Blodgett was rumored to be on the verge of closing its Burlington, VT, U.S. plant, after being purchased by commercial oven-maker Middleby in December 2001. "A year ago this company was losing a lot of money," says Middleby CEO Selim Bassoul.

Mr. Bassoul now says that by introducing new products and eliminating unsuccessful ones, Blodgett is prospering and expanding its operations world-wide.

Although Blodgett is not expected to expand within the near future, the company is developing a partnership with the New England Culinary Institute (NECI) that will promote NECI world-wide. And Blodgett itself will resume a practice of bringing its customers to town. "Starting in March there'll be hundreds and hundreds of people coming in for training from all over the world, which means hotel rooms are being booked here, restaurants are being filled," said Bassoul.

Blodgett says it got no tax breaks or incentives to stay in Burlington. But company president Selim Bassoul says Burlington has done the right things. He mentioned the availability of hotels, conference space and restaurants. The airport has more and cheaper flights. (WCAX.com)
