Equipment Care Becomes Smart Care


Equipment Care Today, a national service agent to the foodservice industry, changed its name to Smart Care. The change comes as the company completes its transition from its previous owner Ecolab to becoming a standalone company. In November 2017 Audax, a Boston-based private equity firm, acquired Equipment Care from Ecolab.

The Smart Care name becomes effective immediately with deployment of the brand taking place across the company's business operations before the end of January.
Smart Care provides kitchen repair, maintenance services, and parts to the U.S. commercial foodservice industry. The company has more than 500 technicians and 400 subcontractors across 25 states.
