Following Falcon’s recent F900 series launch, distributors have been giving the thumbs up to the selection of 900mm-wide modular cooking equipment.
The range can be linked together via the Dynamic Link System, which is said to combine the flexibility of modular systems with the looks and hygiene benefits of one-piece island suites.
Mark Kendall, project director at Inox Equip, said: “The interlocking mechanism was, for me, the standout thing in a very strong product."
He also recognised the importance of bringing new UK manufactured product to market. “Within our industry we have a very busy period between July to September, which can make supply difficult as European manufacturers tend to close for holidays during that period. Having British products available will make it easier for dealers, specifiers and manufacturers.”
Yvonne Martin, MD of Equipt to Cook agreed: “It’s great that we’ve got a British company investing money in new products,” she said.
Iain Munro, MD of ScoMac Catering Equipment thinks these features will make it a popular choice. “Most professional kitchens are looking for equipment with nice, smooth lines and something that’s easy to keep hygienic. The F900 and its Dynamic Linking System undoubtedly delivers that; it’s clearly going to be popular.”
The early signs are that Falcon has a hit on its hands, which is music to the ears of Tim Tindle, Falcon’s MD. “I’m biased but I’d say the launch has gone extremely well, everybody seems enthusiastic and we’ve got a great opportunity to take our business forward into new sectors,” he said.
