Escher Mixers (stand P255) has recently opened a UK office and distribution warehouse in order to deal directly with UK customers. The company holds a large stock of mixers and spare parts, which are available for immediate delivery and offer 24-hour nationwide back-up service.

Escher exports to over 35 countries worldwide from its factory in Schio in Vicenza, Italy. The new UK operation is run by Mr Stephen Steadman. He has worked in the equipment side of bakeries for over 12 years mainly at Sainsbury’s where he was responsible for bakery equipment. He was also a director of Scobie & McIntosh Bakery Engineers.

The company has launched two machines to its range of removable bowl mixers. These have 80kg and 120kg capacities to supplement the larger 160kg and 200kg machines. The smaller machines offer good value for money and are aimed at giving better flexibility to the smaller industrial and large independent bakers, says Escher.
