Elgin / IL. (tmc) The Middleby Corporation, a leading worldwide manufacturer of equipment for the commercial foodservice, food processing, and residential kitchen industries, reported net earnings for the second quarter of 2023. CEO Tim FitzGerald: We delivered solid results with top line growth and margin expansion at our Commercial Foodservice and Food Processing segments. We continue to execute toward our long-term growth and profitability targets at our Residential business, while managing the near-term headwinds from challenging housing market conditions. Inventory de-stocking affected the quarter at both our Commercial and Residential businesses and is expected to continue into the second half, with a lessening impact in the later part of the year. We continue to see strong underlying demand and a robust pipeline of new opportunities with our Commercial Foodservice and Food Processing customers adopting our latest innovations. Early signs of improvement in certain Residential categories are emerging as market conditions begin to stabilize and we are well-positioned for growth with the many exciting new products across our brand portfolio as the market returns,» said FitzGerald.
