For over 100 years, Berkel has produced reliable equipment that chefs and operators depend on for consistently great results. In 1898, W.A. Van Berkel, a butcher in Rotterdam of the Netherlands, invented a way to slice more meat to better serve his customers. By 1907, Berkel machines were being used in England, Belgium, France, Russia, China, Mexico, and Canada. In 1909, manufacturing of the first American machines began at the U.S. Slicing Machine Company in Chicago, IL. Recently, Berkel relocated to its present location in Troy, OH. Berkel's unique combination of experience and innovation has made its name synonymous with quality foodservice slicers, vacuum packaging equipment, and more. Maximize your time in the kitchen.
