Instanta

Instanta

Instanta products have been manufactured in Southport, Merseyside since 1957. Throughout this time their objective has been to produce top quality, innovative products that offer real value for money and deliver unrivalled reliability.

By buying Instanta products you get the care and attention you deserve from a long-established UK manufacturer. Robust and durable, built and engineered for the commercial environment with high grade components and stainless steel used throughout the product range.

Instanta use the latest technology with much of their production utilising CNC machining centres, punch-presses, folding equipment, automatic placement in electronics manufacture and mechanical handling equipment. However, the products are still “hand-made” as such, and human labour is still very much a critical part of the manufacturing process. Despite competition from cheap imports, Instanta have continued to succeed through a combination of innovation, high quality, service and value for money.

Instanta products are available through Zip Water – market leaders in the drinking water industry and part of the wider Culligan Group.

Adande Refrigeration Ltd

Adande Refrigeration Ltd

A Drawer Like No Other…

It’s true that refrigerated storage is essential to any type of kitchen and depending on the type and complexity of the operation Adande has manufactured a range of models to meet most, if not all the demands of the modern foodservice operation.

Suppliers are driven by fulfilling the unique needs of challenging customer necessities, as well as navigating problems due to increased pressure on kitchen space, ergonomics & optimising stock and workflow for efficiency.

With an extensive range of modular drawer types, Adande’s Hold the Cold® technology is more relevant than ever. The fundamental difference in technology coupled with the design of the insulated container ensures cold air stays with the food despite frequent opening, resulting in – temperature stability, improved food quality, longer shelf life for food, less food waste and lower energy use – No competitor product matches this performance!

Add to that fridge-to-freezer convenience (precise incremental control by degree from -22°C to +15°C) with modular options whether stand alone or within a range or cooking suite, the Shallow, Blast Chill or Matchbox drawers conceive ultimate flexibility from a single 13 amp plug.

Multiple industry and foodservice awards testify to the technology and the benefits add up – not only in terms of innovation, but moreover with energy efficiency, robustness, and sustainability too.

Karl Hodgson, Adande’s Sales Director, is adamant of its benefits to the industry and case studies are available from aficionados of Adande products from different sectors of the foodservice industry each giving their unique take on how they utilise Adande equipment in their own operations – from Michelin star to QSR.

“We’re always extolling the DIFFERENCE in technology and performance, but Adande drawers are as versatile and innovative as the unique Chefs using them, and that really is a good comparison too!” says Karl.

There are ongoing benefits, of course, often overlooked, that are beyond the patented technology – for instance, customers profit from low operating costs, but also from optimum ergonomic efficiency, space saving worktop and ease of access/replenishment and drawer management convenience.

Add to that the strength and durability of the drawer runners (isolated from freezing air), together with patented horizontal magnetic heated seals (with a 2 year warranty); and it’s easy to appreciate the thoughtful product design that minimises key component exposure to damage and the accumulation of debris, thus contributing to a fully refurbishable lifecycle aiding customer sustainability targets.

Karl Hodgson, summarised, “2017 saw Adande recognised and awarded both in the UK and internationally.
2018 will see more development and innovation to complement the range providing sustainable refrigeration technologies that meet real customer needs in food storage, display and service.”
