The Belshaw brothers had a glazed look in their eyes when they began selling “sanitary doughnut machines” in 1923. The company manufactures a branded line of foodservice equipment designed for producing baked-goods. A 14-ft. model fries up 7,400 same-size donuts an hour! Along with fryers, glazers, proofers, and ovens, Belshaw Bros. also makes specialized equipment for preparing pancakes. Both retail and wholesale producers are catered to, including institutional and commercial restaurants, concession stands, chain bakeries, and even military bases and ships. Formerly part of the Ali SpA in 2007.
