A turning point in history
Creation of Blendtec was with the advent of innovations that turned the common mixer into what we call today Smart Blender.
It all started with Tom Dickson who pioneered the science of smart blending by giving technique, shape and direction to how ice could be blended with frozen ingredients into the modern smoothie.
Such an event became the turning point to the modern smoothie, juice and foodservice industry, as we know it. The modern smart blending industry is not a competitor, it is an emulator of Blendtec’s history of creations.
