Servicing specialist NWCE Foodservice Equipment has become the first development kitchen in the UK to install the recently-released Rational iCombi oven at its Bolton facility.
The firm installed the kitchen at its offices for the use of its clients, plus it has recently supported its customers with forward planning by carrying out an in-depth survey on the public’s views on the future of the hospitality industry, post-Covid 19.
NWCE MD Ben Odling commented: “We recognise that now more than ever our industry needs the best possible support to recover from the lockdown and that many tried and trusted methods and menus may have to change to meet new legislation on social distancing for both clients and their returning customers.
“We also understand that whilst the industry is gearing up for a restart that it may not be possible for our clients to test and develop new menus whilst kitchens are being adapted to new safety standards, however, our Covid-secure development kitchen is available for training and menu creation and we are delighted and proud to announce we have just installed a brand new, just released Rational iCombi oven as the new centrepiece of our kitchen.”
Odling believes: “We are the first development kitchen in the country to install the new Rational iCombi oven and are delighted to be able to support Rational in their use of our facilities for their own staff training on their new equipment.
“We are advised by Rational that this is the first iCombi oven to be installed and tested anywhere in the country apart from their head office. This I believe just shows how far NWCE Foodservice Equipment has developed, from 6 years ago being one man in a van to now having the trust from a truly global brand such as Rational to install their new oven for both showcasing and to train their staff. We are truly honoured to support them with this new product.”
