Marco Beverage Systems Joins the Cold-Water Market with New Hot, Cold and Sparkling Systems

Marco Beverage Systems, a global leader in manufacturing hot water and coffee brewing systems, has announced the launch of FRIIA – their first venture into the cold and cold/sparkling water market.
Developed to meet the increasing demand for fresh, healthy beverage choice, particularly in corporate spaces, FRIIA can deliver hot/cold or hot/cold/sparkling water through a single, sleek font.
The compact, modular undercounter system incorporates a water chiller and award-winning water boiler. The undercounter chiller incorporates aluminium block technology to chill incoming water by an average of 10° and the boiler contains a vacuum insulated tank to ensure temperature accuracy and energy-efficiency. In fact, FRIIA is 23% more energy-efficient than leading competitors.
In keeping with Marco’s established position as a leader in design, the FRIIA font has a sleek, brushed metal finish and premium LED feature. In response to the growing trend of clean, uncluttered counters, the font also has a minimal counter footprint.
FRIIA is the latest development for Marco since the launch of the award-winning and much-acclaimed MIX range. An innovation in water boilers, MIX delivers hot water at three exact temperatures from a single font. Since launching in 2017 MIX has been a key driver of beverage excellence and has played a part in spreading an understanding of the importance of temperature accuracy in premium tea brewing.
FRIIA is available in two sizes FRIIA and FRIIA PLUS and also comes in Hot/Cold (HC) or Hot/Cold/Sparkling (HCS) variants. FRIIA will be launching with CC certification on March 8th 2019.

ABM UK launches second year of perception change campaign

Triple the number of schools to take part with plans for national outreach
This month, leading facilities management services provider, ABM UK, kicked off year two of its Junior Engineering Engagement Programme (J.E.E.P) following a successful pilot year with three schools in West London. It aims to tackle perceptions and provide information about engineering, facilities management (FM) and apprenticeships amongst secondary school aged children and their parents.
Supported by education delivery partner, The Transformation Trust, ABM UK will take the immersive programme into nine schools across the UK including schools in London, Leeds, Manchester and Bradford. Running from March to July 2019, year two will see over 150 students participate in the programme. The modules include activities on electrics, cooling and more, with the theme of sustainability running throughout the course.
ABM UK’s director, Adam Baker, says: “We’re delighted to be in a position where schools across the country are interested in the J.E.E.P initiative and to be working with triple the number of students in comparison to our pilot year. However, in order to change perceptions, we need to make the programme scalable. That’s why we will be making the programme available to teachers all over the country so they can implement it themselves, with our support.
“Research which we conducted last year1 brought to life just how big the perception problem is that our industry is facing; for example, we found that over a third of parents don’t know what an apprenticeship is and a further third see apprenticeships as a last resort for young people who fail exams.
“However, the J.E.E.P pilot proved that there is an appetite for programmes like this and that the young people involved are open to learning about new industries and alternative paths to success, other than just university.”
Cate Smith, Senior Programme Manager at the Transformation Trust says: “We were delighted when ABM UK approached us and asked for us to be a part of this programme. Being the first of its kind in the UK means we can hopefully pave the way for other initiatives like this, as the end goal for the FM industry is to close the skills gap.
“We believe initiatives like this are a great way to introduce students to a new interest through fun activities and experiments. It’s our job to deliver these modules in an engaging way to ensure the students leave excited about their potential future in FM!”
Tom Rice, Careers Lead at Oak Wood School commented on the first module: “The first module was a complete success with our students. It was clear from attending on the day that a lot of thought had gone into the planning of these modules. During the first session, our students carried out experiments on mould, heat and conduction, alongside the theory of FM and the definition of clever. It was great to see our students so engaged in the course. They’re really looking forward to module two!”
In year one, ABM UK collaborated with generous suppliers and clients who see the value in taking action. These included Helistrat, SMI – Workwear, Trinity Fire & Security, Edmundson Electrical, Diversey and Westbury Group. ABM UK will be looking for further support from industry peers as the programme goes from strength to strength.
