About Duke

Welcome to Duke Manufacturing!


Duke Manufacturing has been an industry leader in food service equipment since 1925. For nearly 100 years our customers have come to count on our team of creative, problem-solving specialists for an unmatched customer experience and equipment that helps them be more successful.

In addition to the highest quality standards, our products are purpose built with your applications in mind. Our team is here to listen to your challenges and develop solutions that overcome your challenges and support your goals.

Duke’s success started with a single steamtable and the determination to be a “solutions provider” to the industry. With hard work, quality fabrication, innovation and a customer success focus, Duke has grown into an industry leader. Founded in 1925 by M.P. Duke, we’ve always been at the forefront of innovation. We were the first manufacturer of the waterless hot well and that was just the beginning. Throughout the decades, Duke harnessed the power to perform with over 40 US Patents and 36 Patents in process.

Now, nearly a hundred years later, Duke has a global footprint and a reputation as Your Solutions Partner.
