AJA Celebrates 60 Years

A.J. Antunes & Co., a family owned and operated company specializing in the manufacturing of foodservice equipment, recently celebrated its 60th anniversary— commemorated by an open house celebration and charity golf outing. 

From its roots as a manufacturers’ representative business in 1955, A.J. Antunes & Co. has become a foodservice industry leader specializing in countertop cooking equipment, advanced water treatment solutions and air and gas pressure switches and custom electronic controls. 

“For 60 years, our focus has been on consistently meeting our customers’ needs, and today, we support foodservice operations in more than 150 countries with innovative, high-quality products,” said Glenn Bullock, CEO of A.J. Antunes & Co. “Touring our facility during the anniversary celebration, guests were able to witness our commitment to continual improvement and the pride our team members have in their work — two qualities that are vital to our business as we seek to develop and deliver solutions that will revolutionize the global foodservice industry.” 

A.J. Antunes & Co. is also making a lasting difference around the world through a partnership with the nonprofit organization Splash. Splash has purchased and installed more than 1,140 of the company’s water filtration systems that provide clean water to more than 310,000 people each day. The reliable water filtration systems from A.J. Antunes & Co. provide the necessary means to generate clean water, utilizing Splash’s established networks to complete the installation projects in a timely manner and manage the projects on an ongoing basis.

In addition to being a valued product supplier, A.J. Antunes & Co. supports Splash through financial donations from corporate initiatives and events, such as the recent golf outing. The August 28th outing’s proceeds — a total of more than $40,000 — were donated to Splash to assist them in their efforts to bring clean water to children around the world.

“Through the rewarding partnership between A.J. Antunes and Splash, children living in impoverished urban areas, as well as earthquake victims in the most affected communities in Nepal, are receiving clean water,” said Jane Antunes Bullock, vice president of administration with A.J. Antunes & Co. “Having seen installation sites firsthand, I can attest to the impact this organization’s work has had and continues to have on thousands of people around the world. We are inspired by Splash’s mission and are proud to play a part in its success.”
