Company History


history-1The Legacy Begins:
I.J. White was started in 1919 by Irving John White (IJ), as a reseller and manufacturers’ representative for companies such as Werner & Pfleiderer, Middleby Marshall and Hayssen. Located on Houston Street in downtown New York City, the IJ White Corporation established a reputation for quality, reliable equipment and supporting their customers with excellent service.

history-2The Tradition Continues:
Our industry started to change significantly in the 1960′s, with a greater emphasis placed on efficiency, higher production rates and the need for better floor space utilization. By 1965, under the direction of Harold J. White, the company started designing and manufacturing Vertical Processing Systems, which today is I.J. White’s principal business. I.J. White was one of the original licensee of the ”Low Tension System” and metal belt. Today IJ White is the only remaining original licensee that is still in business and who is actively improving the technology.
