Italian manufacturer, Tecnogas SUPERIORE, made its appliance debut in the U.S. and will be added to Almo Premium Appliances’ distribution portfolio. Almo introduced these new product lines, which include NEXT and DECO, at several launch events, including one K+BB attended recently in Atlanta.

The 63 year-old company – from the historic village of Gualtieri in Northern Italy – has designed a product portfolio exclusively for the North American market, offering hoods and flagship ranges with giant gas ovens featuring a panorama window, versatile cooktops and intriguing finishes with iconic Italian style.

The NEXT ranges come with the option of the "widescreen" PANORAMA oven door window, which has triple layered glass for maximum thermal insulation so the door remains cool to touch even when the oven is heated to 500 degrees.

“Adding the U.S. market creates a new platform and expansion into the Americas,” said Steve Terry, Almo’s senior vice president. “Today, they export to 50 countries with new European product.”

The products will be available in the Central U.S. and on the West Coast by early 2016. They have been designed and sized specially for the U.S. market.

The DECO line allows a choice of brass, gold or chrome trim accents.

“The products have the fit, finish and performance of ultra-premium products at an incredible value,” said Terry. “The units are all in 30-48-in. sizes with large ovens and the finish characteristics designers expect.”
