Manitowoc Foodservice Inc., a leading global supplier of commercial foodservice equipment, debuts today as a standalone, publicly traded company following its spinoff from The Manitowoc Company Inc.

To celebrate the company’s independence, Hubertus Muehlhaeuser, president and CEO of Manitowoc Foodservice, will ring the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange today at 9:30 a.m. Muehlhaeuser and the company’s executive leadership team will be joined by Cindy Egnotovich, the company’s chairperson of the board, and French chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud.

“For more than 70 years, we have been innovation leaders in the commercial foodservice equipment industry,” says Muehlhaeuser. “Today we carry this legacy forward as an independent company with one of the broadest portfolios of both hot and cold foodservice equipment in the industry, from ovens, fryers, steamers, grills, ranges, and induction cooktops to beverage dispensing, blending, refrigeration, and ice-making equipment. With our global footprint and leading products and systems, we are uniquely positioned to help our customers grow.”
