Former Hepburn Associates design consultant Matt Summers has moved across to the distributor channel after officially taking up a role with C&C Catering Equipment this week.
Summers joins the Chester-based company as a project manager, bringing almost 10 years in the catering industry to the role. Prior to his seven years at Gloucestershire-based Hepburn he worked for Space Engineering Services and Fishlocks Catering Equipment.
Paul Parry, C&C’s project director, said: “Matt will be a great asset to our business. He is a young and dynamic professional who will further develop our expanding team. We know Matt from his previous position at Hepburn Associates and we understand how he can add value to our company.”
Summers is C&C’s third major appointment in two months and managing director, Peter Kitchin, confirmed Summers would be managing many of the key projects that it has scheduled for the coming months.
“Matt will be working closely with the drawing office as he has the ability to draw and edit designs, taking the pressure off the drawing team and making us more efficient,” he added.
Summers said he was excited about the new role, adding that he was aiming to “hit the ground running and contribute from day one”.
Meanwhile, C&C confirmed that it recently completed the design, supply and installation of a new £90,000 cafe at Leighton Hospital near Crewe.
The project, which was completed with an accelerated installation window of just three days, features Counterline chilled displays, counters and fabrication. It also boasts Foster refrigerators, Merrychef Eikon ovens and Hobart warewashing equipment.
The choice of equipment is befitting to the hospital’s need for a ‘grab-and-go’ catering service for its often time-pressed staff, visitors and patients.
