“We are pleased to hand over the reins to Metcalfe Catering Equipment and wish them every success.”

Metcalfe will be distributing the Atollspeed AS250T, said to be the most compact full performance model in the Atollspeed family; the best-selling Atollspeed AS300T; and the high performance Atollspeed AS400T.

Metcalfe MD Neil Richards said: “We are very proud to be working closely with the team at Atollspeed.

“Already well known and well respected in the UK, Atollspeed ovens feature high tech innovation coupled with elegant design and high quality manufacturing.

“They are a perfect addition to our ever expanding range at Metcalfe and fit perfectly with our goal to provide strong, high quality equipment, designed to perform time after time in tough foodservice environments.

“The Atollspeed ovens will also form an integral part of Metcalfe’s growing portfolio of high speed cooking solutions, which also includes Roband contact grills and the Roband ‘Sycloid’ toaster.

“The signing marks the start of a very exciting period for Metcalfe and we will be introducing the new ovens to our customers throughout September and October, notably at the ENSE Autumn Conference, Lunch Exhibition, Cedabond Equipment Forum and the Restaurant Show.”
