The history of Hobart Dishwashers  

Hobart was originally founded in 1897 by Mr Clarence Charles Hobart as The Hobart Electric Manufacturing Company in Troy, Ohio, USA, initially making electric motors and subsequently electric meat choppers.

As the product range expanded to include further commercial catering equipment Hobart reformed as The Hobart Manufacturing Company with Mr Hobart leaving to form Hobart Brothers Co. with his three sons in 1913.

The Hobart Manufacturing Company introduced the planetary mixer in 1921, dishwashers in 1928, meat slicers & potato peelers in 1929 and opened branch offices in principle towns across America.

By 1959 Hobart had crossed the Atlantic investing in the factory in Barnstaple where stainless steel fabrication is still carried out, and in September 1983 Hobart moved into their headquarters in Southgate.

In 1989 Hobart acquired WM Still & Sons, manufacturers of commercial catering equipment, specialising in boiling water and tea and coffee making apparatus.

In 1991 Hobart integrated with the American Premark Food Equipment Group.

In 1999 Illinois Tool Works (ITW) acquired Premark Food Equipment Group with 55,000 employees in 600 businesses around the world.

Subsiduary Hobart Independent manufactures high quality dishwasher and glasswasher equipment in Germany under the Ecomax and Bar Aid branding for wholesale through chosen distributors to the UK catering industry and we are proud to partner them in the supply of their equipment and legendary service.
