    New Horizon Elite Ice Machine Reduces Costs, Saves Water

  • Industry News May 5, 2016

    Follett Corporation is excited to announce the launch of its new award-winning Horizon Elite ice machines. Horizon Elite 1010 and 1410 series Chewblet ice machines have a revolutionary new water management design that offers foodservice operators a low cost of ownership and superior performance even in the most challenging water conditions. Horizon Elite’s design dramatically reduces scale build up in ice machines and the associated costs of scale mitigation, all while remaining very water efficient.

    “Horizon Elite Chewblet ice machines incorporate breakthrough technology that takes ice machines to the next level of performance,” says president and CEO Steve Follett. “In scale-prone waters, Horizon Elite ice machines can save operators significant cost by doubling or tripling the time between required cleaning and descaling, and they can use less than half the water required by similar sized cube-type ice machines. With an overall decrease in both water availability and water quality across the country, Horizon Elite represents a huge win for operators and for the industry.”

    The benefits of this innovative design have already been recognized by major industry associations. National Restaurant Association (NRA) awarded Horizon Elite a 2016 Kitchen Innovations (KI) Award and the Foodservice Consultants International Society (FCSI) named Horizon Elite its runner-up as 2016 FCSI Product of the Year.

    Founded in 1948, Follett Corporation is a leading manufacturer of ice-related equipment, including ice machines, ice storage and transport equipment, ice, and beverage and ice and water dispensing equipment for foodservice and healthcare markets worldwide.
