Ramco urges operators to consider their surplus assets as costs soar


Ramco is encouraging hospitality organisations to review their unwanted equipment to help them generate vital funds, with business development consultant Paul Fieldhouse claiming there has never been a better time for organisations to contribute to the circular economy.

The circular economy specialist has been helping organisations find new homes for their unwanted equipment since 1996. Working with businesses across a range of industries and with long-standing relationships within the foodservice sector, Ramco offers a fully managed service which helps organisations protect the environment, save on unnecessary storage costs, and create a financial return.

Increasing energy bills is having a knock-on effect on supply chains and running costs for hospitality operators, causing many organisations in the sector to look for new ways to reduce costs and unlock capital. Mr Fieldhouse explains the benefits of finding new homes for your old equipment.

He said: “The foodservice industry is entering a challenging time with soaring operational costs impacting businesses across the UK. As the weather cools and heating bills increase further, we’re urging organisations to look at their unwanted equipment and consider the benefits of rehoming items they no longer need. This reduces a business’ waste and carbon footprint, whilst also generating income which can be reinvested.

“Sometimes organisations in the hospitality sector can find it difficult to dispose of their equipment in a sustainable, compliant, efficient, and profitable way, but our hassle-free process removes this burden, making it easier to contribute to the circular economy. We take care of everything, from decommissioning, collection, refurbishments, right through to storage, marketing, and sales.

“And growing demand for second-hand goods makes this a great time for businesses to sell their unwanted equipment and respond to the market. We’ve seen a huge increase in the number of buyers registering for our auctions in recent years and a 200% uplift on pre-pandemic figures.

“Working with organisations such as Catercall, Café Spice Namasté, Gratte Brothers and leading equipment suppliers, we’ve built unrivalled experience in the sector, finding homes for all types of catering equipment, including combi ovens, refrigerators, dishwashers, and range cookers.

“As we continue our mission to stop valuable assets sitting idle, we look forward to helping more leisure and hospitality operators find value in their unwanted equipment as we navigate this challenging time together.”
