The Royal Navy has assigned Target Catering Equipment to a new MOD maritime project.
The family-run firm will design and fabricate a number of three and four dish servery counters for the Royal Navy’s astute-class submarines.
Commissioned to carry out the project by Wathen Marine Catering Equipment Service, the Gloucester-based company has designed, manufactured and supplied the catering equipment based on specific requirements made by the MOD.
The project came as a result of previous contracts to manufacture and supply bespoke stainless-steel items for Southampton-based distributor Kempsafe, original suppliers to the Royal Navy’s shipbuilding contractors.
David Pedrette, managing director at Target Catering Equipment, said: “Having six years’ experience in marine engineering and over 30 years’ experience in manufacturing commercial catering equipment, helped to ensure we could provide the exceptional service required for this project.”
He added: “It also helped that we had previously carried out projects which we offered our services and equipment to prestigious maritime projects including the Royal Navy’s aircraft carriers HMS Invincible and HMS Ark Royal.”
