Hobart Cooking and Warewash to merge and become the Hobart Equipment Division

Hobart UK has announced that its Warewash and Cooking divisions have become one single sales and administration operation known as the Hobart Equipment Division.

The core focus will be to leverage new commercial opportunities and to develop and strengthen relationships with all external partners and create a larger and more effective sales force to increase, improve and strengthen the number of active sales contacts across the whole market.

The merge will also see new appointments within the sales development team. The new organisation will be run by the existing directors, while David Riley will continue as managing director and head up the newly formed organisation. Iain Munro takes on the wider role of business development director encompassing the National Account Team, the Projects Department and the newly appointed Product Specialists, while Tim Bender will maintain his role as sales director with the regional operations, including Hobart Independent.

“The joining of the two divisions will have a synergistic effect as we utilise the abilities of our team to maximum effect,” said Riley. “We will be able to optimise our sales efforts ensuring our customers obtain the most value from dealing with Hobart.”
