Akro Catering Equipment has appointed Andy Bridgeman as director of UK sales. Andy is already well respected within the catering world having worked for Lockharts Catering and, more recently, as sales director for Rational UK.
Kelvin Phillips, director of Akro, says: “Bringing someone as high profile as Andy on board will create exciting new opportunities for Akro, a company that is already going from strength to strength on so many fronts.”
Akro has always been proud of delivering “good old fashioned values” when it comes to customer service. “We’re not just about selling online,” Kelvin insists. “With Akro you get the best of all worlds. On one hand we’re like the friendly corner shop – yet with an enormous product inventory plus a reach and reputation that stretches across the globe. And now we’ve brought Andy on board, our future looks even more positive.”
Bassed in Mildenhall, Suffolk, Akro has been providing catering equipment, consumables and janitorial supplies to the catering industry for over 11 years. The company also specialises in nationwide service, kitchen design and installation.
“Andy has a wealth of knowledge which we’re keen to use for the benefit of all our customers,” Kelvin concludes. “Whether he is speaking to the head chef of a restaurant or the main purchase of a large group of companies, I know we can depend on Andy to offer the kind of knowledgable, personal touch that is a rare luxury in these days of internet-based sales.”
