Oh, what a year! 2019 has seen a few changes within the company with the addition of Richard Roberts, Sales Manager, and Julie Smith, Sales Administrator, to help with the continued growth of Abraxas Catering to the next level. This year we have secured a number of major projects around the UK, along with many new local customers. Our catering pod is growing in popularity with 5 pods installed since July and more enquiries all the time. We were also shortlisted in the Catering Insight Awards – Distributor of the Year for Corporate Social Responsibility, for raising funds through our scrap metal recycling scheme for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

Midland Air Ambulance Charity Events

For the 2nd year running our chosen charity to raise funds for is the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity #MAAC. With each mission costing around £2,500, the charity needs to raise a staggering £9 million each year to keep its three air ambulances operational. Along with the National Hot Chocolate Day in January, we raised funds doing the Tough Mudder Challenge in July and Rob Woodward, Managing Director, enjoyed the MAAC Corporate Golf Day with some friendly faces! We will be continuing to support the charity during 2020 with some great events already lined up for the year – watch this space!

Accreditations, Exhibitions and Supplier News 2019

In January we were delighted to announce that Abraxas Catering is now a fully verified Constructionline Gold member. All Gold members are assessed and awarded, an Acclaim or ‘Deemed to Satisfy’ SSIP certificate, demonstrating to buyers that we comply with Health & Safety legislation, raising the professional standard of our organization, which is something that all construction buyers look for in the supplier selection. We were also proud to find out that in April, Abraxas became a Select Partner with Lincat, having been a longstanding distributor for almost 20 years.

There were lots of changes and challenges throughout 2019 and already 2020 looks to be even better with a wide range of fantastic projects all ready and waiting for the New Year to start!

We would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you to all of our suppliers and customers that we work with and we look forward to another fruitful year ahead.

We will, of course, keep you all updated on our Social Media platforms, to include Twitter, Facebook and now Instagram (it had to be done eventually!), and look forward to seeing what the next decade has in store for Abraxas Catering.

From Everyone at Abraxas Catering, Happy New Year!
