The Legacy Cos., a Weston, Fla.-based commercial foodservice equipment and retail appliance manufacturer, has acquired Sacramento-based dehydration technology provider Excalibur. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We especially appreciate Excalibur’s niche in the healthy food category since its dehydrator technology encourages healthy, low-fat, low-sugar alternatives to junk foods and snacks without resorting to artificial sweeteners, chemical fat blockers and salt substitutes,” Neal Asbury, CEO of the Legacy Cos., said in a press release. “We’re proud to have Excalibur join the Legacy Cos. family of leading commercial foodservice and retail appliance brands.”
Excalibur started in 1973 and today has hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide. The Legacy Cos. aims to increase distribution of Excalibur’s products and enhance the company’s market share in the commercial sector.
