ThermoServ has acquired United States Dinnerware Inc.’s commercial melamine tableware brand, Prolon.
According to the company, the acquisition further expands its production capabilities in the tabletop area and opens room for growth into the commercial food service space.
Prolon has had a presence since 1959 in the commercial food service areas of restaurant supply, hospitality, military and institutional businesses. Like ThermoServ, Prolon is a domestic manufacturer, operating its full molding and decorating operations out of existing headquarters in Port Gibson, MS. Prolon’s expertise covers a range of commercial grade melamine dinnerware and tabletop accessories. ThermoServ said it will be moving production of Prolon dinnerware to Dallas.
“We are pleased to bring renewed energy and resources to the Prolon brand and look forward to growing our ability to serve the food service industry with domestically produced, high-quality dinnerware and plastic drinkware,” said Tom Neth, ThermoServ’s president. “We believe this transaction will accelerate the growth of both Prolon and ThermoServ, strengthen our relationships with existing customers and support our commitment to being a leading manufacturer of high-quality, American-made dinnerware and drinkware products.”
