IDS Menus, a supplier of indoor, outdoor, and digital menu boards, recently entered into a strategic partnership with Stein Industries Inc. to offer its client base a complete selection of restaurant equipment products. Founded in 1932, Stein Industries is a global manufacturer serving the concession, movie theatre, and retail industries. They provide their customers top-notch experience in metal fabrication, engineering, and woodwork. Some of the products produced by Stein include counter and concession stands, food warmers, candy display cases, and merchandise displays. Headquartered in Amityville, New York, in conjunction with their 60,000 square foot engineering, metal fabrication, and manufacturing facility, Stein Industries Inc. will provide a wealth of manufacturing capabilities to IDS’ customer base.

By partnering with Stein, IDS can be considered a “one-stop-shop” for food service establishments and a variety of other venues. The two companies’ combined offerings now include digital signage, a range of display products, large format graphics, design services, custom casework, and more. Andrew Stein, vice president of Stein Industries Inc., describes how his company will benefit from working with IDS Menus. “Stein Industries partnered with IDS Menus so that our products would have a clearer path into the foodservice and restaurant industry. Both Stein Industries and IDS have many years experience in movie theatre concessions, as well as quick-service establishments. The synergy between Stein and IDS is strong since we serve common market segments and are both focused on the décor of our customer’s establishments. Stein Industries is very excited to work with IDS Menus and feel this partnership gives our customers a “one stop shop” for all their interior, fixture, and menu board needs.”

Rick Kranz, CEO of IDS Menus, further explains why IDS selected Stein Industries as a strategic partner “For years our clients have been asking us for more display products. Partnering with Stein Industries was the logical next step to grow our product offerings. We will now offer our clients custom display cases, counters, and food equipment, as well as menu signage–completing our client’s décor. At Stein Industries’ 60,000 square foot facility, we actually design, fabricate, and test assemble entire restaurants before we break them down for shipping. We are very excited to be partnered with Stein Industries. Their reputation for high quality and attention to detail fits in well with the IDS culture.”
