Nelbud, the country’s largest commercial kitchen ventilation service provider, makes Indianapolis home and announces a new leader and a new look

INDIANAPOLIS — Today marks a key milestone for Nelbud Services Group, Inc., the nation’s largest self-performing commercial kitchen ventilation services provider. Nelbud appoints a new president and CEO, Michael Crafton, formerly president of 360 Services, which merged with Nelbud in 2015. The company also announces a new centralized headquarters location, Indianapolis – where Crafton founded 360 Services – formally adopts the Nelbud name across the organization, and rebrands the collective effort to demonstrate a continued commitment to innovative services and technologies.

Over the past three years, Nelbud and 360 Services have combined several acquired companies under the Nelbud name to reflect a persistent dedication to safety, quality, and customer service. During that time, Nelbud has doubled its geographic footprint to serve 23 states with unparalleled reporting technology. Services include commercial kitchen exhaust system cleaning, maintenance, and repair, along with fire protection and grease trap pumping services. Nelbud is the only ISO 9001 certified hood cleaning company in the country and a founding member of the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association.

In describing the merger of Nelbud and 360 Services, Crafton said, “Nelbud has one of the most respected customer bases in the country and is known for consistent quality. Combined with the advantage of 360 Services’ industry-leading technology services, we are able to adapt to the market’s increasing desire for high-quality services delivered with speed, efficiency and reporting transparency.” Crafton succeeds Nelson Dilg, who founded Nelbud in Atlantic City in 1981. Dilg is retiring.

As the company takes on the Nelbud name organization-wide, the only change customers will see is to the logo. Today, the company launches its new brand — an updated website ( and a new logo, whose foundational element is a shield to represent protection, safety and responsibility.


Nelbud, headquartered in Indianapolis, is the country’s largest self-performing commercial kitchen exhaust system cleaning, maintenance and repair company and the industry’s only ISO 9001 certified company in the country. Learn more at
