Bristol-based catering equipment supplier Nisbets has added another international territory to its roster by launching an operation in the USA.
The company has been preparing the groundwork for its North American arrival for some time, but confirmed this week that the business has finally gone live.
Nisbets said it had been “an exciting few weeks” for the company as it officially opened the doors on an entity based in Baltimore, Maryland.
The business is understood to be heavily online focused and will offer next-day delivery to customers throughout the Eastern Seaboard.
The US becomes the ninth country that Nisbets has a direct presence and represents its first offering outside of Europe and Australia.
Nisbets is thought to generate in excess of £160m a year in sales, with at least a quarter of that figure coming from its international businesses.
As well as its in-country operations, Nisbets also provides an export service that has seen it ship catering equipment and supplies to customers in over 100 countries during the last 20 years.
