Hobart wins Best of Market accolade at top German industry awards

Hobart has landed an unprecedented fourth consecutive honour at one of Germany’s most prized industry awards, Best of Market.

The company’s new generation undercounter warewashers have been lauded for their innovation by readers of influential German out-of-home trade magazines, ‘GVmanager’, ‘First Class’, ’24 Stunden Gastlichkeit’ and ‘FOODBusiness’, with the award given in the ‘process optimisation’ category.

This is the second such award in as many months for Hobart’s newest range of warewashers, following it receiving a coveted iF Design Award, a world-renowned mark of excellence, given for functionality and aesthetic, and judged by an international panel of over 60 design experts.

Hobart’s Tim Bender, Sales Director, Hobart Equipment Division, commented, “We’re so proud that our undercounter range has been recognised yet again for its innovation and the way in which its functionality simplifies the washing process at every step.

'It’s also fantastic to have our range recognised by the very people it has been designed to benefit – end users. Our thanks go out to everyone who took the time to vote. These types of commendations only serve to strengthen our dedication to pushing the boundaries of R&D.”

Hobart’s new generation of smart undercounter warewashers are now available through the company’s UK wide network of dealer partners.

The new glass and dishwasher models benefit from four key innovations, helping to drastically cut drying times, enhance and simplify the user experience, improve efficiencies across the board and for the first time provide a fully connected wash experience, by way of Hobart’s innovative new WashSmart app.

Hobart UK has now aligned its Warewash and Cooking divisions into one single sales and administration operation known simply as the Hobart Equipment Division.
