Chesher Equipment Welcomes Chris Koehler as a Partner


Miles Chesher is pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Koehler as a Partner in his Canadian wholesale food service equipment business Chesher Equipment Ltd. 

Miles and Chris have worked together in the past and “This opportunity is a synergistic fit for the company.  We are looking to grow the company on a national basis by adding non-competitive product lines and by penetrating the distribution network. Our goal is to create a world class service level to lead the food service industry” said Chesher.  Chesher Equipment was started by Miles’ father John Chesher, who was a revolutionary pioneer in the food service industry and served for over 40 years.  John always looked for technology to support the customer’s needs for better equipment, lower costs, improve food quality, and increase efficiency toprovide the best overall value to their customers.  The company has carried on this philosophy.

Chris has had leadership roles in commercial food service equipment segment, having worked at Garland and then at Rational in Canada and the USA.  Koehler stated, “After spending the last 6 years developing an upstart plastics injection moulding business, I am excited to be back in industry that I truly love.  I look forward to rekindling old relationships and forging new ones as we bring new products and brands to the Canadian market place.”

Chesher Equipment Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has been appointed the exclusive Canadian distributor of LainoxCombi Steamers in Canada.  Lainox is the second largest combi steamer manufacturer in the world and was distributed in Canada for many years by Garland prior to its Convotherm acquisition.  “Lainoxis a reliable, high performance and quality piece of equipment, positioned a reasonable price point and therefore represents exceptional value for equipment dealers and end users alike” said Koehler.

Miles Chesher added that “We are looking to add other complimentary product lines that meet our high quality standard and provide us with the product platform to offer complete kitchen solutions.”
