About IEI

Institutional Equipment, Inc. (IEI) began in the year 1993 with nine employees and has grown to be the largest union custom stainless steel commercial kitchen fabricator in the Chicagoland area. This growth has been fueled by craftsmanship and reliable service. The company has expanded from a foodservice industry fabricator to become a full service custom metal fabrication and installation provider.

In 2002 IEI moved to its new 31,000 square foot facility to better serve our customer base and allow for future growth and expansion, Institutional Equipment sales representatives know how to go above and beyond customer expectations. We encourage all of our employees to provide the best customer service possible. By following our order process through initial consultation, architectural drawings, design, fabrication, shipping and installation, we ensure that our products are the best in the industry.
