Jonathan Mellor has followed the Comenda warewasher brand from Dawson Food Service Equipment to Hubbard Systems, following the latter’s appointment as UK supplier of the brand by The Ali Group.
Mellor was previously technical sales manager at Dawson for 2 years when the Barnsley-based firm supplied Comenda to the UK market. He will now perform the same role for Hubbard.
He has 20 years’ experience in commercial dishwashing, also working with Hobart during his career.
Hubbard Systems’ commercial director Simon Aspin revealed: “We aim to offer the same level of customer support for Comenda as we do for Scotsman icemakers. That means recruiting the top experts in the industry – and Jonathan certainly fits the bill.”
Mellor is relishing his new role: “Hubbard Systems is established and forward-thinking. The company has the infrastructure to deliver excellent customer support and to move the Comenda brand back to the position in the market it once enjoyed.
“I’ve spent the last 2 years working with the Comenda factory in Milan and I know the brand’s plans – the future looks very bright, and we will have big opportunities to grow the business in the catering industry.
“I look forward to catching up with old acquaintances and making many new ones.”
Mellor will work primarily on sales of rack and flight dishwashers, as well as utensil washers, assisting in the design and technical specification of large warewashing schemes.
Outside of work, Mellor enjoys golfing, skiing and supporting Leeds United FC. He is married with two grown-up children.
