Danish manufacturer of combi ovens Houno A/S has been sold to the US company Middleby Corporation, thereby adding a new range of combi ovens to its range of foodservice equipment.

Chairman and chief executive officer at Middleby Corporation, Selim A Bassoul, commented: "The addition of Houno to the Middleby portfolio of companies allows us to further penetrate the combi oven market - a market that is estimated to exceed $400m in value worldwide".
