Commercial catering equipment manufacturer Lincat has introduced a new partnership scheme for dealers - the Select Partner programme, which was launched at the company’s purpose-built manufacturing facilities in Lincoln.

The scheme is designed to bring together dealers who have the ability and infrastructure to provide a full turnkey solution for the design and build of commercial kitchens.

The new programme will support the launch of Lincat’s new Opus 800 range of heavy-duty equipment.

Christian Jones, sales director at Lincat, commented: “Our Select Partner dealers have been chosen for their knowledge, understanding and experience of supporting all kinds of food businesses. The partnership will be collaborative - we will provide thorough training to dealers to enhance their product knowledge, and work closely with them to deliver an excellent service to end-users. Our new Select Partners will also have access to sales, service and marketing support.”

Lincat manufactures products for cooking, holding and food display, which are supplied to commercial kitchens of every kind across the globe.

In April, Lincat took on two new managers in its sales team, following the promotion of Christian Jones to the sales director role.
