Fracino has made four new appointments as part of a multi-million pound investment programme to boost business which will see its 45,000 sq ft production facility extended.
David Bushell, Gary Cutler and Sergei Vlad are working on the production line with Sam Grew joining the design team of one of the UK’s only manufacturer of traditional espresso machines.
At the end of 2018, the multi-award winning manufacturer boosted its front line customer support with a hat trick of appointments across its service and sales departments.
Fracino’s product portfolio includes a range of coffee machines including the fully automatic bean-to-cup Cybercino machine, hand fill compact machines and a range of traditional espresso machines.
It also extends to coffee grinders, dishwashers, glass washers, ice machines a coffee roaster and range of water boilers.
Formative developments are in the pipeline for 2019 when Fracino’s multi-million pound investment programme will see its production site further extended.
Eighty-five per cent of components are fabricated in-house via state-of-the-art laser cutting, pressing, folding, welding and finishing equipment and bespoke CAD technology.
A decade after launching an export arm from scratch, Fracino exports to over 70 countries worldwide with increased orders from countries including the Czech Republic, Denmark, Chile, New Zealand and El Salvador.
Fracino has achieved double-digit sales growth almost every year since 2009.
Head of global sales, Peter Atmore, who is a board member of both Made in Britain and the Beverage Standards Association, said: “We’re extremely proud of the fact that we operate one of the world’s most advanced and efficient espresso equipment manufacturing facilities and warmly welcome David, Gary, Sergei and Sam on board.
“Innovating and investing in cutting-edge equipment and in recruiting, training and developing our hard-working team remain our top priorities as Fracino continues to go from strength to strength.”
