75 Years Experience

Globe Equipment is a family owned and operated business located in Bridgeport, CT. Founded in 1938 by brothers Sidney and David Ringelheim, it is now run by the second and third generations of Ringelheims, and continues to be one of the pioneers of the industry. 

The business started when David and Sidney moved from the Lower East Side of Manhattan to Bridgeport, CT. David took orders from local restaurants, and Sidney drove to the Bowery in New York City each week in his station wagon to fill those orders. Today, we have an automated facility that can service customers across the globe. 
As we have grown over the years, we have remained true to the philosophy and principles that Sidney and David started the business with - “Quality products, quality people, quality relationships”.
We realize that many of our customers work around the clock, and we are always available to respond to their needs with a personal touch. Our employees have been on our staff for an average of 15 years, which should give customers peace of mind knowing that they are going to speak with knowledgeable sales professionals. All customer service representatives are equipped with the latest technology and training available in the industry, so they are able to answer all of your questions and help you find the most appropriate and cost-effective products for your needs. 
The goal at Globe Equipment is to create an environment that promotes excellence and personalized customer service so that our customers do not have to worry about their restaurant supplies, and can concentrate on their business and customers. 
A lot has changed since 1938, but a lot has still remained the same. The knowledge, integrity, and passion that Sidney and David instilled in the company remain with the entire Globe Equipment family today.
