Equipment brand Polar Refrigeration has named Glenn Roberts as its global head of business.

Roberts, who will be based at the National Catering Equipment Centre in Bristol, will develop the brand while identifying new market opportunities.

He has experience in the refrigeration market after working at Japanese equipment business Hoshizaki Gram for 14 years and is currently chairman of the Catering Equipment Suppliers’ Association.

Polar Refrigeration is owned by catering equipment supplier Nisbets, which offers a range of commercial refrigerators, freezers, blast chillers and ice-makers.

Klaus Goeldenbot, group CEO of Nisbets, wished Roberts every success in his new role and said the move took Polar Refrigeration to the next stage in its development.
