Middleby UK will now supply the Imperial brand to this country.

Following Middleby Corp’s acquisition of cooking equipment manufacturer Imperial in September, the UK branch of the foodservice appliance conglomerate has now picked up the local supply of the new group brand.

Imperial was previously supplied to the UK through Gamble Foodservice Solutions.

Chris Jones, group president for Middleby Worldwide – Europe said: “We are excited to take Imperial to the next level, not only in the UK, but across Europe. Everything about the Imperial range complements our existing Middleby brand portfolio and this brand is another strong link to gain us traction across the industry.”
