Victor ensures hospital kitchens won’t go short of hot cupboards

Heated gantry

Victor Manufacturing has confirmed it is currently operating with a skeleton crew of workers to provide essential products to NHS and care sites.

The Bradford-based outfit temporarily closed its head office and manufacturing facilities at the end of March in line with government advice to halt the spread of Covid-19, but is still in a position to supply hot holding units and refrigeration equipment to key customers.

Units are priced at ESPO contract 98 government procurement framework levels and can be despatched to ensure free next-day delivery to frontline sites.

The company has ready-built items available in its warehouse for purchase after manufacturing additional hot holding equipment popular with hospital customers to meet demand.

Victor has also registered its services to the government for use of its vehicles for logistics, supply of catering equipment, and manufacture of essential items if required.

Victor celebrated its 75th anniversary last year, during which time the business was bought by managing director Phil William from previous owners the Mrs J M Mountain Will Trust in an MBO.

It employs 120 staff in Bradford and turned over £9m in its last financial year.
