About Us

Rowlett was purchased by Nisbets PLC, Europe’s largest catering equipment distributor, in December 2016. Seeing high value in the Rowlett brand, Nisbets have invested significantly in relocating and upgrading the manufacturing operation. Products are now manufactured in a modern Nisbets facility in Bristol, on a lean manufacturing process flow, with the prime focus on quality and safety. Products are still hand made by a specialised team of operators supported by a small dedicated customer service team. Although now owned by a large parent company, the Rowlett team are directly accessible and pride themselves on their ability and commitment to rapidly respond to any customer enquiries and provide responsive technical support.

The strategy within Rowlett is to grow the business as a specialised expert manufacturer of long lasting, strongly made commercial toasters, building on the long and successful history of delivering a high quality product.

Toast unites students in its golden-buttered simplicity. It’s been made immortal in song. It’s the family’s first daily ritual. Toast brings people together.

So show it some respect.

Whether it’s for household or commercial use, you can’t get better than a Rowlett toaster, the World’s Best Toaster. We take toast seriously. Since 1945, our British craftsmen have been creating the finest toasters money can buy.

Today, Rowlett toasters are ergonomically designed gems of technology, with craftsmanship, durability, style and individuality at their core using the highest quality materials such as stainless steel , and Rowlett toasters are renowned for being the best there is worldwide.

Our toasters and other commercial catering equipment are continuously improved, handmade and exported to 70 countries. They’re supplied to homes, hotels, restaurants and bars. They’re sold to ships, trains and high-volume food outlets everywhere.

Through all this, we’ve never lost sight of our goal: to enable chefs to create first-class cuisine.
Oh, and lightly-buttered, golden-brown masterpieces, too.
