Exclusive Ranges is to become the sole supplier for Capic equipment in the UK this month.
The move will give Exclusive Ranges the ability to offer a full range of French manufactured, modular and bespoke equipment from Capic’s portfolio.
Previously, Milton Keynes-based supplier Grande Cuisine had been providing the French brand to the UK market since 2013.
Grande Cuisine MD Steve Hobbs told Catering Insight: “Any quotations currently in the pipeline will be honoured by Grande Cuisine together with the 1 year parts and labour warranty. Any existing business will be honoured by Grande Cuisine as per our trading terms and historical record.”
However, Exclusive Ranges’ MD Trevor Burke also said that his company will be covering all existing warranties across the UK.
He commented: “This exciting addition of Capic to our collection creates a partnership with a family-owned business that will see a return for us to the well-established territory of modular equipment. We intend to develop the brand through a distributor network across the UK giving full sales and service support through the existing, reputable Exclusive Ranges structure.”
Burke believes that his customers will benefit from what he feels is the the quality, functionality and durability of the Capic range. The brand’s products will be profiled at Hotelympia on the Exclusive Ranges stand, number 1718, in London’s ExCel on 5-8 March.
