Lincat launches Opus 800 range of heavy duty catering equipment
Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial catering equipment, is set to introduce its new Opus 800 range of heavy-duty prime cooking equipment. Available now to pre-order from Lincat, production of the Opus 800 range of ovens, fryers, griddles, grills and bratt pans will be phased in during July. The with no fewer than 79 individual products, together with a full range of options and accessories, Opus 800 is Lincat’s largest new product launch for almost 20 years.
Larger, heavier and more powerful than the Opus 700 range it will replace, Opus 800 is designed, engineered and manufactured by Lincat to deliver enhanced performance and energy efficiency. With a stylish, streamlined look, Opus 800 products can be configured in a greater number of ways to meet the needs of the busiest commercial kitchen. They offer increased capacity, are safe and easy to use, quick to clean and straightforward to service.
“Opus 700 has been hugely successful for Lincat. Specified by major chains including Greene King, Marstons, JD Wetherspoons and Sainsbury’s, Opus 700 has, since its launch in 1999, sold over 31,000 units and generated over £51M for Lincat,” said Helen Applewhite, Marketing Manager of Lincat.
“So we set ourselves quite a challenge when we decided to review and improve the range. We began by listening to feedback from our distributors and customers, which provided a very clear set of design priorities for our in-house research and development team. The resulting range offers clear power and performance advantages over competitor products and received a tremendous reception, as a result, at the Commercial Kitchen Show.”
Each piece of equipment in the new Opus 800 range is covered by a comprehensive two-year on-site parts and labour warranty. Lincat Ltd manufactures one of the world’s most comprehensive ranges of catering equipment. Products are sold in the UK and in over 50 countries worldwide through a comprehensive network of distributors. Lincat Ltd is a member company of the Middleby Corporation.
