Maidaid Halcyon has raised a glass in celebration after reaching 45 years as a supplier.
The Northamptonshire-based company was first formed as Maidaid Ltd back in 1974, by founders who identified the need for under counter cabinet glasswashers for use in the UK hospitality industry.
This was a time when the majority of pubs only hand-washed using a countertop rotating brush and dried each glass by hand.
After three hard years of trying to sell the concept, the breakthrough eventually occurred with a major pub group and single orders from pub tenants and owners turned into a regular order stream. The same chain still buys warewashing machines from Maidaid to this day.
As the company grew it merged its Halcyon and Maidaid brands, enabling it to offer the range it continues to present today.
Once the company decided to focus on warewashing it felt the time was right to introduce larger rack and flight machines into its regular range. It classifies itself as one of the few warewashing suppliers that considers a rack machine a stock item.
It also provides a range of ancillary products including water softeners and water treatment devices as well as best quality specialist detergents.
Sales director, Julian Lambert, said: “We will continue to work hard to add further customer satisfaction. Maidaid’s employees are our company’s greatest asset and therefore every effort is made to further develop their product knowledge and appreciation of the company structure and the key role they all play in the delivery of a service they can be proud of.”
