Fagor’s recently-appointed European area manager, Christophe Sisternas, has reaffirmed its commitment to supplying the UK dealer channel through distribution partner Valera.
Fagor Industrial, which includes the Fagor, Asber and Efficold catering lines among seven brands that it manages, has just rebranded as Onnera Group.
But Sisternus said that despite the corporate makeover it remains business as usual as far as product supply is concerned.
“In conjunction with the UK dealer network, including members of Cedabond, Valera will continue to build on Fagor’s already strong brand position in the UK,” he said.
Valera holds a wide selection of Fagor products in stock including Series 700/900 cooking equipment, ovens, warewashers and ECA-approved refrigeration.
Pratap Gadhvi, managing director of Valera, added: “Following the announcement at the HOST exhibition in Milan that the Fagor Industrial Group is to be rebranded as the Onnera Group, we are very pleased that the new group has reaffirmed its commitment to the UK commercial sector and in doing so has also confirmed Valera’s position as the sole supplier of Fagor branded products to the UK dealer market.”
Valera became part of the Unitech Industries Group earlier this year and now operates from a central location in Banbury, Oxfordshire.
The company says it can offer dealers next-day delivery on Fagor stocks as well as for other brands that it carries.
