Rational UK has moved to allay concerns about disruption to foodservice equipment supplies, saying that it has good levels of stocks and that its customers can have confidence in the company’s ability to fulfil orders, now and in the future.
Simon Lohse, MD of Rational UK, said: “We made extensive plans to ensure that we would be ‘Brexit-ready’ and able to continue to meet customer demand in the UK and Ireland.
“As well as increasing UK stock levels before 1 January, for both the iCombi and iVario cooking systems, our factories in Germany and France introduced new policies designed to help speed up response times for UK customers. All of which means, as far as our end users and dealers are concerned, it’s business as usual.”
Lohse added that Rational is very confident about the UK market going forward: “Sales have remained relatively buoyant and are building up to pre-Covid levels in every sector of the market.
“Thanks to our contingency planning, customers can be sure that if they place an order tomorrow it will be fulfilled at least as quickly as it would have been a year ago.”
