Jestic Foodservice Solutions has expanded its portfolio of leading equipment brands after signing a deal with Carlisle Foodservice Products to become a master distributor in the UK.
The deal will give Jestic’s customers access to Carlisle’s comprehensive range of smallwares which include the V-line of stainless steel Gastronorm pans, StorPlus food containers and OptiClean washware racks.
Carlisle is one of the US’ largest foodservice suppliers, sourcing professional-grade products for commercial foodservice, janitorial and healthcare markets. It operates five manufacturing locations and four distribution centres in the US.
The deal cements Jestic’s reputation as a leading importer of US equipment to the UK market. It already works with brands such as Henny Penny, Wood Stone, Vitamix and recently added Antunes to its portfolio.
Steve Morris, sales director at Jestic, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring our customers the comprehensive range of professional grade smallwares offered by Carlisle Foodservice Products, which perfectly complements our existing portfolio of equipment brands.
“Carlisle’s high quality and durable gastronorm pans, containers and washware racks are the back bone of foodservice operations around the world, helping caterers to run more smoothly and efficiently, and I’m sure the ranges will prove equally popular in the UK.”
The Carlisle V-line of stainless steel pans are available in all standard gastronorm sizes and are built to last with double reinforced corners and a unique impact resistant edge design which helps pans hold their shape.
V-line pans will not jam together during storage, will stack or nest with most other leading brands and tapered pans fit standard food pan templates. The V-line range can go from freezer to oven to serving line, making them ideal for cook-chill operations.
The tough and durable StorPlus range of food containers from Carlisle provides a complete solution for safely storing and transporting food as part of a HACCP programme.
The range is available in all gastronorm sizes and comes in a choice of three materials – impact resistant polycarbonate, HH17 or stainless steel.
Jestic said products from the Carlisle range will be showcased on its stand at the HRC show next week.
