The world’s largest food store equipment manufacturing facility reportedly is for sale. The Reuters News Service reports Bridgeton-based Hussman is for sale. It’s now owned by Ingersoll-Rand, based in Ireland. The price is something under $1 billion dollars, more than one-half billion dollars less than Ingersoll Rand paid for it 11 years ago. 

Hussman was founded in St. Louis 105 years ago.
