This September, Proline Corporation celebrates its 17th year of manufacturing high-quality front of house servery counters, bars, drop-ins and also high specification stainless steel fabrication for the back of house areas.
Established in 2003 by MD Simon Barnfather and Peter Cogill, the state-of-the-art factory is based in Liverpool. The premises is approximately 20,000ft2 in size and it has a 24 hour operation to keep up with its customers’ demands and requirements.
The factory houses the latest in CNC machinery and the company’s engineers are up to date with all the latest qualifications in house and onsite.
All staff are highly qualified in the counter manufacturing industry and are skilled experts in the design, build and installation of front of house servery counters for the foodservice sector.
At Proline, the bespoke manufacture of counters and drop-in displays is what it is known for. Since the business began, the firm has always strived to make sure that the customer is able to choose from a wide range of options and possibilities with their requirements. Although the counter finishes have changed considerably over the years, the quality still remains, and Proline has always placed its core focus on the customer to provide an excellent service to ensure that their requirements have been met.
Whether the materials are Dekton, Granite, Corian, Marble, Hi Macs, Zinc or any other worktop material that is required, Proline prides itself on being able to produce the highest of standards for its clients, using its manufacturing excellence and experience to guide the way to the right end result. The company also does its bit to save the environment and where possible it uses recycled materials, mainly in the finishes area, tops and front panelling. There are several products on the market that the company has completed projects with, even one with recycled yoghurt pot lids.
Obviously this year has been extremely difficult for all sectors, but hospitality has been hit hard with the Covid-19 pandemic. However, at Proline, the company has had no option but to keep its head down and push forward as best it could to still offer a service to its loyal distributor base and to ensure continuity.
Proline has updated all of its services to ensure that the health and safety of its personnel and customers is paramount, whether it be within the factory or out onsite.
As every company in most industry sectors, Proline has had to furlough staff during periods and has made redundancies, which nobody likes to do, but the firm believes it will be all the stronger for it.
Prior to the lockdown at the end of March, the business launched its back of house specialist fabrication as it is now able to complete highly specified stainless steel fabrication in kitchens as well as the front of house servery areas. Proline believes this assists its customers so that they have one manufacturer accountable for all aspects of the scheme and creates a consistent quality throughout the project.
To offer this service, Proline has had to ensure that its welding and polishing processes are of the highest standard.
It has also supplied several outdoor kitchens and bars this year, which again has added to its skillset and manufacturing arm.
Another growth area for Proline has been drop-ins and stainless steel counters. The company may not really be associated with providing these but it most certainly does. It is very competitive on the range and can provide details when asked to do so.
The company has also launched a visualisation service for its distributor network, giving them the opportunity to have their 2D drawings expressed in a colour 3D visual, also allowing the end user to visualise the finished scheme.
Being able to provide this service for its customers enables Proline to really show the end clients how the scheme will eventually look, so that they can then ascertain whether the proposed project will operationally work and that they are happy with the colours, designs and finishes.
As the dust settles on 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic, Proline has used the lockdown time to innovate, streamline and add to its already strong manufacturing base.
Proline prides itself in offering a full turnkey service for its distributor network, from creating a visual from an idea, assisting in full design meetings, producing high quality manufacturing and detailed drawings, to the contract management of the scheme onsite, ensuring the logistics are perfect and that the final finished project is of the highest standard expected.
Even with the coronavirus impact, Proline continues to stride forward and raise the bar when it comes to quality and service.
