Space UK acquires Holmes Catering Equipment

Space UK, the parent company of Space Catering Equipment, has announced the acquisition of York-based Holmes Catering Equipment (HCE).

The Holmes name has long been associated with the design and supply of catering solutions across a wide range of sectors, with a strong presence with large retailers and hotel groups as well as a bespoke manufacturing arm at its factory in York.

Ian Bidmead, managing director of Space Catering Equipment, said: "We're excited by the acquisition of this well-established and well-regarded company and look forward to welcoming the business and its people into the fold.

"We see it as a great opportunity and are committed to rebuilding the business as a separate entity. Although there will be some synergies, it will be business as usual for Holmes' existing customers with the new company having its own management team, led by managing director Lee Martin."
