C&C Catering Equipment has created a new subsidiary called C&C Catering Fabrications.
The organisation, led by MD Greg Swift, offers a range of products including servery counters and bespoke fabrication.
Swift brings much fabrication expertise to his new role, as he was the founder of Knowsley-based Fabco Northwest. Since 2011 he has been C&C’s project manager and prior to that he undertook various roles at manufacturer, Counterline.
The firm believes that the skill and experience of the team at C&C Catering Fabrications will allow the business to work alongside its parent company and its sister business, C&C Catering Engineers and their ever-growing customer bases. These include national hotel chains, restaurant groups, schools and educational authorities, through to small independent catering outlets.
To set up the new subsidiary, C&C purchased what was the CoFabCo factory near Liverpool, a company which was formed to rescue Fabs4 earlier this year. CoFabCo’s director Stephen Lunt and his team will now be employed by C&C Catering Fabrications.
The company is hitting the ground running, and has already begun receiving its first orders, much to the delight of Swift, who commented: “It is certainly an exciting time for us all at the moment as we continue to expand and launch C&C Catering Fabrications. I’m looking forward to bringing my fabrications background to the company and working with a really talented team.”
C&C Catering Equipment’s MD, Peter Kitchin, added: “We’re really pleased to be able to launch C&C Catering Fabrications, which we’ve been working on for some time now. Greg’s previous experience in quality fabrications makes him a great fit to grow the business and establish a continuing success. The company is a fantastic and natural addition to C&C Catering Equipment and C&C Catering Engineers; we can’t wait to see the companies running successfully alongside each other.”
However, the company underlined that it will still continue to trade with its existing fabricators, who are already aware of this venture.
