Main Auction Services, Inc., buys and sells the latest food service and restaurant equipment by the world's leading manufacturers like Traex Vollrath.

Strategic Acquisition Adds to Vollrath’s Ever-Expanding Product Portfolio

On April 28, 2011 Vollrath President and Chief Executive Officer, Paul Bartelt, announced the acquisition of Traex Company from Libbey Glass®, Inc., a subsidiary of Libbey Inc. (NYSE:LBY) located in Toledo, Ohio.  By acquiring Traex, a market leader in the production of warewashing systems and plastic kitchen products, Vollrath will expand the depth and breadth of its foodservice supplies.

While Vollrath is known throughout the industry as a leader in metal stamping and fabrication, the acquisition of Traex adds plastic molding and manufacturing to Vollrath’s capabilities.  Vollrath’s product offering will increase with additional warewashing systems, tabletop accessories, bar supplies, food preparation products, dispensers and trays.  The addition of these new products will complement Vollrath’s extensive equipment and smallwares offering, while further enabling the company to serve as a one-source solution to help foodservice professionals run a more flexible, efficient and profitable business.
