GDPA has unleashed a series of British-built auto-fill water boilers that form part of a major product expansion strategy made possible by a recent factory upgrade.
In what the company has billed as one of the “biggest announcements” in its history, the first of the new Burco water boilers with built-in water filtration rolled off the production line earlier this month.
The launch of the auto-fill line kicks off what is set to be a significant product enhancement strategy for GDPA over the next couple of years.
As well as striving to gain a greater share of the commercial boiler water segment, where it believes there is still plenty of room for growth, GDPA is planning to develop additional cooking products that broaden the coverage of the Burco brand.
The company recently moved the manufacture of its commercial catering equipment to a new dedicated area within its existing Merseyside plant after space became available. The 12,000 square foot unit has been modified to accommodate the production of the auto-fill range as well as future build plans.
“GDPA is a company renowned for manufacturing quality Burco water boilers within the commercial market. The launch of the new range of British manufactured Auto-fill Filtration Hot Water Boilers will only strive to reinforce that message to the consumer,” said commercial product manager Diane Ho.
GDPA hopes that the addition of some key new features to the auto-fill line will win over operators.
For a start, the water filter can be accessed from the front panel to make replacement easy, while a clear LCD display issues an alert when the filer needs changing and allows users to quickly and easily adjust the water temperature to the desired setting.
The menu is also pre-programed with 10 languages including, Urdu, Hindi and Mandarin Chinese, making the appliance ideal for sites where English is not the operator’s first language. There are a variety of both countertop and wall mounted models in the range, with tank capacities ranging from between 5 litres and 20 litres.
