Imperial Machine Company (IMC) has been engineering catering solutions for more than 110 years. We have designed, installed and supported catering products for foodservice operations for generations; a fact we at IMC are immensely proud of. Because we manufacture and design in house we are able to offer a significant level of adaptation to ensure that a customer gets what they need to make their premises the best they can be. For instance, food waste recycling units, potato tanks, and individual bar units are regularly made on a “one–off basis” specifically to meet a customer’s needs and, with over 150 standard wiring looms and many electric motor variants available ex-stock, we are normally able to offer the customer exactly what they need wherever they are in the world on land or sea.

After many years of being family run IMC was purchased by the Middleby Corporation. The challenges and demands may have changed, but the company ethos is the same, provide high quality catering solutions supported by passionate, knowledgeable and hard working staff.
We pride ourselves on our ability to provide bespoke solutions to our customers. We don’t compromise on design, we don’t have to. With recent company investments of nearly £700,000 to our manufacturing facility, we have strengthened our ability to supply our customers with continually evolving product ranges, designed to meet the demanding modern catering environment.
Evolving product designs and increased production demand has lead to a massive review of our manufacturing techniques which has lead to reduced product lead times. This has enabled IMC to maintain our flexibility, continue to react to the customers needs immediately whilst also increasing production and growing the business.
You don’t spend a century in this business without picking up a few things along the way. In fact, that’s what sets IMC apart. Not our history or longevity, it’s the knowledge and integrity of our staff combining to deliver flexible solutions for the catering industry.
