At First Choice we realise that spare parts are at the very heart of an efficient service operation. Your customers rely on you to keep them cooking and you cannot achieve this without the spares you need when and where you need them. Our aim is to meet this need with an unsurpassed level of service in the supply of spare parts to the commercial catering industry. We have long recognised that only by working closely with equipment manufacturersand our customers, can this be achieved and over the last 12 months we have made several new partnership agreements with leading equipment manufacturers.

Following the recent acquisition of Valera by Unitech, First Choice Catering Spares Ltd has been appointed the exclusive Spare Parts Partner for the brand. Valera started business as a specialist Sanyo microwave oven distributor two decades ago but expanded over the years by adding a wide range of cooking, refrigeration and display equipment to its portfolio. In recent years sales of refrigeration equipment grew to represent the bulk of the company's offering. First Choice has taken over the entire stock of Valera spares and is able to offer next day delivery from UK held stock of all of the commonly needed spares for the full Valera product range.

At the start of last year we agreed an exclusive agreement to distribute Granuldisk spares in the UK. Dawsons Food Service Equipment also agreed a UK spares partnership, recognising First Choice as an official supplier partner for OEM spare parts for the Comenda, Lainox, Rosinox and Mareno brands. Another member of the Ali Group, Ambach, also chose First Choice as its official spare parts provider for the UK. More recently we were appointed as an Official Spares Partner for the Cuppone brand by Linda Lewis Kitchens, the sole importer of Cuppone into the UK and over time we have also agreed partnership deals for the ATA, Kromo, Infrico and Saro brands.
