Addition of Marco Beverage Systems Expected to Expand Middleby’s Coffee and Water Dispenser Offerings

Middleby Corp. has acquired Marco Beverage Systems, a Dublin-based designer and manufacturer of energy-efficient beverage dispensing solutions with annual revenues of $30 million.

“Marco is a leader in innovative beverage dispensing systems,” Middleby CEO Tim FitzGerald said. “This acquisition is highly complementary to our growing beverage portfolio, and the Marco product line further expands our offerings in coffee brewers, cold brew dispensers and a variety of hot, cold and sparkling water dispensers. Touchless and in-counter dispense technology is rapidly gaining popularity due to space and labor advantages, along with enhanced aesthetic features. Marco is well-positioned with solutions for these growing trends.”

Manufacturing for more than 40 years, Marco has facilities in Dublin and Ningbo, China. Products include POUR’D cold coffee on tap, which received the Best New Product 2022 award from the Specialty Coffee Association.
