One of the world’s largest commercial refrigeration and ice machines manufacturers has expanded its UK stock holding capabilities in a bid to cope with the expected peaks in business over the summer.
In preparation for its busy season, Hoshizaki has announced it is utilising the 66,000 sqft warehousing facility in Telford, a site that totals 118,000 sqft with a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
Director of sales and chain accounts at Hoshizaki UK, Simon Frost, said: “We have identified the most popular units from right across our refrigeration and ice machine portfolio, dedicating a substantial area of our warehouse facilities to these appliances. This means that we can ensure a level of stock in the UK, which will dramatically reduce delivery times and allow us as a business to manage an efficient supply and logistics operation.”
Including units in the Compact, Snowflake and Standard Plus range, ready-to-ship stock is available in the most common formats, will be more readily available as a result of the increased stock holding strategy.
The appliances not held in stock are also expected to see an uplift in availably thanks to the integration of the Hoshizaki and Gram teams in the UK and the implementation of a new IT system at the start of the year.
