Headquartered in Crystal Lake, Illinois, Central Specialties (CSL) is a privately held company with roots going back to 1927. Serving the hospitality and restaurant industries, the company offers a wide selection of high quality, durable products at a great value. CSL distributes its products through a national network of dealers and independent sales reps.
Our team is comprised of highly experienced and knowledgeable employees, who take pride in providing excellent customer service. We stock hundreds of SKU’s in our warehouse enabling us to ship orders quickly. For added convenience, we can ship certain products fully assembled.
Central Specialties has a proud tradition of making quality products in the USA. We operate a manufacturing and assembly facility in Summitville, Indiana that can handle custom orders with a fast turnaround. We also strive to support American manufacturing by using domestic steel, wood, and other suppliers whenever possible.
As part of our commitment to customer satisfaction, we make every effort to meet our customers’ unique needs. We are happy to explore various customization options, including color, finish, and branding.
We are also deeply committed to preserving the environment by using recycled plastic, sustainable wood, and water-based paint. Additionally, we donate a portion of our proceeds to non-profit organizations that are focused on reducing plastic pollution in our oceans.
