Great Lakes West Buys HMAK

Great Lakes West, a Michigan-based foodservice equipment and supplies dealer, has acquired certain assets of HMAK, a Pennsylvania-based dealer.

HMAK will continue to operate under the same name, will stay in the Pittsburgh area, and all the HMAK employees are expected to remain with the company, per a release announcing the deal. Adam Cohen will continue to lead HMAK, now operating as a division of Great Lakes West, in the Pittsburgh market and beyond.

This marks the second acquisition for Great Lakes West in the past year. In August 2017, the company acquired Kessenich’s, a Madison, Wis.-based dealer.
