MIAMI, FL and NUSCO, Italy, May 15, 2009 -- Arctic Industries, Inc. / Desmon USA has received the prestigious Kitchen Innovations 2009 Award presented by the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show. The award was given to Arctic for its Desmon USA professional line of “knock-down” refrigeration units. The “knock-down” (unassembled) units allow for installation in previously inaccessible areas.
Miami-based Arctic Industries formed Desmon USA in 2008 to serve as the exclusive North American distributor of Desmon Professional Refrigeration. The Italy-based Desmon is one of the leading manufacturers in the world for reach-ins, under-counters, pizza and pastry worktables and other specialty equipment. The company currently exports to 80 countries.
“We are honored to be recognized by the National Restaurant Association for this unique new addition to our refrigeration systems,” says Donald Goodstein, president of Arctic Industries and Desmon USA. “This innovative line of “knock-down” units will benefit our foodservice dealers and operators by providing them with a variety of choices where before they were limited.”
Corrado de Santis, president of Desmon, Italy, adds “We believe our innovation and technology are critical components in delivering refrigeration solutions to our customers. Our “knock-down” products have been successfully serving our customers in Europe and Asia for the past several years. Desmon USA allows us to bring that same success to our friends in the United States.”
Both groups are enthusiastic about leveraging Desmon USA’s proven marketing, customer service and distribution relationships with Desmon Italy’s innovative products and quality manufacturing.
The award-winning Desmon products will be showcased at the Kitchen Innovations pavilion at the 2009 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show® at Chicago's McCormick Place, May 16-19.
