Richard Ebbs has jumped the fence from distributor to manufacturer.

Synergy Grill has appointed Richard Ebbs as director for commercial and marketing as part of growth plans for the Cambridge-based manufacturer.

Following a successful career with Nisbets, Ebbs decided to accept the challenge of switching from distributor to a manufacturer.

He has been part of Nisbets for over 9 years and during this time was instrumental in driving forward the 30-strong own and exclusive brands (such as Polar, Buffalo and Olympia) whilst leading some of the company’s major projects such as setting up the National Catering Equipment Centre (NCEC) and product training.

Ebbs said: “I have loved being part of Nisbets in what has been a hugely successful time for the company and feel very proud of the work we have done in Uropa brands, product training and with the NCEC.

“I have no doubts that under Klaus Goeldenbot’s leadership, Nisbets will continue to grow and this is only the beginning of the company’s success, However, I felt it was right for me to accept this new challenge and very fortunate to be offered the role within Synergy Grill.”

Justin Cadbury, CEO of Synergy Grill, commented: “We are delighted that Richard has decided to join us. He has incredible experience of the industry and brings with him a wealth of knowledge that will help us drive Synergy Grill forward.

“Synergy Grill has patented fuel injection technology and will have the same effect on grills as fuel injection overtaking carburettors had in cars. It is the future. Several hundred restaurants already successfully depend on its reliability and superior performance and Richard is joining us at a perfect time to extend this new technology.”

Ebbs added, “Synergy Grill products are like nothing else available on the market today. They are the only grills that atomise fat. No fat means no filthy fat trays to empty, cutting down cleaning time by 80%.”
