A delegation of dealers and key account customers visited Rational’s headquarters in Landsberg am Lech in the heart of Bavaria, south east Germany, at the end of September.
The educational visit included a factory tour and a visit to the Rational museum; there were presentations, and a ConnectedCooking demonstration – the latest network solution for professional kitchens. The delegation also enjoyed a visit to the annual Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich.
Graham Kille, Rational’s technical sales director, hosted the visit. He said: “We are delighted that our partners had the opportunity to gain more knowledge about the company and experience the production lines and our quality assurance processes.”
The Rational SelfCookingCenter appliances are exclusively produced at the site in Landsberg. For quality, four different employees check each appliance before it is sent to the customer. All of the company’s technical departments co-ordinate their activities regularly to maintain and improve the quality of the products.
Visitors on this trip included representatives from Alliance, Cater-Kwik, Ritchie Catering Equipment, Galgorm Group, Instock and Prospect Catering Design.
David Ritchie, MD of Ritchie Catering Equipment, commented: “A fantastic and informative trip that confirms exactly why Rational are market leaders in the catering equipment industry.”
