One of the catering industry’s most experienced and knowledgeable specialists in the manufacturing and sales of commercial catering equipment has joined Peterborough-based CK Direct, the leading supplier of kitchen extraction systems and stainless steel kitchen units.

Robert Mallet, 46, has more than 30 years in the business, working his way up from apprentice fabricator/welder, to sales manager. He’s married with two teenage sons.

Robert has an impressive track record in catering equipment and fabrication and ran his own successful fabrications business for nearly 10 years.

He says he’s looking forward to developing relationships with the customers at fast-growing CK Direct. When he’s not on the road, he enjoys watching tarmac rallying, following one of his sons playing for the local cricket team and on alternate weekends following motorcross.

CK Direct MD Tony Ricciardi says. “Robert is well known in the catering industry – he has many friends and contacts and it’s a real coup to have him on board.”
