Meiko UK Managing Director Paul Anderson congratulates the ‘Top-Hotel’ magazine publisher for highlighting the issue of true quality.
Top Hotel is a trade magazine covering hotels worldwide. Every year it presents its ‘Tophotel Star Awards’, where readers vote online for their choice of the most innovative products and services. In 2020, Meiko Ergonomics won a Silver Star Award.
“There are many manufacturers of dishwashing products,” says Anderson, “but no matter how good the machine itself, the key issue that affects customers is how that product is supported in the field in terms of design, installation, commissioning and ongoing maintenance.
“An F1 racing car is the finest product of its type; but it won’t work for long without a good team behind it. From its very formation in the early 1990s, Meiko has put customer service first, rather than simply selling a product. That means providing good ergonomic design, superb technical support and ensuring every dishwashing project is actively managed to get the best result for the customer.
“The team at Meiko’s manufacturing plant in Offenburg, Germany are to be congratulated for recognizing the role that customer service plays in the delivery and operation of Meiko product by Meiko UK and our Partner Distributors.
“It’s about time for dishwashing ergonomics and technical support to be recognised for the contribution they make to foodservice kitchens.”
Meiko’s experts in warewashing, cleaning and disinfection technology celebrated winning the Top-Hotel silver trophy. The award is extra special because the honour was not awarded for a machine but a service that meets a current need: Meiko Ergonomics.
Björn Geromiller, Head of Key Account Management for Caterers, Hospitals and Student Unions at MEIKO Germany and lead contact for Ergonomics explains: “We are thrilled with this award. This is a difficult time for the entire industry and now especially, hygiene is critical for how we move forward. To get that right, you need more than just reliable machinery. You also need reliable, economical and ergonomically sound processes in the dishwashing area.”
The role of Meiko Ergonomics centres on efficiently organising dishwashing areas in commercial kitchens. This and hygiene are crucial. The bigger the kitchen, the more tasks, employees and appliances there are to manage. Then there is variation in peak hours. That is tough on staff and machines alike. Seamless processes in the dishwashing area therefore make all the difference – in terms of the return on your investment (ROI), too.
A well planned and organised kitchen makes optimum use of space, protects employee health and boosts productivity. All of that will pay off in general. But in a crisis, it could be what makes the business viable – even for existing commercial kitchens.
