Winner of Meiko’s annual award for outstanding sales and customer care by a UK Partner Distributor is London based Court Catering Equipment.
Court were the first Meiko Partner Distributor to buy into the GTS food waste removal concept, having installed two inlets and a 5000lt tank during the refurbishment of the Don restaurant in St. Swithin’s Lane, London.
Following on from the Don restaurant installation, Court are now currently installing a second GTS waste inlet within a new kitchen development at the Lensbury Club in Teddington, a site that has had a GTS system operating successfully for some two years now.
“The Meiko GTS Food Waste Removal System really has become a key part of our product portfolio and whilst not suitable for all catering outlets, with a bit of creative thinking the GTS can be a solution for many” commented Nick Howe, Managing Director of the Acton, West London based distributor.
Court’s turnover increased fourfold in 2013 compared that of 2012, thanks mainly to the above GTS project and the company’s focus on promoting the Meiko GiO reverse osmosis premium range machines to a wide ranging customer base that included schools, colleges, restaurants and hotels.
“We are delighted with this award and to be nominated as the Meiko 2013 Partner Distributor of the Year,” added Howe, “which has been achieved through a collective effort from everyone within the company, ranging from our Sales and Projects Team, through to our Service Department and logistics team. Meiko is a very valued partner for Court Catering.”
As part of the award, Court receives a complimentary ECO530 dishwashing machine that currently lists at £4,408.00.
“This is an astounding achievement. Court Catering Equipment has proved, that even during the depths of a recession - determination, professionalism and sheer hard work, combined with a quality product and first class after sales service, really can pay off,” said Meiko UK Regional Sales Manager Mark Sharland.
