Hoshizaki UK has named Steve Loughton (pictured) as its UK director.

As Hoshizaki and Gram UK will operate under the integrated Hoshizaki business name from the 1st January, Steve is set to take the reins of the combined organisation from outgoing MD Glenn Roberts.

Steve has spent almost four years as managing director at Jestic Foodservice Equipment. He has more than 40 years of foodservice sales and distributor experience.

With a proven record of driving profit growth, he has extensive knowledge of the EMEA and North American markets and is ready to embrace the challenge of growing Hoshizaki’s presence, both in the UK and Europe. 

Gram’s commercial director Paul Anderson will also take up a new role in January as Hoshizaki UK’s director of sales. Having worked with Gram for more than six years, Hoshizaki UK is looking forward to maximising Paul’s unrivalled knowledge as a key member of the senior team. In this new role he will continue to build the business’ distributor relationships and will head up the sales team as it continues to achieve business growth.

Glenn Roberts steps down as MD this December after 14 years with the business. A popular and well-regarded figure across the foodservice industry, he has also stepped up to CESA chair from vice chair in November, before taking up his position as professional sales director at BRITA UK in the new year.
