The United States-based Middleby Corporation has announced the acquisition of the Seattle-based Synesso, a designer and manufacturer of semi-automatic espresso machines for the commercial market.
“Synesso is a highly innovative brand and further expands our coffee and beverage platform. Middleby is well-positioned within the beverage category offering some of the most advanced equipment in today’s fast-growing coffee market,” says Tim FitzGerald, CEO of Middleby.
“Our Seattle-based coffee companies are able to provide operators with a variety of sought-after options including automated bean to cup, cold brew, nitro brew, traditional carafe and now semi-automatic espresso. There are strong synergies between Synesso and our current US coffee brands Concordia, JoeTap and SsBrewtech. Together, as a group, Middleby is a leader in the industry with coffee diversity and innovation.”
Middleby says Synesso machines are known for their robust design, as well as for being energy efficient, low maintenance, easy to operate, and allowing users precise control of pressure and temperature. Since its founding, Middleby says Synesso has quickly grown to US$10 million in revenues.
