Hobart Warewash has received the Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI) Manufacturer of the Year award for 2017.

The distinction, which lasts for two years, was awarded for innovation in Hobart’s FTPi and FTNi flight type machines. Both are equipped with the unique, patented twinLINE system, which makes it possible to wash the usual ware in the machine, while trays are simultaneously washed on a separate conveyor without changing the footprint.

The result yields a time saving of some 30%, allied to a remarkable increase in capacity, according to the company.

Tim Bender, sales director at Hobart Warewashing UK, said: “We’re delighted to accept this award from the FCSI – confirmation that our efforts in never taking a backwards step in terms of innovation and R&D have been noted.”
