Alemite - Chicago, Illinois
First incarnation of their merchandiser & most rare
Produced during the War years, not many of these models were manufactured and shipped to dealerships.
Top windows, triple stainless trim, & round emblem
Not built for many years, the windows and trim on this series make it one of the more desirable Alemite models.
More simple, single wide stainless trim
Most common and highly produced Alemite model. Only one with an emblem on the center of the lower bench.
Alemite 1940 - 1944
With flat stainless trim and replaceable kick-plates on the corners, this model had doors on both sides of the center bench, and pockets behind for air equipment and other feed through needs. Similar back surround shapes as the Lincoln of this time. Alemite would not move to the circular surrounded "flying A" logo till late 1945. This model was possibly designed by Ladislav Sutnar.
Alemite 1945 - 1947
Only one of their models with a light up Ad glass section. Earliest 1945 models did not include the Alemite stamped top-center trim. Also these early benches had a straight pull-down door, not a 3-piece stepped type that all other Alemite models after 1945 posses. Some models have lower grade stainless trim that will not age well unless taken care of.
Alemite 1948 - 1955
Modular cabinet design, allowed benches to be arranged in lines together or simply two cabinets together. Clean lines with three new Alemite emblems. During the transitional years from 47-48 some benches were produced with an alternate round emblem and do not have a badge on the lower bench. Narrow units with no cabinets and a shorter more stout model were also produced.
