Heat and Control celebrates 70 years
Equipment manufacturer and food processing industry supplier Heat and Control is celebrating its 70th anniversary. It plans to mark the occasion with a 12-month long celebration.
 FOUNDED in 1950, with seven decades of modernising equipment solutions behind it, Heat and Control is still focused on advancing the food, pharmaceutical and many other industries.
With almost 1600 employees worldwide in more than 30 offices, the company is determined to bring science, imagination, and unmatched commitment to every project.
The father/son duo of Andy and Tony Caridis have worked side by side for decades, and the family company continues to press forward exploring opportunities to uplift employees, satisfy customers, and build meaningful partnerships.
Heat and Control started out in industrial process heating applications and quickly became food focused through the 1960s. By the 1970s, the company was able to supply complete food processing systems that offered a level of modernisation and automation never experienced.

Spray Dynamics, which had a long food industry history, joined the Heat and Control brand family in 2011 and significantly increased seasoning and coating capability and industry access to expertise in in-kitchen seasoning innovation.
Each of these strategic growth experiences and partnerships over the years has worked to continually build an end-to-end line solution provider that helps food companies take better control of their production and make better quality products.
Founder and chair Andy
Caridis says: “Our employees, customers and partners are the heartbeat of Heat and Control. I invested my entire adult life into this company with a hope and a dream. We started with few but now we are many. For that, I am grateful.”
His son and company president Tony Caridis says: “Heat and Control’s past, with my father paving the way, prepared an outlook for an exciting future. We have incredible people in our organisation, customers believe in our abilities, and there is respectful collaboration with our global partners. As the president, I would like to say thank you. Here’s to celebrating the next chapter of innovation together!” ✷
