Thermodyne Foodservice Products, Inc., was founded in 1987 upon the development of a revolutionary method of heat transfer. Dating back to the late 70’s, research and development began to seek out a better method of transferring heat to food products and maintaining food quality for extended periods of time, after it was cooked. The focus was twofold:
- Transferring heat at an exact temperature without exceeding it at any time.
- Developing an efficient heat transfer method suitable to the foodservice industry to decrease the usage of damaging high temperatures.
After extensive design and testing, Thermodyne’s first ever model was released as the THS 2000, three-in-one unit. This model was marketed as the Swiss Army Knife of the foodservice industry, as it offered amazing capability in cooking, holding, and rethermalizing a large variety of food products in the same cabinet at the same time. In the years to follow, Thermodyne continued refining technology and adding models to the line of conduction equipment in an effort to address food capacity needs of all sizes.
Family bloodlines run deep into the heritage of Thermodyne Foodservice Equipment. Company founder, Vince Tippmann, first entered the foodservice equipment marketplace nearly 50 years ago; drawing on five generations of heat transfer and refrigeration knowledge dating back to 1896.
Thermodyne Foodservice Products, Inc., was founded upon the development of a revolutionary method of heat transfer. Dating back to its development, a small research team sought to develop groundbreaking technology that could provide consistent heat to food products, without ever exposing them to temperatures beyond their desired internal temperature.
Once this technology was perfected, Thermodyne began shipping units both domestically and internationally to operators eager to get their hands on the latest technology in the marketplace. While components and materials have changed with the pace of the manufacturing industry, the core method of heat transfer remains unchanged from its original design.
Today, Thermodyne offers more than 35 different models; many of which are available for same day shipment in the United States and to Canada. We also offer extensive design experience and the manufacturing capacity to customize equipment to specific customer needs.
