Following the buyout of distributor Space Catering earlier this year, Nisbets has confirmed its second acquisition of 2016 with the purchase of Clevedon-based Bradshaw Microwave.

Bradshaw, which has been supplying and servicing commercial appliances in the UK since 1975, is best known as the exclusive UK distributor of the Menumaster brand of microwaves and accelerated cooking products.

“It has been supplying Menumaster commercial microwaves to the hospitality sector for over 40 years and is a highly respected name in the industry.

“The acquisition represents a perfect opportunity for Nisbets to further enhance its product portfolio and servicing capabilities.”

Nisbets will continue to run Bradshaw as a separate business, with current MD Phillip Bullivant staying on as a consultant during the transitionary period.
