Four new dealers: Garners Foodservice Equipment, Vision Commercial Kitchens, Mainland Catering (MCE) and Wards of York, have rounded out Lincat’s Select Partner Programme.
The programme is designed to bring together dealers who have the ability and infrastructure to provide a full turn-key solution for the design and build of commercial kitchens, and support the introduction of Lincat’s new Opus 800 range of heavy-duty equipment.
Lincat’s sales director Christian Jones detailed: “Opus 800 is very much aimed at those investing in entire suites of equipment, from kitchen refurbishments to complete new build schemes. Our Select Partner dealers have been chosen for their knowledge, understanding and experience of supporting all kinds of food businesses, and their high level of commitment to the Lincat brand over the years.
“We will provide thorough training to enhance their product knowledge, and work closely with them to deliver an excellent service to end users. All of our Select Partners also have access to sales, service and marketing support.”
He added: “The programme was established with nine dealers in August last year, and the appointment of these final four means that customers in all areas of the country now have access to expert advice and service.”
The initial dealer partner list comprised ABM Catering for Leisure, Allsop & Pitts Catering Equipment, Crosbys, Gratte Brothers, Grey Simmonds, HCE Foodservice Equipment, Lloyd Catering Equipment, Sprint Group and Walker Catering Supplies.
The Lincat sales team and Select Partner dealers mixed business with pleasure recently, when they enjoyed a tour of Marston’s Brewery in Wolverhampton. Marston’s has specified the use of Lincat catering equipment throughout its 1,700 managed and franchised pubs for many years.
The company’s listing focuses largely on Lincat’s heavy duty Opus 800 range, including oven ranges, fryers and high efficiency Vortech fryers with built in filtration. It also includes the brand’s FilterFlow automatic water boilers and Opus combi steamers.
