Superior Equipment Solutions (SES) has announced that they have acquired premium pellet grill maker Memphis Grills. It fits into their other premium outdoor cooking brands, like Alfresco Open Air Culinary Systems.

Bringing Memphis Grills into our family is a great fit for our overall brand portfolio and state of the art factory’s production capabilities. Pellet Grilling is one of the fastest growing categories in the outdoor cooking arena and Memphis Grills has an excellent reputation for both quality and innovation. We look forward to bringing production back to the United States at our facility in California.

Memphis Grills first entered the premium pellet grill market in 2010 and are available throughout the US and Canada. They offer both built-in and standalone pellet grill models. Most recently they released the Memphis Elevate, which has a unique look and number of premium features.
