Euro Catering Equipment has hired Justin Towns as its new national accounts manager to grow its business and develop new partnerships, particularly in the retail sector.
Towns has worked in the catering equipment industry for more than 20 years, starting his career as a sales executive at Hobart before national account roles with the Peterborough-based manufacturer and its fellow ITW company Foster.
Prior to joining Euro Catering he was with E&R Moffat, where he worked for almost three years in a national sales role.
Tim Charlton, managing director of Euro Catering Equipment, said Towns has an excellent knowledge of the foodservice sector and has developed good relationships with the market.
“We are very happy to welcome Justin to the Euro Catering Equipment team. He has a strong background in foodservice equipment, having worked in the industry for many years and we feel he is the ideal candidate to head up our sales team and further grow the company.”
Euro Catering Equipment is the UK importer for Palux, Giorik, Italforni and Firex, and intends to add further key retail brands to its portfolio.
