2018 has been a busy year for Abraxas Catering Equipment Ltd. Our team have secured and worked on new projects across Worcestershire, the Midlands and the UK, working tirelessly with existing and new clients alike. We have continued to grow our service and repair offer and introduced planned preventative maintenance contracts to a number of new clients. Our Snak Shak modular catering pods have grown in popularity with several new ones being installed across the country including 2 schools local to our offices and 2 in the South East of England.

Some notable projects which we have completed in 2018 are

1. A large new kitchen installation for a multi-national company Head office in Surrey

2. A kitchen upgrade for a grade 1 listed property in Hertfordshire

3. A new 6th form café for a secondary school in Coventry

4. A new kitchen for a wildlife park venue in Bedfordshire

5. A new kitchen for a large supermarket in Somerset

6. A new cafe servery and kitchen for a garden centre in Shropshire

7. A new café servery for an exhibition venue in Staffordshire

8. A new kitchen extraction system for a gastro pub in Herefordshire

9. A large new kitchen installation for a University in Devon

10. A new kitchen for a residential nursing home in Shropshire

11. A new kitchen for a primary school in Worcestershire

12. A kitchen refurbishment for a gastro pub by the banks of the river Severn

Away from our project work in March we extended our office space, upgraded our IT systems and refreshed our website whilst in April we obtained CHAS accreditation for our commitment to health and safety. In May two of our colleagues Wendy and Tony abseiled down the 240ft Hampton by Hilton Hotel in Birmingham to raise funds for the Midlands Air Ambulance, as 2018 has been our 20th anniversary year we chose MAAC to support as our charity of the year doing various activities to raise money for them culminating in our #scrapforcash initiative, we look forward to handing over the proceeds from this year long initiative early in 2019.

In October our 20th anniversary was featured in a 4 page article in the Catering Insight magazine which is distributed throughout our industry and we exhibited at the Hereford and Worcestershire chamber of commerce expo. In November our team grew with a new van joining the fleet.

Already we have a number of exciting new projects in the pipeline for 2019 with plans to increase our team and bring a new Abraxas brand to the market, we are set to hit the ground running next Month!

2018 has been a successful year for us here at Abraxas and
we look forward to another one in 2019.

Merry Christmas and happy new year from us all at Abraxas Catering Equipment.
