Jestic Foodservice Equipment has widened its product range by striking a distribution agreement with conveyor oven manufacturer Edge Ovens.
The deal gives Jestic exclusivity of the US-made equipment in both the UK and European markets.
The ovens are manufactured in Pennsylvania and are widely used by large chains and independent operators in the US. Jestic will seek to introduce them to similar businesses this side of the Atlantic.
Steve Morris, sales director at Jestic Foodservice Equipment, said: “The whole Jestic team were highly impressed by the quality of the Edge ovens when we were first introduced to them so to be able to now present this superior quality to our own customers is extremely exciting.
“All Edge Ovens are manufactured from fully formed stainless steel and welded (rather than riveted) to give additional strength, whilst their use of high quality components along with a well-engineered, simple design, means that Edge Ovens don’t just offer outstanding performance, but are also simple to install, maintain and service.”
All the Edge series of conveyor ovens feature a patented ‘iHeat’ burner system, which by precisely controlling both gas and combustion air is able to attain maximum energy efficiency, creating the perfect burn at all times to reduce gas consumption.
Independent tests undertaken by the Food Service Technology Centre on behalf of state of California rated it the most efficient gas conveyor oven on the market.
