A quest to find the oldest Maidaid machine still in operation in the UK has been launched by the warewashing manufacturer to mark its 40th year in business.
The company is calling on distributors and industry partners to help it locate the catering business that is running the oldest Maidaid dishwasher in the market today.
The winning site will win a brand new dishwasher from the company’s latest ‘Evolution’ range.
Maidaid sold its first dishwasher in the UK back in September 1974 to The Bull in Gerrard’s Cross, Buckinghamshire.
Since then it has sold machines to customers throughout the catering and pub markets via the distributor channel.
Maidaid says it has “put a great deal of research” into the Evolution line, with the focus on creating more energy efficient machines that utilise improved water filtration, drainage, wash and rinse pumps, and electronic controls.
Julian Lambert, sales director at Maidaid, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating 40 years in the warewashing industry and it shows the company has continually evolved to meet the demands of our customers and provide not only reliable machines but an effective after-sales service to keep your kitchen functioning in a profitable and environmentally considerate way.”
Distributors with customers operating older versions of Maidaid dishwashers can stake their client’s claim for the Evolution dishwasher by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0845 130 8070.
The deadline for entries will close on 31 January 2015.
