Cambro Manufacturing is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of one of its most revolutionary products: Camshelving®. When Camshelving was introduced to the foodservice market in 1999, it was extraordinary for two reasons. Not only does it not rust, but its polypropylene shelf plates contained Camguard, an antimicrobial technology that inhibits the growth of mold, fungus and bacteria. Up to this point, foodservice operations largely had metal shelving as their only option. Metal shelving is not only difficult to clean, but it rusts easily, creating potential food safety problems. Cambro sold Camshelving with a “Shelving for Life” goal and promise—and that’s just what it’s become.
“We’ve been using Cambro Camshelving for 5 years. We don’t deal with rusted shelving anymore. Especially in a walk-in cooler. Replacing rusted shelving is a really big project for a store. Once Camshelving is installed, it does what it’s supposed to do,” said Brian P. Gill, Equipment & Smallwares Specialist for Five Guys Burgers and Fries.
Camshelving can be used to hold anything, anywhere. It’s safe for use in walk-in refrigerators, freezers, dry storage and even front of house. On more than one occasion, Camshelving has been used in dry aging rooms with high-priced meats sitting right on its shelf plates. The versatility of Camshelving knows no bounds thanks to its durability, food safety and ability to be easily cleaned.
Since the inception of Camshelving, several advanced accessories and new products have been created using the same durable materials. Accessories like divider panels and shelf rails keep items organized and safe while being stored on Camshelving. New products like Drying Cradles and Racks, the Flex Station, Ultimate #10 Can Rack, and Ultimate Sheet Pan Rack were all made possible thanks to the initial manufacturing of Camshelving.
