Hobart is lending more support to the public sector by rolling back its 2020 equipment prices to those set during 2019, and then freezing them for the foreseeable future.
Fluid manufacturing costs mean that each year the public sector faces a price increase for Hobart’s equipment. In the wake of the Covid-19 crisis, however, the manufacturer has taken the decision to roll back the 2020 rise and hold prices set in 2019 to help the segment recover.
The price rollback pledge is part of a package of support unveiled by Hobart’s Business Support Unit, formed as the coronavirus took hold.
The wave of measures are intended to support operators in every phase of the restart, from de-mothballing equipment through to discounts on new machines as well as 12 and 24-month interest-free payment plans.
Tim Bender, sales director, Hobart Equipment Division said: “Undoubtedly, the public sector has been decimated by Covid-19 and is in need of support from its supplier partners. This is an institution that we know and love to serve, so it’s only right that we do all we can to back sectors such as education and healthcare in any way possible. This rollback pledge is part of a wider restart initiative aimed at getting kitchens back on their feet.”
