Since 1965, the Los Angeles area has provided Dacor an inspirational atmosphere where innovation thrives, allowing for the creation of numerous industry firsts including the world’s first smart professional cooking range for the home; the Dacor Discovery iQ™ 48” Dual-Fuel Range. Dacor remains focused on designing and manufacturing ultra-premium, American-made products, and is committed to maintaining a southern California headquarters.

“Our products are a direct reflection of the craftsmanship of skilled associates and the resources provided by the Los Angeles region,” said President Steve Joseph. “Other companies see California’s complex business environment as a barrier, but for the past 50 years it has inspired us to be more innovative and resourceful.”

In contrast to the many businesses that have left the state, Dacor has used the pressure of California’s business environment to catalyze its efforts. The company recognizes the strategic importance of providing American-made products of the highest quality and has no plans to alter its operating structure – one that has stood the test of time and promoted growth for five decades.
