In this week’s episode of Market Talk, Jacquie Jenkins, managing director of HB Catering & Refrigeration, and Glenn Roberts, UK national head of sales at Winterhalter, join us to assess the industry landscape.
Swansea-based HB Catering & Refrigeration takes great pride in offering its clients a bespoke and comprehensive service whatever their needs and wherever they are in the UK. Ms Jenkins describes how the business has expanded its offering during lockdown, with the roll-out of new leasing and kitchen maintenance services proving particularly popular with customers.
She also discusses some of the biggest challenges facing the dealer market – including growing lead times, sudden price increases and damaged equipment as a result of new freight carriers taking on catering consignments.
Glenn Roberts heads up Winterhalter’s UK sales force and he outlines the ways in which its new PT Workhorse passthrough dishwasher can reduce energy and water consumption, while also enhancing usability and reliability.
Mr Roberts explains how the manufacturer has engaged closely with operators to ensure that its latest range of equipment incorporates the features that make a tangible difference on a daily basis and shares his thoughts on what the four-week delay to the government’s Covid roadmap means for the hospitality industry.
