the commercial foodservice industry.”
