Viessmann has started production of a new range of cold rooms aimed squarely at the catering market.
The retail refrigeration outfit hopes the “affordable” line will increase its business with private gastronomy customers, small restaurants, hotels and caterers.
The TECTOCompact line-up promises affordability and shorter lead times, allowing smaller customers requiring cold storage up to 3.6m x 6m to enjoy the qualities of its TECTO product range.
The standardised nature of the products allows Viessmann’s factory in Hof, Germany, to mass produce all parts of the cold room for the first time.
Viessmann said the products were available from stock, reducing the average lead time for installation.
The cold rooms are available in 300 mm x 300 mm increments between 1200mm and 6000mm.
Jim Whelan, director of international business at Viessmann, called it an “off-the-shelf” cold room and said that as it requires no timely planning and specification progress, the cost of production is reduced without compromising the quality.
“After in-depth market analysis, we spotted a gap in the market for a lower priced, quality cold room,” he said.
Whelan added that Viessmann could now offer a competitively priced product for a wider market of private buyers and low budget projects.
“The product is perfect for those who need a cold room quickly and are keen to benefit from Viessmann’s increased energy efficiency and great customer service levels,” he said.
