RP Adam secures new contract with Young & Co's Brewery
Cleaning and disinfection products manufacturer RP Adam (Arpal Group) has secured a new long-term deal with Young & Co.'s Brewery, extending the existing contract to 2020.
A family-owned business based in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders, RP Adam is, this year, celebrates its 125th year in business.
The contract extension will include the provision of cleaning and disinfection products to Young's managed pub estate including its Geronimo Inns, which in total covers 170 sites across London and the south-east. Central to the contract win was the implementation of RP Adam's Duotek system which introduces what the manufacturer believes are unrivalled safety levels for the use of liquid dish and glass washing detergents.
Max Adam, RP Adam Marketing director and the fourth generation Adam to be involved in the business, welcomed the contract extension, saying: "Young's is one of the UK's leading quality food pub chains, with 30% of turnover represented by its food offer.
"We have, over the years, shown the value of a reliable long-term partnership in supporting the expanding food offer and this deal now cements Young's as RP Adam's marquee pub client with increasing food sales. Helping to ensure food safety and staff safety are key areas of focus for us and our clients' businesses.
"I am especially pleased that Duotek will be part of the contract extension, which brings a genuine ultra-safe innovation to the UK's pub market, providing unrivalled user safety. This shows the importance of providing our customers with a range of added value services which ultimately improve the overall service offering."
RP Adam developed the Duotek, and the related Safelink system for the automatic management of potentially hazardous dish and glass washing detergents.
The system, which can be fitted on all types of dish or glass washing machine, uses a special safety mechanism to prevent the accidental spillage or splashing of hazardous chemical on the user.
The Young's extension deal is a major boost to RP Adam's five year investment and growth programme, launched as the company celebrates its 125th year in business, which sets out a £20 million turnover target to be reached by 2020.
Max Adam adds: "Our goal ahead of 2020 is to use the experience and talent within the wider RP Adam group to expand the business at home and abroad. The next phase in the company's expansion story promises to be an extremely exciting time, and the Young's business forms a part of that journey."
