History

Founded in 2000, Ashland Equipment, has grown from its Maryland roots to offer comprehensive commercial kitchen design, construction, equipment, planning, and consulting services – covering industries such as Healthcare, Education, Hospitality, Restaurant, Corporate, Government, and other sectors.

We have quickly earned a reputation of helping our clients achieve high quality work, completed on time, and within budget.  To sustain this reputation, we have expanded our core staff –strategically developing a solid team of experienced Estimators, Equipment Specialists, CADD Draftsmen, BIM Modelers, Project Managers, Installation Mechanics, Refrigeration Mechanics, and office support staff.

In 2002, we quickly outgrew the use of our offsite rental storage premises - prompting the move to the Riverside Business Park in Belcamp, Maryland. Geared towards commercial kitchen and equipment sales, this facility provided a staging warehouse and larger storage for cost-effective and productive results.

As our client base expanded through the mid-Atlantic region and nationally, we established a satellite office in Richmond, Virginia in 2009. By 2014, our business continued to prosper and we moved our main facility to a state-of-the-art, 67,000 square foot corporate office and staging warehouse – also located in the Riverside Business Park.

Ashland’s continual sales growth has been repeatedly recognized in Food Equipment & Supplies magazine as a “Top 50 Foodservice Equipment and Supplies Dealer by Volume – Distribution Giant,” and continues to build off of expanding opportunities to provide premier commercial kitchens.
