First Choice Catering Spares Ltd
First Choice Group supplies OEM parts and spares for the commercial catering industry. It also supplies spares for the refrigeration, laundry, coffee and bakery sectors and provides for kitchen ancillaries, food waste solutions and engineer training sectors.
Combico UK is the company's certified training division which runs gas courses and assessments for engineers under the Nationally Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS). It also offers bespoke training on Rational and MKN equipment.
First Choice recently relocated to multi-purpose, state-of-the-art headquarters on Staffordshire's exclusive Kingswood Lakeside site. Stocking over one-million items in its 90,000 square foot warehouse, the company - regarded as the UK's number one supplier of catering spare parts - can consolidate all the requirements of its customers into a single shipment with no minimum order level, for next day delivery of stock when items are ordered before 5pm. The move to new premises has kick-started a program which aims to increase First Choice's current 24,000 lines of stock to 31,000 by the end of the year, increasing the value of its stock from £3.7-million to £6.5-million.
