The appointment comes following a recent strategic review by ALI Group of the Dawson business and the decision to reposition and refocus the UK distribution of its Comenda warewash products, along with the other brands currently traded by Dawson.
“Hubbard Systems and the ALI Group already have a strong commercial partnership with the exclusive distribution of Scotsman ice makers, and we welcome this exciting opportunity to further develop our position in the UK market,” says Simon Aspin, commercial director of Hubbard Systems.
From 5th June 2017 all Comenda products and spare parts will be distributed by Hubbard Systems. All products which are still under warranty, or were bought with an extended service package, will be managed by Hubbard, in conjunction with Service Line who will fulfil the service obligations to ensure there is no loss of continuity during the transition.
Comenda has an exceptional reputation, with a full range of machines from small under counter glasswashers right up to special-build rack and flight machines, selling several thousand units per year globally.
Hubbard aims to build the Comenda brand in the UK by working closely with the Comenda factory on larger schemes, and taking the same approach with Comenda as with the Scotsman brand, maintaining high levels of customer support and product availability.
