The YCE Catering Equipment brand is back in the UK market, after family-owned business the Walton Group bought assets of the Leeds-based distributor, which closed its doors earlier this year.
The sale comprised YCE’s intellectual property, including trading names, telephone numbers and websites, as well as business equipment, together with one commercial vehicle.
The Walton Group is headquartered in York and also owns sister companies including catering, hotel and bar supplies specialist, HotelWare Supplies, and air conditioning and refrigeration technology supplier and installer, Cooltec.
The group plans to re-establish the historic brand and is actively reaching out to its supply chain and establishing business processes.
Walton Group director, Dane Walton, has now taken the helm of YCE, so Catering Insight caught up with him in this video to get the lowdown on the new company.
