Help Us Feed the Growing World

At Grote Company, we design, manufacture, and support industrial food processing equipment for the frozen pizza, sandwich, and food-to-go industries. We’re craftsmen that build the best machines available. We’re committed to our customers and work hard until a project is complete. And we hope you join us.


These are just a few reasons why our team says we’re a great place to work:


Family Owned & Operated

Since we were founded in 1972, we’ve been owned and operated by the Grote family. We’re proud to say the third generation has joined the ranks.


Help Feed the World

We’re an essential manufacturer, building food processing equipment and flexible automation to help make more food for our communities.


We’re Growing

We’ve diversified and strengthened our expertise with acquisitions of pillars in our industry, building a team of over 300 around the world, across three brands.



But we don’t work like a big business. We don’t have many layers of approvals or deep hierarchy. You can shape and change any process, technology, and function.

We care deeply about serving our company and customers, as well as our families and communities. Our enduring commitment is obvious in the relationships we build. Many of our employees have been here for decades.
