With continental catering equipment manufacturers’ annual summer shutdown on the horizon, First Choice Catering Spares is aiming to ensure that engineers don’t get caught out in the record-breaking heat.
Every year, catering and refrigeration equipment manufacturers in Italy head out of the cities to enjoy the scorching temperatures and so the factories are shut down until early September, meaning UK engineers can struggle to source spare parts from Italian brands.
For those engineers struggling to find parts, the Cannock-based spares supplier is encouraging them to get in touch or search its website for the part they need.
Business development manager at First Choice, Julian Fisher, said: “The halt in production over in the Italian factories can mean difficulty in getting the right part for catering engineers, but we have thousands of parts in stock at all times, no matter what the brand or type of equipment.
“This year is the hottest summer we have had since 1976, so refrigerators, which commonly break down due to the ambient temperature being significantly higher, are under heightened strain. We have the largest stock of OEM catering spares in the UK, including those from Italian manufacturers.”
First Choice offers a range of parts from some of the most well-known brand names in the business, and has exclusive master partnerships with multiple equipment manufacturers. The firm also provides several delivery options and solutions to suit requirements.
