About Us - Why We Do What We Do
Curious about us? We’ve been building commercial kitchen equipment for over five decades. Certainly, things have changed through the years. But one thing remains constant: we understand the business, and our customers.
Winston Industries came into being because of our partnership with a famous Colonel. We developed a fryer specifically to meet his restaurants’ needs. Consequently, our founder, Winston Shelton, left a solid engineering career at General Electric in the late 1960s to start Winston Industries. Certainly, it was because of his entrepreneurial spirit and drive to create. Subsequently, he developed a whole new class of cooking and holding equipment.
We’re building upon this legacy because we believe in developing partnerships with customers. Certainly there is an entrepreneur in each of us. Accordingly, it’s the reason we’ve expanded our business – with innovation, new products, and geographical growth. Because we want to perpetuate our entrepreneurial spirit and provide the opportunity for others to do the same.
About Us - Who We Are
A lot of companies will tell you they “think outside the box.” But that’s not us – we never actually fit in the box to begin with. We’ve always enjoyed the position of being just a little different in our approach. Some have even called us a cult. We don’t mind. In fact, we’re sort of proud of it.
