A legacy of food retail innovation

We are a world leader in merchandising and refrigeration solutions, helping grocery stores and supermarkets attract shoppers, reduce shrink and enhance food safety.

Collaborating to win the battle for baskets

Bringing families and friends together around the dinner table is one of life’s joys. But as our lives have gotten busier, the task of putting a great meal on the table has become more daunting. Hussmann believes that innovative technology can help close the gap between our desire to gather around a dinner table over a great meal and our time-pressed lives. Now part of Panasonic, the global technology solution leader, Hussmann is uniquely positioned to help food shoppers close this gap through our supermarket services. 

Toward this end, we’re developing innovative supermarket solutions that radically streamline and personalize the shopping experience. These innovations include: 

  • Our pickup locker and IoT “clicks meets bricks” solution, where eCommerce purchases can be collected at retail locations in secure refrigerated, freezer and room-temperature lockers. 
  • IoT and Intelligent shelf label solutions, which provide shoppers with more product information and enable retailers to automate and increase accuracy of their stocking. 
  • Data collection and analytics, which build on intelligent shelf label data, allowing retailers to better manage their product mix and price, shopper engagement, and in-store marketing.

We partner with supermarkets and grocery stores to develop innovative solutions that attract more shoppers, enhance their product selection and optimize the retail environment.

For more than a century, we have been a leader in providing display merchandisers, refrigeration systems, installation and services to food retailers around the world. Many of our innovations, such as the first patented display case, the first frozen food case and the first multi-deck dairy case, have helped define the modern supermarket industry. And we’re constantly evolving.

We enable excellence in food retailing with our world-class merchandising and refrigeration products, store planning and retail optimization services, as well as food quality and energy savings consulting. Our trusted supermarket service organization has coast-to-coast service facilities and 1,200+ certified technicians , expertly providing project management, application engineering, installation, maintenance and the full gamut of related support services.

Since 1906, Hussmann has been a leading provider of display merchandisers, refrigeration systems, installation and services to food retailers around the world. Many of our innovations have helped define the modern supermarket industry.
