First Choice Group has entered into a new master distribution agreement (MDA) with German catering equipment manufacturer, Blanco Professional.
This now means that First Choice Group is the UK master distribution partner for a full range of genuine OEM spares, accessories and consumables from Blanco Professional, which should help equipment to work efficiently and in the safest way possible.
For First Choice Group, working closer with manufacturers due to MDAs brings benefits including an increased customer delivery service level with a later cut-off time for next day delivery, as well as increased UK stock holding on OEM parts and accessories product ranges.
Alongside this, parts costs are also reduced with the ability to make parts flow more efficiently and the equipment’s ‘up time’ should be maximised due to enquiry response times.
Steven McLaren, commercial manager at First Choice Group, said: “First Choice Group’s recent master distribution agreement with Blanco Professional is our latest manufacturer partnership and we are delighted that the process has now been officially completed.
“In terms of equipment, we now stock an incredibly wide range of Blanco Professional equipment, providing access to a large stock of OEM spares and accessories so that customers can easily find the right products if equipment requires servicing or repairing.
“First Choice Group work alongside many of the industry’s well-known manufacturers to provide genuine manufacturer parts, contributing to the safe and reliable functioning of equipment that will last for years to come.”
Blanco Professional manufacturers a range of catering and foodservice solutions for caterers, specialising in front cooking, food presentation and storing, portioning and transporting solutions.
Ingrid Mann, director sales western Europe/Americas for Blanco Professional, said: “We are delighted to cooperate with First Choice Group, as we believe it will provide the best service to our customers.”
