Warewashing equipment manufacturer Maidaid Halycon insists customers will be able to get their hands on whichever products they want this summer as it has made provisions for the temporary shut-down of the factories that supply its kit.
Catering equipment factories in parts of continental Europe, such as Italy, traditionally close for up to four weeks during August for holidays, but Maidaid says the break in production won’t impact the availability of stock on the ground.
Director Chris Myhill says the company has been building up inventory so that customers in the UK don’t face any problems getting hold of the kit they want over the summer.
“Maidaid Halcyon prides itself on the ability to supply its customers’ needs,, large or small, over the August shut-down. We have a very large stock holding, everything from our latest Minirack machines through to our smallest undercounter units, along with ice machines, coffee machines, tabling and including good stocks of our new models.”
Myhill said the Northamptonshire-based outfit is expecting business to strengthen over the coming weeks thanks to the release of a number of new warewashing lines.
“We will be holding over 2,500 machines throughout the Maidaid Halcyon range, to see us through the next three to four weeks. This time of year is a challenge for our warehouse staff who have to find spaces to put the equipment. This is a well-planned procedure and the warehouse staff have years of experience.”
Maidaid is able to deliver to the majority of mainland addresses next day free of charge, while a timed delivery is also available at a small charge.
