Parts Town Develops Innovation Incubator

Parts Town has launched Red Lightning Group. This separate division will focus on technology and serve as an innovation incubator for the Illinois-based distributor of foodservice equipment parts.

“The intent of Red Lightning Group is to accelerate the pace of innovation. As our organization has become larger over the years, innovating has become more complex,” says Steve Snower, CEO of Parts Town. “Having a separate division and team drive game-changing innovation will allow us to move faster than ever before.”

Emanuela Delgado, a longtime member of the Parts Town team, will serve as senior vice president and general manager of Red Lightning Group.

The Red Lightning Group launch comes several weeks after the company completed its combination with Heritage Foodservice Group. Parts Town acquired Heritage in October 2019.
