Hendi has picked up a local UK supplier, after moving its UK distribution back to its Netherlands headquarters in January last year.
Nevilles has taken on the provision of Hendi’s tools for chefs to this country, adding a collection of electrical catering products to its extensive GenWare range.
Both organisations feel they have a strong customer-centric ethos and focus on service, quality and value for money.
The partnership offers the UK and Irish market with a choice of foodservice equipment consisting of 21 lines, designed and manufactured to UK specification. The Hendi collection will include griddles, fryers, slicers, ovens, toasters, grills, and induction cookers, all developed for the UK and Ireland. The products will be sold by Nevilles, alongside GenWare products, through its distribution channels.
Nevilles, a major supplier of tableware and light catering equipment, recently celebrated its 55th year trading, and states that it focuses on new product development and strong customer relationships.
Hendi is a well-known catering equipment supplier on the European continent with strong presence including the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Austria and central Europe.
Nevilles MD Andrew Neville said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Hendi on these products. They have a wealth of product expertise in this area, and the ranges already have a great track record of sales across Europe, as well as in the UK. Expanding into new areas strengthens our product portfolio and helps our customers to source these products in a convenient, reliable and service focused way.”
While Hendi commercial director, Willem Siebelink added: “It is over 85 years ago that Hendrik Diepenveen founded the Hendi company in the Netherlands that grew into an international leading player in foodservice catering equipment offering great quality and suitable for the foodservice marketplace in the UK.
“We believe Nevilles is the ideal partner to work with, as they have a great business in the UK and Ireland, and these ranges will complement GenWare products very well.”
The Hendi range will be launched in October 2021 via the Nevilles website.
