Happy retirement, Sam!


Congratulations to Sam Laykhman of our Polish & Buff department on his retirement, which will begin Friday, April 29th, 2016.

Sam began working at Tomlinson Industries in 1983 in our hand polish department and went on to program our robotic polishing machinery.  Throughout his time at Tomlinson, Sam has been known for his kindness and loyalty, and he even inspired the company-wide Step to IT! step challenge with his daily walks around the Garfield Heights facility.

Best wishes on your new adventures, Sam! Thank you for your 33 years of hard work, loyalty, and dedication!

And so the countdown to NRA begins…

Springtime means a number of things- the days grow longer, flowers come into bloom, and the impending summer pulses energy through the air.

For those in the restaurant industry, springtime signifies the countdown to the National Restaurant Association’s (NRA) annual show in Chicago, where industry members converge for 4 days of demonstrations, networking, and much more. This year’s show will take place from Saturday, May 21st through Tuesday, May 24th, and Tomlinson’s preparation for the show is well underway!

While we bring products from all of our divisions (Modular® Dispensing Systems, Foodservice Products, and No-Drip® Beverage Dispensing), our cast iron products, cutting boards, and foodservice equipment have proven to be the most popular over the years.

Cast Iron: whether you’re searching for serving Large 3 squares foodskillets, fry pans, mini servers and pots, or griddles, Tomlinson cast iron provides pre-seasoned excellence that perfectly cooks food and can easily be taken to the table with one of our wooden underliners! Great for rustic motifs, ethnic foods, and much more.

COLOR MICROCutting Boards: Chef’s Edge® cutting boards are available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses to perfectly fit any kitchen.  Cutting boards are non-absorbent, heat resistant to 185°F, dishwasher safe, easy on knives, and available in an array of colors. They’re also available with Microban® Anti-Microbial Product Protection to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew.

Close Up Pizza in OvenFoodservice Equipment: with a range of products from soup kettles to pizza and snack ovens, warming units to merchandisers, Tomlinson brings a whole new meaning to excellence in foodservice equipment.  We’ll be debuting our new humidified merchandiser at this year’s NRA show, which allows you to keep pizzas, baked goods, sandwiches, and other foods moist, delicious, and appealing to your customers!
