Hussmann celebrates 115 years of serving the food retailing industry.
Hussmann founder, Harry Hussmann, had an ambition to reimagine an industry and provide customers with the best quality, this spirit lives on 115 years later with every product, solution, and service stamped in his name.
In 1906 Harry started his own business, Harry L. Hussmann Butchers’ Supply Company. He sold items such as knives, meat slicers, grinders, and butcher blocks. Entering a competitive market, Harry saw the importance in providing high quality products, value, and service to customers. Working closely with butcher shops, Harry recognized his customers needed a better way to display their meat. In 1917 he patented the first ever refrigerated meat display case, sparking a revolution in the sale of fresh meat.
