South Australian drink dispensing machinery manufacturer, Hoshizaki Lancer has won a major contract with Carlton and United Breweries (CUB), to provide maintenance and repair services to 20,000 venues including bars, clubs, hotels and liquor stores across the nation.
The contract has now made Hoshizaki Lancer Australia’s largest beer system maintenance and repair service provider.
Managing director of Hoshizaki Lancer, Joe Thorp said that the CUB contract is the largest single repair and maintenance agreement Lancer has signed and will add several million dollars to company’s turnover.
“Lancer already provides repair and maintenance services to other brewers and individual customers, but, this contract has turbo-charged our business,” said Thorp.
Thorp said that the company has taken on 30 additional staff across Australia to meet demand from metropolitan and country customers.
“It’s also accelerated plans to vertically integrate our business and provide a “onestop- shop” for turnkey supply, installation and maintenance of beverage dispense equipment," said Thorp.
“All of the beverage systems we supply our customers are produced at our Adelaide factory, so we are able to provide rapid, specialist response when issues arise.”
