Sub-Zero and Wolf Factory Tour: Part 2

Last month I was privileged to be invited to visit the Sub-Zero and Wolf headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin to tour their factories and get a sneak peek at new products they are rolling out. Let me tell you-it was quite the experience and not one I will soon forget! Here is a recap of the last day of my trip and a look at some of the amazing new products they are rolling out. If you missed the last article where I shared about the first 2 days, check out the previous post.


Day 3 we were bussed back to the Westye Bakke Center, Sub-Zero & Wolf’s corporate headquarters, training center and spectacular showroom. Their chefs prepared another amazing breakfast for us which we enjoyed again in their beautiful dining room. Next we moved back into their auditorium and spent some time learning from the Customer Service and Marketing departments. It was a great time to ask questions and learn more about their internal processes. Interesting fact: their customer service line is answered by real people 24/7 in Madison, Wisconsin.  Next we headed to the Sub-Zero factory right across the parking lot. This 2 story facility really was incredible. The amount of automation that allows each piece to be made the same way every time really helps with quality control and precision. We walked through the factory learning about each step that goes into making a Sub-Zero refrigeration or freezer unit. And again, we saw that EVERY unit was tested before it was packaged to leave the factory. After returning to the Westye Center we were greeted with delicious boxed lunches for our trip to the airport.

It truly was an incredible trip full of learning opportunities, new people and delicious food. If you are in Atlanta, make sure to stop by the fabulous Sub-Zero & Wolf showroom in Buckhead. They have all the products on the floor that you can touch and see and feel and often do cooking demonstrations. It would be well worth your time. If you see me out and about, feel free to stop me and ask me any questions about this trip or other things we have discussed. That's all we have time for today. Next time I will share with you about some of the new products they are rolling out. Stay tuned!
