And the winner of the "Heavy Equipment Supplier of the Year" award for 2009 goes to, Rational
08 June 2009
Rational, the inventors of the SelfCooking Centre, are the winners of the prestigious award from the Catering Equipment Distributors Association.
The award is not only one of the catering equipment industrys' most prestigious, it is also an accolade for Rationals' recent developments in combi cooking including lastyears' introduction of the new CareControl system, which has made a major difference in installation, operation and maintenance.
Speaking at the presentation, on April 24th at Carden Park Hotel in Chester, CEDA Director Peter Kay said that Rationals' win was an overall view from CEDA's 80+ members, who represented the majority of the catering sales industry in the UK.
"Across the industry and all categories, it represents the esteem in which Rational are held by catering dealers, and it is richly deserved," he said.
Receiving the award on behalf of Rational was the companys' Development Chef Paul Kerr. He said he has noticed a marked rise in interest in the companys' flagship SelfCooking Center since the introduction of CareControl, a major enhancement that lowers energy consumption, removes the need for water treatment systems and makes cleaning easier.
"We are delighted to get this accolade from the distribution sector, which recognises what caterers have told us were their priorities," said Paul Kerr. "In previous years Rational has focused on making the SelfCooking Center the best possible cooking device. But CareControl focused on making it still more environmentally friendly, simpler to install and use and even more reliable too. That's what made the difference with dealers."
