Being that the company is very well established and are well known through the forty years of hard work visiting customers supplying new equipment repairing and servicing customers machinery
consequently most of the sales on this side of the business Example having fitted a shop out for a customer they naturally come back to our client when they are ready to open there next project or expand their existing business as the customer is confident of the excellent service provided.

Further our client are very well known for supplying of spare parts for the type of machines commonly used in meat production food production supermarkets shops.

Their business is involved in many different establishments and government premises such as prisons military bases hospitals royal estates then supermarkets such as Harrods Selfridges high class restaurants and hotels famous delicatessens and shops.

There has been a massive expansion in supermarkets and butchers shops who are opening up catering for the Asian Halal Afro Caribbean and Polish communities and further there has been a boom in factory outlets selling pre-pack meat that together with a surge in farm shops opening up also direct to the public and the fact that people have now got use to ordering food on the Internet this all leads to extra sales for equipment.
