Alto-Shaam Firsts

Alto-Shaam was born out of problem solving. In the 1960s, Founder Jerry Maahs sought out an innovative solution so that he could deliver hot chicken to his customers during Wisconsin’s winter months. More than 60 years later, we continue to partner with our customers to pioneer kitchen equipment solutions that fulfill growing industry demands.
