Hoskizaki innovation centre
To celebrate three decades of manufacturing from their Telford factory, Hoshizaki UK has invested £100,000 into a ‘state-of-the-art’ innovation and training centre.

The innovation centre not only acts as a showroom for customers to see Hoshizaki products in person, but also acts as a hub for key product demonstrations and training days. 

Simon Frost, managing director of Hoshizaki UK & Ireland, said: “When Hoshizaki first began manufacturing from Telford in 1994, we had around 20 employees and were producing an average of 20 units per day. Now, we have 175 employees at Telford, and the capacity to make over 130 units per day.

“Year-on-year, Hoshizaki UK continues to grow and evolve. We are committed to investing in our company and our customers, and our new innovation centre is a perfect example of putting words into action.”

Hoshizaki UK are working on a major factory expansion that will see the Telford site gain 40% more storage space, 230% increase in foaming areas for better flow and a projected production unit capacity of 50,000 units per year.
