John F. Martin & Sons®, a maker of meat and cheese products for grocery stores, restaurants, and delis, including ham, bacon, deli meat and cheese, realized substantial cost savings by a simple switch of a slicing blade from an OEM blade to a replacement slicing blade from PRIMEdge.
The bacon industry, thanks to more people cooking at home and buying larger quantities, is resulting in double-digit sales, according to this National Provisioner article. To keep up with the increased demand, John F. Martin decided to expand its bacon plant in Womelsdorf, Pa. Initially, the plant was operating with only two Weber® Slicer 702 machines. Today, the company is running a total of six Weber® slicing machines. Mer >>>
Just over 115 years ago, in 1905, with one small suitcase each, a pushcart to sharpen knives and an abundance of courage, two cousins from a small village in Italy’s Northern Dolomites region, boarded a ship destined for America. Four weeks later, Giuseppe and Eduardo Cozzini stepped onto New York Harbor’s Ellis Island, the landing point where thousands of immigrants from every country in Europe were arriving in America, the New World, to begin new lives.
Both cousins had lived their entire lives in what is known today as the Northern Italian Alps. Back then the area was mostly comprised of small farming communities, all within the boundaries of Austria. Giuseppe and Eduardo were from the small Austrian town of Pinzolo which bordered Italy and became part of it in 1916. Both young men spoke fluent Italian and German. Also in 1905, largely due to the necessity to communicate in an already known language, the two made their way to Milwaukee where a large German speaking population had already settled. Pushing their knife sharpening cart from one butcher shop and restaurant to the next, the two soon built a knife sharpening business in Milwaukee, that was large enough to sustain one person. Mer >>>

Brev från vår nye president, Alexander Cozzini
Detta har varit ett mycket ödmjukt ögonblick för mig och har väckt många minnen, varifrån jag började till där jag är idag. Det är en otrolig ära för mig att leda och tjäna vår fantastiska grupp av företag. Under en livstid förvandlade Ivo ett litet företag - som en gång opererade från sin egen källare - till ett multinationellt företag. Ett företag som beundras universellt i en betydande, världsomfattande industri. Historiskt har vår bransch varit mycket traditionell, specialiserad och endast milt fokuserad på innovation. Ivo är helt klart ett undantag från denna tradition. Från Ergo Stål till Emulsionskvarnar prioriterade Ivo alltid innovation. Hans vision är uppenbar i alla våra produkter, inklusive förbrukningsvaror, utrustning och tjänster.
Även om många av er har känt mig i flera år vill jag dela mer djupgående detaljer om min bakgrund, inklusive vad som verkligen inspirerar och motiverar mig. Mer >>>
