Hoshizaki America is targeting growth under new leadership following the appointment of James McDowell Jr. as president.
Most recently serving as president of Jackson Warewashing Systems, his excellent leadership increased sales revenue and profitability while maintaining strong policy and regulatory compliance.
McDowell Jr.’s experience in the foodservice industry with companies such as Manitowoc and Enodis, coupled with his strong performance within the Hoshizaki Group Companies, will be invaluable as the ice machine and refrigeration manufacturer bids to enhance its business.
His appointment comes as the brand continues to expand its product range.
Earlier in the month, Hoshizaki America announced the addition of half glass doors to its upright Steelheart series refrigerators and freezers.
The 27.5-inch-wide single section cabinet holds up to 23.1 cubic feet of interior storage. While the 55-inch-wide two section models boast an industry leading capacity of 50.37 cubic feet. Three section models will be added later this year.
