January 27, 2013 EASTON, PA – Follett Corporation announces the release of the new 15 Series ice and water dispensers, a product line extension to the popular 7 Series ice and water dispensers. The 15 Series comes in countertop and freestanding models. These dispensers can produce up to 125 lbs of Chewblet® ice per day and hold 15 lbs of ice to provide enhanced refreshment opportunities for work groups up to 50 people.
“Based on the extremely positive market feedback on our compact 7 Series dispenser and the need to serve even larger work groups, we developed the higher capacity 15 Series,” according to Follett Corporation CEO Steve Follett. “The 15 Series dispensers have the same popular features as our 7 Series, including an attractive design, drainless installation, sanitary dispensing, and antimicrobial protection, plus the additional ice storage capacity to serve more people.”
The new 15 Series dispensers, along with the 7 Series, feature Follett’s proprietary Chewblet ice, a chewable nugget that consumers prefer by over 2:1 compared to cube-type ice. The larger storage capacity allows customers to support enhanced refreshment offerings such as iced coffee and iced tea, and contribute to overall employee satisfaction.
With its highly efficient refrigeration and water systems, the 7 and 15 Series are up to 60% more energy efficient than similar sized cube-type ice makers and offer up to a 75% reduction in water consumption compared to undercounter ice machines found in offices today.
Founded in 1948, Follett Corporation is a leading manufacturer of ice-related equipment, including ice machines, ice storage and transport equipment, ice and beverage and ice and water dispensing equipment for foodservice and healthcare markets worldwide.
