Valentine Fabrique SA, the Switzerland-based manufacturers of Valentine fryers and multi-cookers has a brand new purpose-built fabrication, storage, research, marketing and distribution facility.
The multi-million Swiss Franc investment replaces two factory sites for Valentine in its home town of Ecublens that were a kilometre apart, and brings all the company’s functions under one roof in nearby Romanel-sur-Morges.
Christophe Paris, Valentine Fabrique’s managing director, said that distributors and customers in the Uk could expect to benefit from the new site.
“As we experience strong global demand for Valentine models, including the latest EVO fryers, from markets like the UK, handled by Valentine Equipment, we know the investment in cutting edge production technology and a single well-structured factory is timely.
“The new Valentine facility includes the latest CNC metal cutting and fabrication systems, plus dedicated resources for safety and quality control to test our equipment ensuring the Swiss-made quality we are known for continues. The investment has also delivered a great workplace environment for our staff promoting positive health and well being."
Paris represents the third generation of the family to be leading Valentine forward since 1953, and distributors and end-users can expect to see the latest EVO fryer and multi-cooker systems at Hospitality 2015 in January.
