Jestic Foodservice Solutions has agreed a deal with German equipment manufacturer MKN to distribute its range of combi ovens in the UK.
Working alongside the current MKN structure in the UK, the Jestic team will be specifically responsible for growing national account business, while also holding UK stock to ensure instant availability to UK customers when required.
Steve Morris, sales director for Jestic explained: "We are really excited to include the range of MKN combi ovens in our equipment portfolio and to be able to promote the brand via our sales team.
"In addition to us being able to hold a UK inventory, our ability to support the products via our nationwide team of employed engineers means dealers and operators can now specify and buy MKN combi steamers with even greater confidence." From this month, a range of MKN combi ovens will be available at the Jestic test kitchen facilities in Paddock Wood and Manchester, while MKN will continue to offer test kitchen capacity at First Choice, who will continue as the UK parts distributor for the brand.
Wayne Bennet, MKN's UK head of sales, added: "Jestic's ability to promote MKN combi ovens to its network of dealers and chain accounts is really exciting for the brand.
"The UK MKN team will work closely with Jestic to increase awareness and availability of the ovens and make demonstration facilities far more accessible for the UK market. Myself and my team will continue to be here to support existing and future MKN customers to complement Jestic's activity."
