CHR and Ecochef Open Day was a great success

CHR and Ecochef Open Day!

Two British companies working together to deliver manufacturing expertise and energy efficiency in the commercial kitchen environment with Ecochef.

For the last 5 years, Ecochef from Bamber Bridge in partnership with manufacturers Promart of Knowsley have been designing and installing energy efficient, induction cooking suites for clients from small independents, Michelin starred restaurants and large educational facilities.


By way of showcasing how they are creating these suites and the sustainable kitchens around them, they hosted an open day on Wednesday 21st September 2016 at the manufacturing site in Knowsley.


PACE members were invited along to see first-hand the new suites at various stages of production. Examples from Castle Dairy in Kendal, Swinton Park in Masham and the soon to open Moor Hall in Ormskirk were on show. Mark Birchall from Moor Hall was also on site to see his fully assembled new cooker.


Students from Riverside College joined the day to get a better understanding of the benefits of induction cooking and how it will be THE cooking method of the future.  The students and their tutor, Stephen Parkinson, also enjoyed a tour of the factory to see exactly how they design, build and finish by hand all the bespoke suites.


Stephen said of the event "It's great to see British design and manufacturing at the forefront of innovation.  I didn't know this was happening just down the road!"


The day was a great success, and it was fantastic to see so many people taking time out to support British manufacturing. Because of the success of the event Ecochef, Promart and CHR Equipment will be repeating the open day keep your eyes peeled for dates.


Paul Neville, MD of CHR Equipment/Ecochef said "It's heartwarming to see so many people from various sectors coming out to support what we're doing.  

Thanks to everyone that came along."
