For sourcing and importing foreign-manufactured commercial food equipment, Global Solutions offers a rare, diversified brand of expertise you simply won’t find anywhere else.
Global Solutions first emerged years ago as industry dynamics forced our parent company—a U.S.-based food-equipment manufacturer with a near 50-year history of innovation—to explore overseas production alternatives.
Today, Global Solutions has evolved into a dedicated sourcing and distribution enterprise that remains intimately connected to the design–manufacturing resources of the longstanding company that created us.
This gives us a sharper eye when it comes to evaluating your equipment need and the production facility that can fulfill it most cost-effectively.
Over the course of a long history in foodservice, Global Solutions’ leadership has worked with a countless number of major North American chains, most of which maintain a global footprint.
In this capacity, we’re continually engaging industry pros on the international foodservice trade-show circuit, meeting with executives at some of the world’s most established food-equipment OEMs and talking shop with in-the-trenches foreign-market sales teams and the operators they serve.
All of this ensures that your sourcing partner shares your perspective as a foodservice professional, while standing on the edge of the world map in food-equipment innovation and always seeing the broadest industry trends.
Global Solutions has a number of manufacturers with whom we’ve done business over the years and, knowing their capabilities, we can often expedite the sourcing process.
That said, we never take anything for granted and continually conduct reconnaissance on new manufacturers to ensure a competitive quoting process.
Most important, we know how to evaluate, vet and negotiate with potential manufacturers to optimize quality, performance and cost-efficiency outcomes.
We know how to attain the necessary foreign and domestic agency certifications, and we know all the ins and outs of customs and shipping, arguably the most intimidating aspect of offshore sourcing.
