Catering equipment supplier Nisbets has announced its acquisition of UK Engineers
UK Engineers is a nationwide provider with over 25 years' experience in connecting independent, qualified engineers with professional customers to service heavy equipment in the catering and hospitality sector. Its technology platform supports a network of 500 dedicated contractors, providing full UK coverage for heavy equipment sales both within and beyond warranty.
The company will continue to trade as a separate entity under its existing management team led by its managing director, Paul Holloway, who said: "We are excited to have the backing of such a significant and respected organisation. Our team is extremely positive about UK Engineers' future as part of Nisbets. Whilst it will be ‘business as usual' for our customers, staff, and contractors, Nisbets' scale and infrastructure will allow UK Engineers to grow substantially. We have already identified several very exciting projects to collaborate on and look forward to the future with great confidence."
Peter Sephton, Nisbets' vice chairman, commented: "This acquisition is our first in over five years and is made despite the uncertain trading conditions caused by the pandemic, demonstrating our absolute commitment to the catering and hospitality sector. Technology is fundamental to our ability to maintain high growth for our businesses and this acquisition will enable us to enhance our service offering further."
Robin White, managing director of Nisbets UK & Ireland, added: "Nisbets customers expect reliability, speed and quality of service from us. It creates a ‘one stop shop' experience for customers and next day and in some areas, same day delivery. This acquisition supports our service business' growth plans focused on delivering excellent service for both light and heavy equipment. We look forward to working with the UK Engineers team."
