Vollrath Fully Integrates Stoelting into its Management Structure

The Vollrath Company updated the leadership roles within the Wisconsin-based foodservice equipment manufacturer.

Brian Hedlund now serves as vice president - foodservice equipment, Dennis Park vice president – foodservice sales; Nancy Wagner vice president of customer experience, and Aamer Mohammed, director of engineering - equipment. Simultaneously, management of the Stoelting Foodservice division is transitioning under the Vollrath umbrella and this leadership team.

Hedlund most recently served as vice president - serving systems and components. In his new expanded role, Hedlund will also oversee Stoelting Foodservice. This will take place upon the retirement of Rich Koehl, vice president of Stoelting Foodservice, at the end of June.

Park continues to oversee all foodservice sales, which will now include the expanded line of frozen treat equipment.

Wagner most recently served as vice president of supply chain. In her new role Wagner assumes responsibility for the integration of the Vollrath Foodservice and Stoelting Foodservice customer service and technical support teams.

Mohammed most recently held the position of director of Stoelting Engineering with the additional responsibility for managing the Industrial Cleaning division’s engineering team. He will now have overall engineering leadership for Vollrath Fabricated Equipment and Components, all Stoelting products and Vollrath Manufacturing Services integrated products.

Vollrath acquired Polar Ware Company in May 2012 in a deal that included the latter’s Stoelting operation, which continued to function as a separate entity.
