|Standex's Nor-Lake and Master-Bilt Recognized by Foodservice Equipment & Supply Magazine|
Both brands were chosen out of more than 50 competing walk-in refrigeration unit manufacturers. The ranking was the result of an annual survey by FE&S among foodservice consultants, dealers, store operators and industry broadliners. Nor-Lake consistently had been among the top five in the survey, and was ranked in second place for the past three years.
"The fact that two of the top five spots in this ranking belong to Standex companies is a testament to the quality of our products, our employees' dedication to service and our ability to develop innovative solutions to meet our customers' unique needs," said John Abbott, Group Vice President, Standex Food Service Equipment Group. "Standex's refrigeration brands are the largest suppliers of food service walk-in coolers and freezers in the U.S. and are specified by nine out of the top ten national chain restaurants in the U.S."

"We look forward to leveraging our position in both the foodservice and drug store markets to expand into providing refrigeration solutions for customers in other industries."
