Hobart has reaffirmed that public sector customers won’t face an increase in equipment costs when they purchase its products.
The company has rolled back its 2020 equipment prices to 2019 levels and frozen them for the foreseeable future.
Fluid manufacturing costs mean that each year the public sector faces a price rise for Hobart’s equipment.
In the wake of the Covid-19 crisis, however, the manufacturer said it was reversing that increase to give healthcare and education sites in particular, the breathing space to recover.
The price roll-back pledge is part of a comprehensive package of support being unveiled by Hobart’s Business Support Unit, formed as the coronavirus took hold.
The wave of measures support operators in every phase of the restart, from de-mothballing equipment through to substantial discounts on new machines as well as advantageous 12 and 24-month interest-free payment plans.
Tim Bender, sales director at Hobart Equipment Division, said: “Undoubtedly, the public sector has been decimated by Covid-19 and is in need of support from its supplier partners.
“This is an institution that we know and love to serve, so it’s only right that we do all we can to back sectors such as education and healthcare in any way possible. This roll-back pledge is part of a wider restart initiative aimed at getting kitchens back on their feet.”
