Beech Ovens Partnering With Jade Range

Australia-based Beech Ovens, acquired last April by Middleby Corp., is joining forces with Jade Range for sales, manufacturing and product support in the United States. 

Ray Williams, president of Brea, Calif.-based Jade Range, will expand his role to oversee and manage the activities at Beech Ovens. Additional domestic sales support for Beech Ovens has been added as well.

“The synergies between these two outstanding, well-known Middleby brands makes a perfect fit for our manufacturing and sales efforts,” Williams stated. “In California, where we manufacture Jade, we are able to provide additional high-quality manufacturing capabilities for Beech Ovens. This will allow Beech to expand its product offerings to U.S. and international customers.”

Beech Ovens, which manufactures a product line including stone hearth, wood-fired, tandoori and rotisserie ovens, was established in Brisbane, Australia in 1958. Prior to partnering with Jade Range in the U.S., all business and manufacturing for Beech was based there.
