The Middleby Corporation has acquired Icetro, a maker of ice, soft serve and slush machines.

Icetro’s technology has heat-treat capabilities addressing safety issues while reducing cleaning requirements.

“Icetro products are complementary to our growing portfolio of Middleby beverage brands. Because of their exceptional products and demonstrated reliability, Icetro machines are approved by regional and global chain customers,” said Tim FitzGerald, CEO of Middleby. “Icetro expands our offerings in ice, adding a selection of cubed and flaked machines, while their soft serve and slush machines enhance our existing product lines with a collection of countertop equipment.”
