Atlanta, Georgia-based Kason Industries has acquired one of its long-term European partners as it seeks to expand its presence overseas.
The company has agreed a deal to take over Oxford Hardware, a commercial kitchen and refrigeration component supplier based in the UK.
Oxford Hardware is an established provider of components to the catering industry and has been in business for almost 20 years. It provides canopy fittings, lamps, feet and castors and refrigeration parts, including equipment from Kason.
After a working partnership of many years, the acquisition enables Kason to cement its UK presence as leader in the sector.
Kason is one of the largest suppliers of hardware and components for refrigeration, foodservice and industrial equipment.
The company has five North America branches and a raft of distributors around the globe providing hardware products and accessories to foodservice customers. Every Kason product is specified in-house and engineered to meet its stringent standards.
