Having bagged a hat trick of awards to round off an excellent 2014, Gram's SUPERIORPLUS 72 has added more trophies to its growing collection of awards, with the Hospitality Show's People's Choice award, the Casual Dining Innovation Challenge Gold award, and the ScotHot New Product Bronze award.
With 2015 already following the success of 2014, the energy efficient refrigeration manufacturer is shaping up for another big year in the catering equipment industry.
Buoyed by winning FCSI Sustainable Equipment Award 2014, The Caterer Product Excellence Award 2014, and Catering Insight's Equipment of the Year 2014 award, Gram went to the Hospitality Show with high hopes of adding to its collection. This time round, the award was the Hospitality Show's Star Product Award, of which the Gram SUPERIORPLUS 72 had been shortlisted as one of the Show's Top Ten products, an achievement in itself.
Out of the TopTen finalists, the SUPERIORPLUS 72 was highly commended in the Star Product Award, for its revolutionary design and energy efficiency. As well as earning the commendation of the judges, the SUPERIORPLUS 72 also won the People's Choice Award. This award was decided by the public, who voted for their favourite TopTen product via Twitter by using the hashtag #starproduct.
Following the Hospitality Show, Gram headed to the Casual Dining Show at the Business Design Centre in London, with its eye on the Casual Dining Innovation Challenge. These awards were designed to highlight the very best innovative products from the industry, and visitors were given the opportunity to vote on what they thought was the best product in the Innovation Challenge Showcase. The top 10 finalists were asked to pitch their ideas to a panel of industry experts, resulting in the ‘Innovation Challenge Awards'. Gram SUPERIORPLUS walked away with the Gold award, receiving the most votes from the visitors of the show, who were impressed by the unit's outstanding energy efficiency and innovative design.
Finally, the ScotHot New Product Awards came around, and Gram had high hopes of scoring another win with the SUPERIORPLUS. Once again, the refrigeration cabinet impressed visitors and judges alike, and Gram scooped a coveted Bronze Award at the show.
The Gram SUPERIORPLUS 72 provides operators with the most sustainable refrigeration available on the market. Its innovative technology sees it offer ground-breaking levels of energy efficiency meaning that it is 39% more efficient than its previous best-in-class predecessor. Part of Gram's SUPERIORPLUS 72 success is due to the fact that the product's energy usage has drastically fallen to 310kW/year, which means reduced running costs for operators. Gram has also included its five-year parts and labour warranty with this product, so operators can be confident that they can rely on their investment in the long-term.
Glenn Roberts, managing director at Gram UK, commented: "We had a brilliant year last year, winning three awards, and adding three more awards to our growing collection is a truly fantastic start to 2015. Winning these awards reaffirms that our product is right for the market, especially as two of these accolades relied on a public vote. This reinforces our standing in the refrigeration industry, and demonstrates that our innovations are being well received by the end users".
