Commercial catering equipment manufacturer Lincat has launched a new facility dedicated to the training of service engineers. Based at the company’s factory in Lincoln, the independent facility is used to deliver training on the new Opus 800 and FilterFlow ranges, as well as the continuation of courses for Opus combi steamers.
Tailored training is available to Lincat’s in-house team of service technicians, as well as external service engineers, subcontractors and dealers. A range of Lincat products are used at the facility, introducing people to new software and other features. The facility also utilises Lincat’s SmartVent extraction canopies.
The majority of training is delivered by Lincat’s product support manager, John Quipp, and factory-approved combi trainer Nigel Costigan.
Quipp said: “As a leading UK manufacturer, we pride ourselves on the back-up, spare parts availability and aftersales support we offer our customers. Part of this is our commitment to ensuring people have the know-how to get the most out of our products. Lincat equipment has an excellent reputation for being well-built, well-designed, robust, reliable and, with a little knowledge, also easy to service.
“We’ve offered training for service engineers for a number of years but, to reflect Lincat’s successful growth, we wanted to build on this offering and invest in a bespoke training facility to deliver it. Whether it’s technical insight for engineers, or a generic overview of Lincat products for support staff, it’s a great chance to get hands on with Lincat equipment and learn how best to operate and maintain it”.
Based in Lincoln, Lincat produces products for cooking, holding and food display, which are supplied to commercial kitchens across the globe.
