Panasonic’s microwave division and wholesaler Regale Microwave Ovens of Gosport have signed a new distribution agreement to formalise Regale as Panasonic’s supply partner for its range of commercial microwaves and speed ovens.
Jared Greenhalgh, European sales manager at Panasonic, said: “Our key focus is to continue to grow relationships with our customers and the future growth of our business will be supported by nurturing our distribution network.
“Our recent partnership with ENSE has confirmed this commitment and with that in mind, we are delighted to announce that our long-standing affiliation with Regale Microwave Ovens has now been extended to that of supply partner.
“This means that now, any operator will be able to purchase a Panasonic oven from their preferred supplier, either via our direct distribution network or through a distributor supplied by Regale, who will be offering an unrivalled service to any distributor who doesn’t have an account with us directly, making it easier to procure Panasonic microwaves.”
Regale deputy MD Iain Phillips added: “Winning new business is tough enough; ordering the stock and having it delivered when you want it should be the easy part, but global supply setbacks are presenting challenges across the board.
“Normally, Regale would hold ample stock of the entire Panasonic range but one of the advantages for the operator of this new partnership is that we will be running forecasts directly with the Panasonic factory ordering system ensuring enough stock to satisfy demand; all orders received by 2pm will be dispatched that day, on a next working day service, with free delivery too.”
