The approach to the market
Since its debut U5 is keen to meet all of its customers’ needs both in terms of goods and services. There are four product macro categories: Beverage, Ice Cream, Supermarket and Catering. Ranges evolve year after year, “simply” to follow customers’ requirements.
Within each range, U5 offers both cabinets manufactured in its Occimiano plant and units manufactured by its partners.
The former are innovative refrigerators conceived by designers and often patented. We define them as Emotional, with the awareness that a cabinet has to stand out in order to be placed in the Point of Sale and attract the consumer.
This is the case of the Vintage range (U5 patented) which recalls the 1950s and 1960s design with modern and reliable thermodynamics. The latter are “RATIONAL” cabinets, hardwearing and dependable products by selected U5 European and Asian Partners, based on clearly set U5 specifications. An example are the traditional CIS chest freezers and of the FV 390 showcases, widely recognised for their known reliability.
Under all circumstances U5 cabinets are with HC gases, both in polyurethane foams and in systems, i.e. gases not environmentally harmful. U5 R&D department is constantly looking for cutting-edge solutions for a further energy consumption abatement. All this – and here is the real challenge – at competitive prices.
From 2019 the new plant in Occimiano (Al) is inaugurated, a production site of over 50,000 square meters that previously belonged to the historic IAR Siltal.
