One of Spain’s leading manufacturers of commercial cookware, including kitchen utensils and buffet display products, Pujadas, has entered the UK market.
The firm boasts a reputation for innovative ideas appealing directly to chefs. Now the company has reached agreement with Foodservice Equipment Marketing (FEM) to launch the range in the UK.
The brand includes a wide variety of both kitchen and front of house essentials. There are also lines ranging from stylish display concepts to products specifically designed for Spanish cuisine, such as paella cookware.
Pujadas expects one of the best lines to be the Inox-Pro range of quality professional cookware, which is made using 18/10 stainless steel and is induction ready.
“Pujadas is a quality manufacturer with a range of products that complements our existing portfolio,” said FEM sales director Jim Doherty. “We’re delighted to welcome the brand to the FEM family and look forward to presenting it to our distributors and their customers.”
Pujadas export manager Joaquin Pons said: “FEM is a natural fit for us, not only because of the established Vollrath connection, but also their customer support, close relationship with distributors and proactive approach to marketing catering products.”
The partnership between Pujadas and FEM is now in operation, with stock arriving in the company’s East Kilbride warehouse by early November. FEM is also producing new catalogues covering the full range of products that will be available in the UK.
Pujadas is based near Barcelona and has been manufacturing catering products since 1921. In 2015 it was acquired by the Vollrath Company, a longstanding supplier of FEM.
