Singer Equipment Acquires Ashland Equipment

September 13, 2017

To All Customers:

I am pleased to share with you the news that Singer Equipment has acquired the business of Ashland Equipment.  Singer Equipment is the largest foodservice equipment and supplies dealership in the Philadelphia and New York markets, and has a longstanding reputation for quality and service.  Singer is a 100 year old company and is still family owned and operated.  With our combined revenues we are now the sixth largest dealer in the United States.  I am excited about our growth opportunities with Singer and have signed a long term contract to stay on as President of the company, reporting directly to Fred Singer, the owner and CEO.  The wonderful team we have built at Ashland will remain in place, so you can expect the same personal relationships to continue forward as we serve you.

The acquisition gives our company increased resources and local presence throughout the mid-Atlantic region as well as South Florida.  Singer now has over 500 employees, 350,000 square feet of warehousing, and a fleet of over 60 trucks in the mid-Atlantic market.  All of these resources allow us to be even more responsive to you.

Singer also provides a complete offering of foodservice disposables, kitchen supplies, tabletop items and janitorial supplies.  Singer already delivers foodservice supplies daily throughout the Baltimore and DC metro areas, and I look forward to introducing you to their distribution offering.  I know it will only enhance our relationship and our ability to be a more complete solution to you.

We will continue to build our business so that we can bring you a more complete solution, both geographically and in terms of the services we offer.  Everything we do is to become a more helpful and effective partner to your business – to make us more responsive to your needs and to create solutions to your evolving challenges.  I am deeply appreciative of your business and the trust you put in our company every day.  We could not have reached this day without the wonderful customer relationships we have built over the last decades.  I, and the entire team at Ashland and Singer, will continue to work hard to delight you!

Sincerely,

Rod White, President
