Salvajor's next step was to introduce its product in 1946 at what is now the National Restaurant Association Restaurant Hotel-Motel Show in Chicago. One of the first pre-flushing, scrapping, and food-waste-collecting systems in the industry, the Salvajor Senior was quickly accepted and soon found its way into the nation's restaurant, hotel, hospital, factory, and university kitchens.
The company continued to attract recognition. In 1964, Salvajor was honored with an invitation to attend the International Trade Exhibition in London. This opportunity gave the company the chance to establish its earliest overseas marketing representation.
It was also in the 1960s that Salvajor engineers began designing new products in earnest--products that would help make Salvajor the leader in its field. Then headed by the late George O. Sherman as director of engineering, the firm developed five new products over the next 10 years.
When the founder's son, the late George C. Hohl Jr., took the reins of the company as president and CEO in 1970, research and development remained a top priority. In 1971, Salvajor introduced a new waste disposer that incorporated the first real improvements to disposer design in 50 years. As the company grew, it expanded its product line by attaching its waste disposer to other newly developed Salvajor systems. The ScrapMaster and TroughVeyor, for example, were two products designed to increase the speed and efficiency of scrapping.
