Electrolux Professional has recognised the stand-out performance of a number of its foodservice, beverage and laundry distribution partners in its annual Partner Awards.

·       First Time Fix (Laundry) – Caledonian

·       Service Fulfilment (Foodservice) – Assure Catering

The awards also recognised the achievements of internal staff members, with Regional Business Managers Mike Kendall and Mark Rogers from the Channel Sales Team both acknowledged as outstanding contributors for the year.

Darren Lockley, Head of Region for Electrolux Professional UK & Ireland, comments: “It goes without saying that 2021 was an exceptionally challenging year for the commercial foodservice, beverage and laundry industries. Large parts of the economy remained closed for Q1, which combined with the significant closures throughout 2020, meant a huge amount of ingenuity and resilience was required to navigate such a tricky period.

“That said, many of our distribution partners were able to do just that and I am delighted to be able to celebrate their success through our 2021 Partner Awards. Likewise, given the tough operational circumstances many of our service partners found themselves in throughout large parts of last year, particularly when travelling to sites during lockdown, it gives me great pleasure to expand our categories to recognise their endeavours, too.”

He concludes: “I hope I can speak for us all when I say that 2022 provides a real stepping stone for our industry to move forward, but as a business, we would certainly not be able to do so without our partner network. It sits very much at the heart of our operations and I’m excited for the collaboration that is to come.”
