North American Kitchen Solutions

North American Kitchen Solutions, Inc.  is the leading omni-channel, factory-direct one-stop-shop supplier of customized commercial kitchen hoods, fire suppression systems, fans, and other complementary products. In addition to brick-and-mortar kitchen equipment, the Company maintains a market-leading position for food truck ventilation systems. The Company’s strong management team and exceptional digital marketing platform further position NAKS for continued growth within the industry.

NAKS has developed best-in-class lead times and an exceptional digital marketing strategy, which have established the business as a strong player in the industry and fostered a diverse portfolio of customers, including restaurant owners, professional installers, distributors, and manufacturers. NAKS management has also invested in a highly consultative sales and support process, capable of making value-added recommendations to contractors, dealers, and installers. Leveraging feedback from the consultative sales process and its state-of-the-art production facilities, NAKS’ in-house engineering team has developed innovative ventilation technology, differentiating itself from alternatives on the market.

Valesco supported a majority buyout of the previous ownership group, partnering with the existing management team and our investment partner, Centerfield Capital Partners, to capitalize on the Company’s exceptional market position. Additionally, Valesco has identified substantial growth opportunities via new product development, strategic location expansion, and new customer acquisition.

  1. “We are very excited and proud to have the opportunity to partner with Valesco Industries.  With this partnership, NAKS and its brands are poised for growth.  With Valesco’s talented and experienced leadership team, the NAKS platform will be taken to the next level while remaining true to the core values that got the Company to where it is today.”
