Henny Penny has commended Jestic Foodservice Equipment in the UK for achieving the largest sales volume of the commercial manufacturer’s products from the company’s pool of distributors across the globe.
The Ohio-based food equipment company awarded Jestic with the ‘Highest Total Sales – Worldwide’ accolade at a Distributor Achievement Awards dinner during NAFEM in February.
The UK-based equipment distributor beat off competition from Henny Penny’s 125 worldwide distributors to claim the top spot, with general market sales of Henny Penny items up more than 14% compared to the previous year.
Jestic was also commended by Henny Penny for delivering an ‘exceptional service and comprehensive after-sales package’ to Henny Penny customers in the UK and for participation in the manufacturer’s training sessions both remotely in the UK and in other locations internationally.
Ben Dale, general manager & director at Jestic Foodservice Equipment, commented on the win: “It’s been a fantastic year for us in which we’ve seen continued innovation and development from Henny Penny, allowing us to offer unrivalled service to our customers and industry partners.
“For our business to have achieved the highest level of sales of any of Henny Penny’s other 125 distributors around the world is an incredible achievement.
“Going forward into 2019, we have more exciting plans and announcements from Henny Penny to look forward to and I am confident that we can continue to deliver exceptional service to our customers and business partners, meeting their project needs in the process.”
