Hoshizaki is a leading manufacturer of commercial kitchen and food service equipment. The Hoshizaki Electric company was founded by Mr Shigetoshi Sakamoto who demonstrated remarkable foresight when he started our company in Nagoya, Japan in 1947. From an early stage Mr Sakamoto recognised the need to invest in research and technology and in 1959 his son Seishi joined the company. Together the pair worked with engineers who shared their vision and the breakthrough came with their invention of the first ice machine in Japan in 1965.


With the company’s reputation for invention and consistent quality established at home in Japan, businesses from across the world began to demand our products. And gradually, with expansion firstly in Asia, America, then Europe and most recently the Middle East and Africa, Hoshizaki has become a truly global company reaching customers in over 100 countries.

Placing reliability, durability and energy efficiency at the centre of our design process, generations of Hoshizaki engineers have helped us build an international reputation for high quality, well-designed products.

By merging with refrigeration specialist Gram Commercial, we have brought together the brilliance of Japanese engineering and the intelligence of Danish design. Our collaboration has created the world’s most connected, innovative and responsible manufacturer of cold solutions.

Our range now features an extended line of kitchen and food service equipment including ice makers, dispensers, refrigerators, freezers, and sushi cases.
