Sous Vide Tools’ MD Alex Shannon said: “We are delighted to have Phil on-board. His experience and knowledge of the dealer market will be a great asset to both businesses as they continue to grow.

“Going forward, Phil’s primary focus will be to ensure that we have all the right process in place across the entire sales operation in order to ensure the very best dealer experience.”

Commenting on his appointment Dixon said: “Many of the products in the Sous Vide Tools portfolio are niche items that dealers may not necessarily be familiar with.

“This unique and diverse product range is one of the main reasons behind the incredible success of the business to date, but it also means that there is an even greater need for dealers to have all the support and information necessary to sell the products with confidence. That is what I am here to ensure.”

  1. Rumour has it that Sous Vide Tools has acquired the Shop Equip website?

    “We are proud to continue the Shop-Equip name in this industry. We are currently working on a revamped website and product range and look forward to launching this in January 2019”

    I pray that the pricing model is better. I question if there was any margin left after a card processing fee let alone the companies operating costs before going into administration.

    Please be sensible…

    1. Get of thier backs and make your judgement after Soux Vide Tools reveal their intentions, Alex Shannon is a smart guy and will not work on super slim margins. He has made a clever move buying a, lets call it a live brand name and website domain. Think for one moment how many people across the UK have the website listed somewhere.

      Lets just hope that Alex has brought the telephone number as well as in many instances people write down a keep telephone numbers.
