Testimonial

"Working with Airedale and using their equipment knowledge and design experience has helped us to identify and deliver significant cost savings across our business.”

Barry Acton –Purchasing Manager, Greene King

Achieving real cost savings without compromising performance

The Airedale Group is one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of catering equipment in the UK, which means that our clients can be confident that by working us they are securing the best and most competitive rates.

We deal across the board with all suppliers of catering equipment. Being independent we can impartially advise on equipment suitability.  We are able to use our extensive network of contacts to source equipment not available in the UK to meet clients specific needs.

We are also one of the few UK kitchen design companies that provide in-house manufacturing, which means we can offer competitive pricing as well as ensuring delivery schedules are met as we are not reliant on third party fabricators for bespoke products.

For multi-site operators we can offer a more tailored service to look at cost management within procurement of catering equipment. We have partnered with clients specifically on such projects and successfully achieved a reduction in capital spend in excess of 10% and up to 30% of current spend levels. As well as focusing on capital expenditure, by utilising our knowledge of kitchen operations and particularly accessing up to date information from our service business (where we manage over 12,000 assets in the field) we can offer clients an accurate total life cost model accounting for ‘softer’ life cost including energy consumption, service and maintenance costs, support and availability of parts and expected life cycle.

Based on our experience, knowledge and purchasing power, we believe we can achieve a realisable cost saving for most catering businesses without compromising the performance of their kitchen operation. So, we are happy to put our money where our mouth is and work on a performance basis, with no upfront costs and fees based on achieving an actual cost saving.
