As the third generation Keal to join the family business, Ben Keal is already very familiar with the catering equipment industry.
After leaving school, he completed a 4-year electrical engineering apprenticeship at a local company before choosing to join the family firm to develop his career as a catering engineer and also share his electrical expertise with Sylvester Keal’s current service department.
Since starting at the company, which was formed by his grandfather Derek Keal in 1987, Ben has become a key part of the distributor’s servicing and maintenance offering, forming part of the firm’s new, dynamic installations team which serves professional kitchens.
Industry colleagues believe he shows an amazing commitment to delivering quality customer service and fully embraces Sylvester Keal’s visions and values.
As well as exercising his skill set, Ben also heads up the electrical installation management aspect of the firm’s projects. This sees him take responsibility and accountability on every project that he is involved in, which ensures the distributor provides the highest possible service level.
Ben’s role is a varied one which sees him tackling all aspects of maintenance and repair for commercial catering equipment.
