F o o d E q u i p m e n t N e w s F r i d a y, F e b r u a r y 2 0 , 2 0 1 5 5 2 This belief was based on the theory that manufacturing will come back to the U.S shores, due to customer needs and favor- able comparative costs that today has become known as insourcing. How did Belleco become an insourc- ing and industry leader in countertop toasting, conveyor and warming equip- ment in a mere 10 years, using home- grown employees, all design, fabrication and assembly from the northeast corridor of Maine, U.S.A.? It started with valuing the ability to customize vs. generalize. Belleco's team found it much more cost effective to design its products for customization and accessibility than to find a low cost pro- ducer of a one size fits all product. Imagine starting a mature product line from scratch, ridding oneself of design redundancies and inferior parts! From its inception, Belleco did just that 10 years ago, and now dominate over import copycats. Next was the ability to create a Superior Product Realization Cycle, from sales to design to supplier to fabricator to distribution to end user. All of which were partnered in, not just with Belleco and its toasting products, but Made in USA manufacturing. Even a supplier pro- viding some internal parts from overseas Belleco (Cont'd. from p. 1) attested, "it is refreshing to work with a manufacturer who understands that a competitively priced piece of equipment should never be compromised and that the opportunity to support USA manufac- turing is always a priority." Insourcing here in the U.S. allows for the largest of chain accounts, interna- tional accounts and even small mom and pops to capture the effectiveness of Belleco's cycle of rapid prototyping to product realization. Delays in design completion, third party supplier fulfill- ment, product evaluation, beta testing and production are kept to a minimum. For the dealers, customers and end users, it has become the Full Service Quality (including the 'live voice') that insourcing promotes. Belleco's direct connection to its customers, its people, its product designs, and its product knowl- edge have proved that Made in USA, customization, low cost and superior product can go hand in hand. Belleco would like to thank you and thank its NAFEM partners for a great 10 years and its triumphant return to Anaheim from its 2005 startup year. Full speed ahead for U.S.A. manufacturing for the years to come. Visit Belleco at booth #5216.

Market indoor air quality (IAQ) was finally addressed. After some HVAC design consult- ants and contractors put their expertise to the test, a myriad of equipment and duct solutions were approved and the ventila- tion upgrades were set in motion. Selkirk's grease duct, ZeroClear ® , was a part of that solution. Selkirk ZeroClear is an industry leading, round, stainless, modular facto- ry-built kitchen grease duct system with 0" clearance to combustibles and an inte- gral 2 hour fire rated enclosure. It utilizes dense insulation and a round aesthetic, protective metal outer wall as the integral enclosure. Tested and listed by UL Inc. to UL 1978 and UL 2221 stringent grease duct standards, ZeroClear endures a 500°F continuous operating test and a severe 30 minute 2000°F internal grease fire test, without any breach or structural failure of the duct. The UL 2221 fire test, additionally, engulfs the ZeroClear sys- tem for an integral two hour rating (at 1850°F), again without failure structural- ly or thermally. General Temperature Control (GTC Selkirk (Cont'd. from p. 1) mechanical contractors) installed hundreds of feet of the factory-built, fire-rated, zero clearance, double wall grease duct with inner diameters ranging from 14 inches to 36 inches. With a UL listed minimal slope requirement (1/16" per foot), very low sur- face temperature and overall aesthetics, Selkirk's factory-built system was the obvious choice for this open ceiling market place. Compared to traditional field wrapped and welded carbon steel duct, Selkirk provided the perfect solution. The market's ventilation upgrade was complete in late 2013 and since then, patrons are back enjoying the diverse culinary lunch choices and thankfully, not wearing them the remainder of the day.

AK: Direct Source parts are produced to meet the exact specifications dictated by equipment manufacturers and made by the same original component manufac- turers (OCMs) who make OEM parts. The only difference is where you buy them. One is sold by the OEM or their authorized distributor, and one is sold by a non-OEM authorized distributor, like AllPoints. Otherwise, these parts are exactly the same. FEN: What repair situations are best suited for Direct Source parts? AK: There are four scenarios when we recommend using Direct Source parts. One – when the equipment is out of war- ranty. Two – you would like a part equal in quality to OEM, but at a better value. Three – you need an exact replacement part and the OEM part is not readily available. Four – the equipment is older, and an OEM replacement part is cost pro- hibitive. AllPoints (Cont'd. from p. 1) FEN: What do you think is the biggest advantage of Direct Source parts? AK: Choice! When equipment needs to be repaired, foodservice professionals have an alternative option to OEM parts that will equally meet and perform to the equipment manufacturer's exact specifica- tions. Additionally, Direct Source parts come with a full warranty which is equal to the manufacturer's warranty, or in some cases, better. They are a great choice for many of your replacement part needs. FEN: What would you say is the biggest myth surrounding Direct Source parts in the market? AK: I would have to say the biggest myth is that Direct Source parts are not the same quality as OEM parts. This is just not true. Direct Source parts and OEM parts come off the exact same assembly line and are the exact same part. Visit AllPoints at booth #1633.
