“I am thrilled to now be a part of such a respected company. With an ever expanding presence within the European and UK market, I’m looking forward to putting in place further strategies to continue that expansion and firmly establish Wexiödisk as an essential brand in hospitality and foodservice establishments throughout the country.”
