325 Signature Series Grill.

Empire Comfort Systems Acquires
Vermont Castings Grill Line

Friday, August 7, 2015

Empire Comfort Systems has acquired the manufacturing rights to the Signature Series line of grills currently produced by Vermont Castings. Empire president Nick Bauer says the acquisition will help his company in several ways. 

“These are high-end, U.S.-made, stainless-steel grills with a great reputation for quality and durability,” Bauer said. “They will give our sales force new inroads into markets where luxury stainless steel grills dominate.” 

Empire already builds Broilmaster Premium Grills, and Bauer is especially excited about adding these grills. “Empire is family-owned with a passion for U.S. manufacturing, and the Signature Series grills represent more products we can sell to the family-owned businesses that make up the bulk of our customers,” Bauer said. “These grills will not be sold through the Big Boxes – ever.” 

Empire plans to update the cast-iron end caps and cooking grids before rolling out these re-branded grills in late 2016 for the 2017 grill season – just in time for the company’s 85th anniversary.
