British manufacturer Falcon has seized UK distribution of combi oven brand Lainox following the Ali Group’s decision to shut down Dawson, which previously managed the business.
Falcon, which officially takes charge of Lainox from today, will supply Lainox products including combination ovens, parts and detergents, as well as provide technical and customer support.
Falcon’s sales and technical teams are already familiar with the product range, as the company has sold a selection of Lainox products for several years.
Tim Tindle, managing director of Falcon, said: “Falcon is one of the UK’s most respected catering equipment brands. Lainox has built a great reputation for quality and innovation. Together Falcon and Lainox appliances are a perfect cookline combination.
“Our familiarity with Lainox will be invaluable in terms of delivering the continuity of supply that customers demand. Our aim is to protect customers’ interests – in the short-term they should notice no difference. In the mid- to long-term they will benefit from Falcon’s expertise and commitment to customer support,” he added.
The Lainox move to Falcon follows the Ali Group’s decision to reposition the equipment brands previously marketed by Dawson.
The Lainox range will be distributed through Falcon’s dealer network.
Service support will be provided by Falcon’s sister company Serviceline. Falcon, Lainox and Serviceline are all members of the Ali Group.
