“It’s a dream, “says Christopher Dean, Regional Director of Dining and Procurement. “Moving to just having Meiko as our brand has meant that a lot of dishwashing problems have gone away.
“The machines have a longer working life than other brands and Technical Services support is brilliant. Meiko has worked well for us and we appreciate that their set up is good. The three year ‘no bills’ is the icing on the cake for Sunrise, providing added PPM at an affordable price.”
The “No-Bills” guarantee is favoured by care home groups as this enables them to fix operating costs for three or five years. The guarantee includes fully inclusive breakdown support, spare part provision, annual planned maintenance during the contracted period and of course, no unexpected or unbudgeted repair bills.
Sunrise achieved the NACC ‘Sustainability Award’ at the 2014 NACC National Awards. It uses Meiko’s DV80.2GiO pass-through dishwasher, designed to wash crockery, cutlery and glassware and which can also be supplied with a sorting station, creating a highly space-efficient warewashing solution.
Meiko’s GiO reverse osmosis water treatment system provides sparking clean ‘hand polished’ results, removing up to 98% of impurities from incoming water and eliminating the need for wasteful water softening apparatus to precondition the incoming water. GiO consumes much less water than softeners (ask us for details) and helps improve the green credentials of the kitchen by reducing the amount of chemicals consumed and because there is no softener salt going down the drains.
Sunrise Senior Living delivers resident-centred care services to well over 2,000 residents in the UK. The Sunrise philosophy is founded on encouraging independence, preserving dignity, enabling freedom of choice and protecting the privacy of each resident. This approach reflects the company’s mission, which has remained unchanged since the business was founded in 1981: “to champion quality of life for all seniors”.
Before Sunrise used Meiko, it used to a 'mish-mash' of different machines across the 27 senior living communities.
