Wittco Foodservice Equipment was established in 1962 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as a privately held company. Over the next three decades the company built a solid reputation for quality products, including cook & hold and rethermalization ovens, holding & transport and banquet cabinets, as well as drawer warmers and heated display cases. Markets served included restaurants, caterers, business & industry, schools and colleges, healthcare and corrections. Wittco was acquired in 1998 by the PMI Food Equipment Group (PMI-FEG; a business segment of Premark International). In order to better facilitate market growth, the company made a significant capital investment in 1999 and 2000 by renovating its Resource and Solutions Center and doubling the size of its production facility in Milwaukee.
