Victor Manufacturing’s refrigerated Optimax retail merchandising unit has won praise from the FCSI for its energy efficient credentials.
The company was “highly commended” in this year’s FCSI Sustainable Catering Equipment Award, which was announced at the recent CESA conference.
The award is given for commitment in the production of sustainable energy saving catering equipment and one of the most sought after commendations in the industry, according to Victor.
Victor’s winning unit, the Optimax RMR100E refrigerated assisted service display cabinet, is part of an extensive range of merchandisers that includes heated and ambient models.
The firm’s refrigerated units keep chilled air within the cabinet when the rear doors are opened thanks to a drop-down/lift-up rear, load-bearing door that Victor devised. It is engineered to open in such a way to channel cold air under the middle shelf thus minimising the loss of chilled air.
The commendation was presented by the FCSI’s UK chairman, David Bentley, to Victor’s managing director Mick Shaddock.
