Hansaloy Corp ...World's Leader in Slicing Bread
If you’ve read much of the history of the Quad Cities, you’ve no doubt learned that the first railroad bridge across the Mississippi River was here – and that this is the birthplace of sliced bread. The scheduled speaker at our Oct. 25 meeting – Allen Wright, vice president of sales at Hansaloy Corp., Davenport – may have something to say about that.
Hansaloy is known as the "World’s Leader In Bread Slicing,” according to its Website. Founded in 1933 by John Hansen of Davenport, the company is the world’s leading manufacturer of blades and related equipment used to slice bread loaves, rolls, buns and other baked products.
In addition to blades, Hansaloy also makes lattice, blade guides and honing equipment for bread slicers, and it manufactures chain for conveyors and coolers.
