This ability to fabricate and manufacture both wood and metal, gives us a large variety of opportunities to expand our product offerings to our customers in the foodservice industry.
Reels of Change
With over 100 years of adaptation to the markets, the late 1900’s presented yet many new opportunities. Events during this era created the catalyst to shape John Boos & Co. as a primary provider of gourmet products and foodservice equipment.
Major catalog and retail store exposure with many of the renowned companies in the kitchen specialty markets promoted growth of the Boos furniture and cutting board lines. Cooking shows gained popularity and Boos Block ® cutting boards were front and center stage. During the same era, Dr. Dean Cliver renewed interest in wood cutting boards with his Sanitation Study - Wood vs. Plastic!
On the commercial front of the business, John Boos & Co. began further expansion of stainless steel fabrication with the manufacturing of stainless steel sinks for one of the largest supermarket chains in the U.S.A. The chain remains an important customer still to this day.
With a broader scope of manufacturing capabilities to the foodservice trade, the avenue was paved for John Boos & Co. to begin the roll-out of stainless equipment for stadiums and arenas. The stadium concession stands were equipped with stainless products. Several years later, Boos Block ® hard rock maple cutting boards and commercial butcher block tops would find their way into the same venues.
John Boos & Co. launched www.johnboos.com in the 90’s and began their growing product market on-line. Boos customers began marketing and selling these same products through their own web sites.
The Current Picture
As John Boos & Co. celebrates over 125 years of continuous business, they stand with strength built on a block of American history. The well recognized gourmet Boos Block ® brand has become significant to the heritage and reputation. Having adapted to market changes through the years, the company continues to grow in its service to the gourmet, foodservice, residential, supermarket, and industrial markets.
During the 125th anniversary year of John Boos & Co., the company has expanded with a move to a new corporate office location combined with a new metal plant facility in Effingham, IL. The new facility at nearly 87,000 square feet, located on over 12 acres of property will allow us to “grow forward” with relocating our current Effingham wood plant facility and on-site kilns to the same new location within the next few years.
Joe Emmerich, President of John Boos & Co., states: “Visionary leaders have fostered John Boos & Co. success every step of the way. The changes in America’s history are built-in incentive for our company to be very open and flexible to the same degree of change.”
