Hoshizaki’s Andy Buggé celebrates silver anniversary in the industry

Hoshizaki is delighted to congratulate Area Sales Manager, Andy Buggé, on 25 years in the industry.

The paths that have led Andy up to this career pinnacle began back in 1988 when he received his HND in Hotel, Catering & Institutional Management, leading him to fulfil various managerial roles in the industry with career highlights including managing a busy pub in Bristol, becoming Duty Manager at Heathrow Airport (Terminal 4) and heading up the Queens Building staff canteen.

Andy then stepped out of the serving area, and into the thick of catering equipment sales where he began his career with Nelson Catering Equipment before joining Hoshizaki, who in Andy’s words ‘are always striving for the best’:

“I feel very lucky to have worked in the catering equipment industry for 25 years, and even more so, I am grateful to both Nelson Catering Equipment and Hoshizaki for the opportunities they have provided me. The entire Hoshizaki team are a pleasure to work with. Not only do Simon and Roz provide the sales team with great support, but also trust so that we can make our own decisions. As a team, we are always striving for the best both from a product and dealer point of view.”

Andy rounds-off:

“Ask any salesman, and they will tell you that selling a good product is half of the battle – and with Hoshizaki, you know you are getting the very best. In fact, with the new Premier line of cabinets and counters, Hoshizaki are sure to become a force to be reckoned with.”

Simon Frost , Director of UK & Ireland, was pleased to offer his congratulations to Andy:

“Those that know Andy know that he is an absolute natural when it comes to sales – and over the years – has helped Hoshizaki UK secure some fantastic contracts and sites.

We at Hoshizaki UK feel very lucky to have him on our team, and would like to congratulate him on this fantastic milestone.”
