County Antrim-based companies Cater2 and CEE have joined forces with an aim of strengthening their business capabilities and creating jobs.
Cater2 is a Ballymena-headquartered distributor, while CEE (Catering Equipment Engineers) is one of the longest standing catering equipment repair companies in Northern Ireland.
The new partnership is designed to provide support for the Cater2 team to continue its growth in equipment sales and customer development.
The distributor’s managing partner Mark Fry said: “This partnership will strengthen our service capability and grow our sales network. Expansion plans are in place with a new business development manager starting in July and we are finalising a business support coordinator position to help manage the office admin.
“These are exciting times for the team and we will continue to develop our business in a controlled manner with the help of our new service partner, CEE. Eoin [O’Hare, Cater2’s other managing partner] and I have ideas that will help our valued customers and believe in working together with a strong trusting team.”
CEE’s MD Victoria Morrison added: “We are thrilled to be working with Cater2 as our new sales partner. We have been servicing the catering world for over 50 years, and are delighted to be able to support such a successful new company, who have already firmly made their mark on the catering equipment industry in Northern Ireland, and who uphold the same standards for quality and service as we have always prided ourselves in.
“With our six engineers having over 200 years of experience servicing catering equipment, we are looking forward to seeing the growth that will come for both companies as we work together to provide the best customer service to the catering world.”
