UK distributor of professional cooking appliances, Grande Cuisine has announced that it will become the UK exclusive distributor for Mareno cooking equipment in the UK from the 1 October 2017.
Steve Hobbs, managing director of Grande Cuisine, said: "Since the announcement of the forthcoming closure of Dawson MMP earlier this year Mareno has been looking for a suitable partner and I am delighted that after an extensive selection process they have put their faith in us.
"Mareno is one of the best known and most highly respected names in the UK equipment market and will therefore sit very comfortably alongside the other market brands in our portfolio."
Monica Arato, export sales manager, for Moreno, explained: "It was really important for us to find a UK partner with similar values to our own, experience of selling and supporting premium quality catering equipment in the UK and one with an excellent reputation in the industry. We believe Grande Cuisine is just such a company and very much look forward to working with them."
"Mareno has a number of well-established dealers in the UK and we have already started the process of engaging with them," added Hobbs. "We intend to make a significant investment in growing the Mareno brand in the UK and have already made provision for its products to feature on the Grande Cuisine stand at Hotelympia in 2018."
Mareno legacy warranty will be managed by Dawson MMP Limited until the service team transition on 30 November 2017, after which date AFE Serviceline will support all warranty and contract customer requirements with regard to appliances purchased through Dawson.
