Modo Commercial Kitchen Design and iFour Designs, both based in West Yorkshire, have joined the Lincat Select Partner programme.
The partnership scheme is designed to bring together dealers who have the ability and infrastructure to provide a full turn-key solution for the design and build of commercial kitchens.
The new partners were welcomed to the now 28-strong dealer programme after attending Lincat’s annual Select Partner day at its factory in Lincoln.
Attendees were invited to get hands-on and cook with recently-launched products such as the integrated Synergy Grill, and competed in a pizza making challenge using the new Cibo fast oven. They were given a sneak preview of upcoming product launches, demonstrations of IMC’s new Wastestation and Britannia’s Refresh ventilation unit, and were introduced to the key benefits of the new website.
Sev Uzar, national account manager at Lincat, explained: “It’s great that our Select Partner scheme continues to grow and strengthen, and we’re delighted to have Modo Commercial Kitchen Design and iFour Designs on board. We have built collaborative partnerships with dealers all over the UK and Ireland, all of whom have extensive knowledge, understanding and experience of supporting all kinds of food businesses.
“Through regular events and training, we work closely with our Select Partners to enhance their product knowledge. They also have ongoing access to sales, service and marketing support, so they can deliver an excellent service to end users.”
Lee Swiffen, director at iFour Designs, commented: “Our desire to support British industry, along with the uncertainty that has been highlighted by Brexit, means there are great benefits to iFour working closely with a well-established manufacturer such as Lincat. Many of our clients are independent restaurants and bars, setting up either their first or second restaurant, so the need for good quality, reliable equipment is a key factor.
“Joining the Select Partner programme means we can confidently specify equipment that delivers fantastic performance from a supplier that provides excellent after-sales support and service.”
Neil Coombes, MD at Modo Commercial Kitchen Design, added: “At Modo Commercial Kitchen Design, we are committed to delivering excellent service and high quality, reliable equipment. Becoming a Select Partner, and utilising Lincat’s support, will strengthen our offer. We look forward to growing sales through this new partnership and enhancing the experience and satisfaction of our customers.”
