Founded in 1963 by Luciano Berti, Ali has become an international presence thanks to acquisitions in every corner of the world. Two principles have guided this expansion: Global vision and the choice of competent and reliable local partners. On each of the world’s continents, we work with local companies that enjoy a strong tradition in their market.
Ali Group maintains its global headquarters in Milan, Italy, and bases North American operations in Vernon Hills, Ill. Our motto: We are global interpreters of local culture and cuisine.
Ali Group develops, manufactures, markets and services a broad line of equipment used for commercial cooking, preparation and processing. Our portfolio is the most extensive in the industry, numbering 76 brands and 58 manufacturing sites in 14 different countries.
Each company is run by local managers who have the expertise needed to develop that specific market. This strategy enables Ali to strengthen its global position in the foodservice equipment industry while remaining relevant and competitive in single marketplaces.
Ali Group provides best-in-class foodservice equipment for hotels, restaurants, hospitals, airports, prisons, quick-service chains – even mobile kitchens for United Nations peacekeeping missions. From high-end Michelin-starred restaurants to container kitchens in the most remote and inhospitable places on earth, Ali Group’s specialized brands are present the world over.
Over the next few years, you will see Ali investing in rapidly expanding markets from Africa to Asia, from the United States to Latin America.
Wherever you are in the world, Ali is there with you.
