Heat and Control has come a long way from its early days of industrial frying systems. By continuing to innovate, it has evolved into a world leader of equipment manufacturing of food processing, seasoning and conveying, packaging and inspection equipment systems.
Manufacturing facilities were originally based in California only, and now has expanded throughout the US and into Australia, Mexico, China and India. The company is now supported by a network of regional sales offices in places such as South Africa, Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, Scotland, The Netherlands, Poland, France and Spain. Australia is headquarters for all operations outside the Americas, and is home to a large manufacturing facility that exports to the world.
