The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Rt Hon Liz Truss, and the Conservative MP for the local Waveney constituency, Peter Aldous, were among the guests of honour at the official opening of Adande’s new refrigeration test rooms, at Barley Way, Lowestoft, on Friday 8 July 2016.
It’s an Adande® with unique ‘Hold the Cold®’ technology; it works like no other fridge or freezer!
The EU Eco Design Regulation (Directive 2009/125/EC) will ensure that newly produced professional refrigerators and freezers will have to fulfil minimum energy efficiency requirements from 1st July 2016.
Adande has commissioned Bristol based test house Refrigeration Developments & Testing Limited (RD&T) to carry out independent tests comparing the performance of Adande drawers to “Foster-Flex drawers” available from Foster.
Adande are pleased to announce that from 8th February 2016, Doug Scully will be joining the International Sales team to grow the business further in the Asia Pacific area.
Adande’s presence continues to grow rapidly in global markets, with units based on its unique ‘hold the cold’ technology now being sold in many countries in Europe, The Middle East, India, Asia and Australia. Adande has production facilities in the UK and India, and their products are produced and sold under licence in the US. Overall sales have grown more than tenfold in the last six years.
Adande are delighted to announce real changes to its UK Sales Team. Consultants, Dealers and Customers can now benefit from Adande’s decision to invest in ‘boots on the ground’ following a successful strategy raising awareness in the market of their ‘Hold the Cold’ technology, and more importantly, delivering on our recognition in the industry as ‘redefining the undercounter refrigeration market’.
Adande’s Matchbox refrigerated drawer system was the winner of the ‘Refrigeration Product of the Year’ category at the 2016 National ACR Awards. The presentation of the award was made at a gala dinner held at the Town Hall, Birmingham, on 28 January 2016.
The Adande Matchbox system operates on hydrocarbon R600a refrigerant, which is a non-toxic chemical compound, demonstrating negligible ozone depletion characteristics and a very low global warming potential. Adande models operating on the hydrocarbon refrigerant are available at no additional capital cost. The system also features drawers which may be opened from either side of the unit, providing two or more chefs with simultaneous access to food stored in the drawers, for increased operational efficiency.
The heavy equipment category, sponsored by Hotelympia, is one of five supplier-focused accolades up for grabs at this year’s 20 awards.
Heavy equipment is at the heart of commercial kitchens, be it in the form of cooking equipment, refrigerators, warewashers or more. Therefore this award honours manufacturers and suppliers who have produced the most innovative heavy duty appliance for sale through the distributor channel over the past year.
Refrigeration specialist, Adande, has teamed up with sousvidetools.com to offer a range of workstations for the storage, preparation, cooking, blast chilling, reheating and service of food. Designed as totally integrated and self-contained solutions, the units are particularly suitable for fine dining, gastropubs, quick service restaurants, sports’ stadia, the leisure sector, outdoor mobile catering and any environment where there is a requirement for the fast service of quality hot food.
Refrigeration specialist, Adande, has announced a two pronged investment programme to grow its two key areas of business expertise. The company is committing equity funds to develop further global growth for its insulated drawer products, which are established as market leading refrigeration technology in the UK. Adande, together with its consortium partners, will also invest over £4 million in the further development of Aircell technology, which has been designed to improve the energy efficiency and operational performance of open front, refrigerated multi deck retail display cabinets. In addition to supporting business growth, the investment programmes will create additional job opportunities at the company’s Lowestoft factory and amongst trading partners.
