The Boelter Companies Acquires Premier Restaurant Equipment Company

The Boelter Companies, Inc. has acquired Premier Restaurant Equipment Company based in Minneapolis. Moving forward, Premier will operate as Boelter Premier under the leadership of Steve Trebisovsky, a longtime member of Boelter’s Minneapolis team.

The Boelter Companies will retain Premier’s associates, and will consolidate the Boelter and Boelter Premier operations in Minneapolis.

In 2015, The Boelter Companies recorded $305 million in annual revenues, making it the 5th largest foodservice equipment and supplies dealer in the country, per FE&S’ 2016 Distribution Giants Study. Premier reported $35.52 million in revenues, making it the nation’s 44th largest dealer.

Acquiring Premier represents the latest in a series of growth moves taken by Boelter in recent years. For example, in April 2015 the company acquired Georgia-based Direct South and in 2014 it acquired Robert Gill & Company and opened an office in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
