Steelforme Partnership Brings Unique New Product Line to Fortessa Tableware Solutions
Sterling, VA – Fortessa Tableware Solutions (FTS) has made an equity investment in Steelforme, a Canadian manufacturing company that designs and fabricates unique, laser-cut buffet presentation pieces from stainless steel. The strategic partnership of the two companies will support increased manufacturing capabilities at Steelforme and bring their exquisitely designed buffet displays to global markets.
“We are thrilled to bring Steelforme’s buffet products to our commercial foodservice customers worldwide,” says Scott Hamberger, co-founder and CEO of Fortessa Tableware Solutions. “Their quality of workmanship and design, as well as their record of innovation, are perfectly aligned with our culture and goals.”
Steelforme’s market-leading capabilities in metal fabrication and design offer a significant best-in-class, integrated solution to commercial foodservice operators. In addition to pieces that are both functional and strikingly attractive, Steelforme’s fabrication methods allow for easy customization, including event and corporate logos.
“Our production philosophy is ‘modern craftsmanship,’” says Craig Bahl, founder and Creative Director of Steelforme. “All of our products are very functional, yet they are also considered to be objet d’art, and some are featured in museums and art galleries.”
“We always look for and embrace creative new ideas for the food service industry,” says Hamberger. “It’s part of our commitment to our customers and our promise to keep innovating our product lines.”
