Vollrath Acquires Spain-Based Pujadas

The Vollrath Co., announced August 17 that it has acquired Miguel Pujadas, S.A. The Santa Coloma, Spain-based company, founded in 1921, makes and distributes a wide range of cookware, steam-table pans, buffet and servingware, warewashing racks and light equipment. The acquisition allows Sheboygan, Wis.-based Vollrath to expand its global manufacturing base and diversify its distribution channels globally, the company said.

“Pujadas is a natural fit to grow and expand our business internationally,” said Vollrath President and CEO Paul Bartelt. “We look forward to leveraging our combined operations and resources to strengthen our commitment to customers around the world.”

The addition of Pujadas also helps Vollrath diversify its cookware, bakeware, pastry tools and serving-equipment offerings. The company’s product offerings include such items as carts and shelving, healthcare service items and tableware in bamboo and melamine, items not currently in Vollrath’s catalog.
