KeyChoc’s new chocolate processing machinery hire service lets customers borrow equipment on a short- or long-term basis.

Companies can use machines to provide more capacity at seasonal peaks, fulfil one-off large orders and trial models before making purchase decisions. They can also be hired for special projects, demonstrations or exhibitions. Machines available for hire include the MM series of moulding machines, CH series of melting/holding tanks and BT series of automatic batch temperers.

KeyChoc has also launched MarketPlace a platform for companies to buy and sell second-hand or surplus machinery. Similar to a classified listings format, Marketplace allows sellers to offer their surplus machinery to a highly targeted audience.
