A commitment to cold beer and perfect shaped ice has seen Adelaide-based Hoshizaki Lancer become a world leader in beverage dispensing and ice manufacturing.

The company – established in 1967 – began selling refrigeration and cold drink dispenser systems to local pubs.

Today it is a $40 million company and one of the world’s largest providers of draught beer, soft drink and frozen beverage dispenser systems, ice machines and professional food service refrigeration units as well as heat recovery systems.

The company pioneered the development of frozen beer founts and high volume beer and soft drink dispense systems and is renowned for its “perfect” cubed and crescent shaped ice.

Its flagship product – the S4E Beverage Chiller is a back-end carbonated soft drink system used by Coca Cola Amatil, Schweppes, Hungry Jacks and a range of other large hotel groups and quick service restaurants.

Hoshizaki Lancer Managing Director Mr Joe Thorp said the company had grown rapidly off the back of strong relationships and an “unrelenting” commitment to developing products to suit Australia’s unique climate and unquenchable thirst.

“This approach has served us well and we now have a loyal client base of major bottlers and brewers servicing more than 25,000 outlets both locally and internationally,” he said.

“We pride ourselves on manufacturing inventive beverage and ice systems that provide outstanding reliability for the hospitality, medical and mining industries.

“We are also unique in being the only manufacturer in Australasia that manufactures and supports complete beverage and ice systems from back of house to front.

“Hoshizaki Lancer is now the forerunner for all hospitality fit-outs, covering the world’s biggest stadiums and entertainment venues, leading pubs and clubs, through to quick service restaurants and convenience stores.”

Hoshizaki Lancer has offices in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Auckland and Hong Kong and exports to a range of countries including New Zealand, Philippines, South Africa, United Kingdom, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, South Korea, India and Nepal.

“We supplied the glycol beer system for Wembley Stadium in the United Kingdom, the high volume Coke systems for Jollibee restaurants in the Philippines and recently exported our first beverage system to Nepal,” Mr Thorp said.

“Asia is a key export market for us.

“There is strong demand for our high volume glycol beer systems and soft drink superchillers and we are constantly developing new products in line with market demand.”

The company names Lion Nathan, Fosters, Hungry Jacks, Hoyts, Village Cinemas, BP and Mobil among its clients. It was recently named Coca Cola Amatil Supplier Of The Year for Sustainability for its efforts in achieving more than 30% energy reduction and 1.79 tonnes per annum reduction of CO2 per unit in its flagship product, the Lancer S4E Soft Drink Superchiller.

Parent company Hoshizaki Electric has sales of more than $2 billion per year and is the world’s largest brand of commercial ice making equipment with an international reputation for excellence in producing quality products.
