‘What impressed me most of all about Brakes Catering Equipment was their 'cando' attitude’. The words of Ian Toal, the recently appointed CEO of Adams Foods, one of the UK’s leading food manufacturers. ‘One of the first projects I wanted to undertake here was the design and installation of a purpose built food development kitchen that would serve as the centrepiece of our head office in Leek.
I had a very clear idea of how I wanted this facility to look and of the three companies that we invited to take up the challenge, Brakes were the only ones to say 'yes, we can do that'. One of the others said that they simply could not achieve what I wanted, whilst the third said it could do the job, but it would probably take them 6 months from start to finish!
In conjunction with our highly respected consultant chef, John Burton-Race, the Brakes Catering Equipment team designed, delivered and installed exactly what was required in just 4 weeks and within budget - a shining example of what can be achieved when everybody works together. The new kitchen, which is glass fronted, acts as a magnificent centrepiece and is the perfect venue for our own product development work, as well as meetings with existing and prospective clients interested in all that Adams Foods has to offer.
Aside from the stunning glass frontage Brakes Catering Equipment supplied everything else in the facility, including combination ovens, fryers, fridges, cooking tops and a fantastic branded counter for us, and our clients, to discuss business. From the very small - cups, saucers and teaspoons, to the very big - a purpose built extraction system, they supplied it all.
As a leading supplier to the retail and foodservice sectors and as the owner of respected brands, such as Kerrygold and Pilgrims Choice, it was vital for us to have a development kitchen that reflects our standing in the marketplace and Brakes Catering Equipment have delivered a facility that does just that.’
