People

People’s worth
Hoonved’s foundation can be attributed to the insight of a charismatic figure, Erminio Dall’Oglio, whilst the talent and commitment of many workers are the reason for its subsequent growth. It is a solid success that shines like steel, the result of a winning mix of dreams and reality, the fruits of the labours of many people.

From organisation to design, from manufacturing to sales, service and spares, everyone in Hoonved works as a team on a daily basis in order to create the force of a dynamic, dependable and customer-oriented company.

 

Our founder and the story of the company

In the very beginning we have the talent and passion of Erminio Dall’Oglio. Following the success obtained with the invention of a peanut dispenser, in 1965, Hoonved’s founder unveiled the first brush-type mechanical glasswasher at the Milan Trade Show, a veritable revolution in the world of professional warewashing. This was the start of a great business venture that grew steadily with a succession of innovative products, production being moved from the garage beneath his home to today’s large manufacturing facility.

Passion

Professional warewashing specialists

A lot of water has passed through Hoonved equipment since the first brush-type glasswashers. Over the years, design has improved, technology has developed and the range has expanded. It is the passion for doing things well that has remained.

Every machine is produced in its entirety in-house: from steel sheet to finished product, we handle every stage of production with care, ensuring that every single component is thoroughly tested. We do all this in order to offer our customers efficient and reliable washing systems, from small undercounter to large rack-conveyor dishwashers.

We always try to offer our customers innovative, reliable products capable of delivering excellent hygienic and washing performance. But we do not stop here. We offer our customers professional skills, expertise and consideration at all times: from buying advice to installation, training, support and spares. We are never far away from the Hoonved customer with an extensive worldwide network of dealers and service centres.

Innovation

Revolutionary right from the outset

It made its debut in 1965 and was an immediate success: Universal was the first brush-type glasswasher, the fruit of the inspired idea of using hydraulic rather than electric force.

A revolution in the professional warewashing sector followed by other important innovations, such as the first automatic espresso cup washers with rotary basket. Over time, control panels provided additional functions with greater automation. In 1978, the first Hoonved warewashers were produced, ideal for bakers, butchers, large scale retail distribution and the food industry.


Today’s design and technology

Recent history has also witnessed significant progress in the field of innovation. With the Sunrise Project we have created state-of-the-art machines capable of offering exceptional standards of hygiene thanks to a revolutionary patented system with clean water, high pressure and continuous discharge wash cycles. With the introduction of the Break Tank System, our dishwashers guarantee rinsing at constant and pressure. In 1996 Hoonved joined the Ali Group with whom it shares a production and development philosophy aimed at continuous improvement of technology and manufacturing. In 2010 we were the first to implement the heat pump in warewashers, allowing lower consumption and a better working environment. But the research is not over: day after day, we continue to pursue our goal of offering our customers increasingly innovative and efficient machines, that ensure optimum wash performance without forgetting consumption and environmental sustainability.
