Heat and Control celebrates its 70th anniversary
Founded in 1950, equipment manufacturer and food processing industry supplier Heat and Control will celebrate its 70th anniversary on 27 June 2020. It plans to mark the platinum occasion with a 12-month-long celebration.
With a father/son duo working side by side for decades, the family company continues to explore opportunities to uplift employees, satisfy customers and build meaningful partnerships.
Heat and Control started in industrial process heating applications, such as heat treatment furnaces and combustion systems, and soon became food focused as the industry experienced growth in the 1960s. By the 1970s, the company was able to supply complete food processing systems. Through the 1980s, the company partnered with Ishida Japan, a leader in weighing and packaging technologies, and acquired several factories to help serve growing customer demand.
The 1990s brought product line expansions and additional offices to service the food market. New technology was also introduced with FastBack, bringing horizontal motion conveying to the food processing industry, and providing better product handling between processing and packaging equipment. With the acquisition of Mastermatic, a frying technology company with a history in coating, frying and auxiliary systems, Heat and Control continued to strengthen its offering to the food industry.
In the 2000s, the company opened several factories and offices around the globe, increased focus on the development of improved controls and information systems, and partnered with CEIA, a leading metal detection manufacturer.
Spray Dynamics joined the Heat and Control brand family in 2011, increasing the company’s seasoning and coating capability and industry access to expertise in in-kitchen seasoning innovation.
Each of these partnerships has worked to continually build an end-to-end line solution provider that helps food companies take better control of their production and make better quality products.
“Heat and Control’s past, with my father paving the way, prepared an outlook for an exciting future,” said Tony Caridis, President of Heat and Control. “We have incredible people in our organisation, customers believe in our abilities and there is respectful collaboration with our global partners.”
With seven decades of modernising equipment solutions, the company continues to advance the food, pharmaceutical and multiple additional industries. It now has almost 1600 employees worldwide in more than 30 offices.
“As the President, I would like to say thank you. Here’s to celebrating the next chapter of innovation together!” Caridis concluded.
