Coldstat Named to Manitowoc STAR Certified Service Program

Commercial refrigeration company’s nomination into elite Manitowoc service program follows launch of new ice machine leasing program.

Paramus, NJ, April 04, 2012 --( Coldstat Refrigeration has recently been named an official member of Manitowoc’s new STAR Service program for “outstanding aftermarket service and support” in commercial refrigeration. Through this program, Coldstat, a long-time Factory-Authorized Service Provider for Manitowoc Beverage and Manitowoc Ice, commits itself to the high standards of customer service and support that fall under the STAR program mandate, and agrees contractually to adhere to its strict principles.

The STAR initiative will apply to all Manitowoc Foodservice product lines. Companies qualify as Factory-Authorized after demonstrating qualified and timely installations; maintenance and first-time fix reactive services for equipment in and out of warranty.

The commercial refrigeration company’s prestigious designation comes just as it launches its Ice Machine Leasing program. This new program gives food-serving establishments the flexibility and benefits of having a new ice machine or ice dispenser, without the responsibilities of owning and maintaining one. Under the Ice Machine Leasing Program agreement, Coldstat supplies the new machine, maintains it regularly and handles service calls or repairs. Manitowoc is an integral part of the ice machine leasing program.

With this designation, Manitowoc noted that much of the company’s success as a respected leader in manufacturing for foodservices is largely due to “contributions by our excellent independent service providers.”
What STAR Certification represents:
S – Standards: Every service provider meets the same, tough standards set by the factory.
T – Training: Every service provider meets stringent training requirements.
A – Authorized: 100% of service providers are factory backed and authorized.
R – Responsive: Every service provider commits to responsive customer needs.

“We are proud to qualify for this unique designation in customer service and aftermarket support, said Ion Sarkisian, President of Coldstat Refrigeration. “For years Manitowoc has trusted Coldstat Refrigeration to handle its important installations, and similarly we have come to trust Manitowoc of reliable, efficient, top-of-the line refrigeration products and the ones to recommend to our customers.”

Coldstat ensures EPA Certified, factory-trained technicians with fully mobile rapid response service teams on call 24/7 to provide timely, reliable service.
