The Marinator By Lyco Story

Ned Thornton

Ned Thornton has been working in the commercial food industry for more than 34 years. Ned’s story began in 1979 when he worked with a company which manufactured smokehouses for commercial meat and fish processors. The company wanted to add a vacuum tumbler to their product line for smaller processors. 

In 1984, Ned changed partners and Lyco Sales was incorporated. The company continued the vacuum food tumbler development, specializing in smaller models which have had an influence on the food industry. Lyco Sales’ 40 lb. capacity vacuum tumblers are used by university meat science professors, and in test kitchens of seasoning companies such as Everson Spice and large processors including Tyson and Pilgrim’s Pride. The vacuum food tumblers have also been used in grocery stores such as Winn Dixie and Supervalu, and restaurants including J. Alexander’s, Stoney River Legendary Steaks and Copeland’s.  All companies have found their meat, poultry, and fish to have improved taste, juiciness, and texture.

Our goal is for you to have a reliable, improved meat product that you will be able to serve or sell to your customers who will be consistently satisfied and pleased. Our passion is to see how our chefs vacuum meat and marinade tumbler results in a better quality of meat, and the consumer is able to enjoy better food at home, or in a restaurant.
