Panasonic Corporation has announced a new global trading agreement with Regale Microwave Ovens Ltd that will see the Microsave Cavity Liner distributed around the world.
Global arrangements will be positioned to enable distribution of the Liner, via Regale, a national, commercial microwave wholesaler, to any catering equipment wholesaler or distributor worldwide. The Liner will be available either fitted within a Panasonic microwave oven, or on its own, where previously only operators purchasing directly from Regale could obtain the piece of kit, designed to prolong the life of a microwave by making it easier to clean.
Barry Clark, technical R&D director of Regale Microwave Ovens Ltd, said: “This is great news for Regale. We are very proud to be associated with Panasonic and to see that our hard work over the past few years has been recognised by such a top-quality company that produces the finest quality commercial microwave ovens worldwide. We recognised that commercial kitchens were using their microwaves for more than just re-heating and defrosting and identified that certain breakdowns were occurring on a regular basis, such as burnt ceiling plates, cracked base plates and penetration by grease into working parts. These breakdowns are not covered by manufacturers’ guarantees, and the cost for repair lies with the operator, so we invented the Microsave as way to help operators avoid down time and costly repairs.
“This trading agreement will enable us to access a much wider audience of international, national and local catering equipment distributors and builds on our relationship with Panasonic.”
