Lynn’s Foster Refrigerator is celebrating after winning a major refrigeration industry award for its new low maintenance condenser.

Foster was nominated alongside sister brand, Gamko, for the Refrigeration Product of the Year award, at this year’s ACR News Awards, set up to honour technological and environmental successes in the sector. But it was Foster which scooped the title, presented at a ceremony in Birmingham last week.

Foster won the Refrigeration Product of Year category for its new +stayclear condenser which hit the market in December 2015, and is designed to help dramatically reduce maintenance costs of professional food refrigerators. Gamko, which makes professional-standard drinks coolers for bars and restaurants, was shortlisted for its ECO-Line E3 Drinks Cooler, launched recently.

Foster and Gamko head of marketing Nick Bamber said: “We are delighted with this award win – what a night for our brands. Foster and Gamko pride themselves on the market-leading innovative technologies we develop and bring to the market, and such awards successes are testament to the work our skilled team do to ensure the success of both brands.” Foster design engineer Peter Waterman is pictured centre receiving the award ACR News award with comedian Jon Culshaw.
