Kent-based Jestic Foodservice Equipment has announced the launch of a new after-sales division, Jestic Technical Services.

Incorporating the ServEquip brand and Hugall Services, two of Jestic’s recent acquisitions, Jestic Technical Services will provide customers with the reassurance of a comprehensive after-sales solution.

With customers ranging from large, high street chains and franchises to independent outlets and operators, Jestic Technical Services will complement equipment sales by offering a range of packages and solutions designed to meet the demands of the individual business.

Neill Pearson, service director at Jestic, said: “A commercial kitchen is an extremely demanding set-up and one that will naturally take its toll on equipment, no matter how robust a design may be. Jestic Technical Services provides experts available in person and on the phone, who can take care of any issues that may arise during operation.”

Jestic Technical Services offers nationwide coverage with a first-time fix target of 90%, and a response time of between four hours and the next day.

Earlier this month, Jestic was listed as one of Britain’s most inspirational companies in a London Stock Exchange report.
