PKL Group, the specialist provider of portable and temporary kitchens, is looking to ramp up public sector sales after attaining a listing on the ESPO Modular Buildings Framework.

ESPO helps public sector organisations procure items, services, buildings and refurbishments more easily and affordably. With a range of over 25,000 products available, more than £1 billion is spent through ESPO each year.

PKL has been awarded a place on the ESPO Modular Buildings Framework 953_18 for the purchase and hire of modular catering units.

The Cheltenham-based outfit has been listed on frameworks tendered by ESPO for a number of years, supplying products to customers looking to use this route as a procurement method.

To achieve a listing on the framework, it underwent a rigorous quality assessment process, which evaluated the company’s products, processes, staff, quality and suitability to supply modular catering units. PKL achieved a score of 67.67 out of a possible 70 for this part of the tender.

As well as modular catering units, Framework 953 covers the procurement of a wide range of modular buildings, including healthcare, education and office block structures.

Lee Vines, chief executive of PKL, said: “We are very pleased to be awarded a position on ESPO’s framework. It illustrates the high standards we maintain at PKL and the track record we have demonstrated with public organisations across our thirty year history. We are proud to be associated with ESPO, a group that is trusted by public institutions across the UK to choose only the very best suppliers for its frameworks.”
