Celebrating 80 Years of Excellence
A reputation for high performance, reliability and innovation doesn’t happen overnight. It is the result of time, dedication, and in the case of our company, visionary leadership. Since its beginning 80 years ago, every Traulsen product has been the result of faithful dedication to the design and manufacturing standards set down by company founder, Harry Traulsen, Sr. in 1938.
Mr. Traulsen instilled a customer-focused perspective on innovative features and product development, which continue to inspire our employees today.
Over the course of 80 years, this commitment to excellence led Traulsen to become part of the ITW Food Equipment Group in 1999, a collection of leading foodservice equipment manufacturers with shared goals for the highest quality commercial kitchen products. Aligning with the best in the business reinforced Traulsen’s commitment to the people and place where Traulsen products are made. Traulsen is proud to offer products designed and built in Fort Worth, Texas since 1994.
Traulsen is celebrating its successful history with anniversary celebrations every quarter in 2018. At the winter breakfast kickoff event, management honored employees who have been here for over 25 years. The April event was an ice cream truck social, which included a "Traulsen Scoop" - lemon cake ice cream topped with Oreos!
The July cook-out consisted of managers grilling burgers and hot dogs, with an ice cream truck for employees to enjoy a Texas summer day. October 20th will be Traulsen's big celebration event, where retirees and employees' families will come together for a fun-filled outdoor event, with food trucks, bouncy houses, games, music, and “Traulsen's Got Talent” show.
