History

THE COMPANY'S HISTORY

Especially at peak-periods reliability is the most important factor – in hotels, restaurants, old people’s homes canteens or motorway services. During long operating times and with changing coming-up of wash ware the CNA-series guarantees highest performance and best wash results. Every dishwasher needs water, energy and detergents. But it is the economical dealing, the effective usage and the constant energy recovery which makes the CNA top of the class regarding economy. Since DIN 10510 a hygienic wash result has been on demand – for HOBART products it has always been a must.

STORY OF SUCCESS

 At the beginning of its successful history HOBART acted rather in the background in Germany. The milestones were set abroad. For example the introduction of the world-famous planetary mixer in 1910; due to its unique stirring system it was sold more than one million times. Meat saws and mincers, kitchen aid etc. were added to the programme. Wherever food is prepared, served or sold, HOBART is with it.

STRIKING MARKET POSITION

And today? Hardly no institutional kitchen such as industry canteens, hospitals, universities hardly no hotel, restaurant, bakery, butchery or super market haven’t got faith in “a HOBART”, all over the world as well as in Germany. Among the technical suppliers HOBART has the top position regarding turnovers – according to an independent research of the German trade publisher. The introduction of the flight-type dishwashing-series FTN and the rack-type dishwasher CNR was a revolution regarding economy, hygiene and ergonomic.

WAREWASHING

To put it another way: the worldwide leader in the field of dishwashing has always made name of itself as innovative. In 1926 the introduction of the first commercial dishwasher made by HOBART was a real “key” event. And again on July 7, 1952 when HOBART received the patent for the first conveyor belt dishwasher. Now the foundation of HOBART’s success in Germany was laid. In 1960 HOBART took over the production of dishwasher from the Martin Company and became one of the most important employer in Offenburg.

LOCATION OFFENBURG

One innovation after the other. As a result: growth, growth, growth. The new production plant in Elgersweier was finished in 1981 and still there is a constant movement on the appr.15.000 m². Production units are steadily being extended and up-dated. Regarding production engineering, the company is one of the best in this industrial sector, today.  Laser-beam cutting technology, welding robots, fully-automatic depot and modern working methods give enough independence to every employee and support their creative potential. It goes without saying that everything is certified according ISO-9001 and Öko-Audit – quality and environmental awareness as credo.

METHODICAL SUCCESS IN THE FIELD OF PROJECT BUSINESS

Inventiveness and engineering skills are very much demanded. Again HOBART is innovative: in 1985 the first step were made towards project business. And even bigger steps were made: already in 1991 a production shed of 3.000 m² was built for semi- and fully-automatic ware washing systems and conveyor units.

Soon know-how and competence of the company located in Offenburg is very much demanded – now in canteens as well for example at the football stadium “Auf Schalke” or on cruise vessels like the “Arosa blu”, for industrial washing processes at Siemens or at airports, e.g. in Hong Kong.

Not only the speed but also ergonomics and ecology are main factors for the development. And we are always taking customers’ needs into consideration. As a result the new under-counter model FX was introduced to the market and new standards regarding hygiene and easy operating were set.

Innovative securing of the future

However, a one-hundred-year old company does not only look back to its traditions. A steady change in the past has created something of more importance: prospective thinking, continuity and a sense of market development. In order to extend the lead as a pioneer innovative strategies and trend-setting visions are necessary. For example: 80% of the dishwashing programme has been replaced by innovations.

This development is mainly caused by the American mother company ITW (IllinoisToolWorks), always ready to bring innovations ahead, always motivating to bring on economical development and so safe jobs can be guaranteed.
