French manufacturer Adventys is confident that Brexit won’t dent its prospects this side of the Channel after UK partner Certa Cooking Equipment moved to increase its stock levels.
Certa has begun stockpiling induction equipment from the brand during recent weeks in order to ensure that customers can get their hands on the kit they need irrespective of what happens on March 29, when the UK is due to leave the European Union.
Director Dan Loria explained that when Certa took on the Adventys brand, a key part of its strategy was to increase the breadth of its equipment available to the market, including products not previously offered, such as its heavy duty range.
This has boosted demand in itself, while the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Brexit has prompted it to up its stock levels in order to ensure customers won’t be left short-changed.
“It is clear from talking to dealers that supply chain and logistics are two of the biggest concerns that they have surrounding Brexit,” he said. “We already have these angles covered thanks to our sister company Certa Logistics and we will be drawing on its extensive warehousing facility to accommodate the additional Adventys stock.”
Certa has also re-written the Adventys warranty and service terms, offering ‘back-to-base’ repair wherever possible, thereby ensuring that end-users will be able to at least get hold of a loan unit via their dealers to remain operational.
