Since opening for business in Tunbridge Wells in 2005, Jestic Foodservice Equipment (Jestic) has been an integral part of the food service industry, working closely with clients, chefs and brands around the world to become renowned for providing catering equipment that does more than just cook.

Celebrating 10 years of dedication to the food service industry in 2015; Jestic acquired Hugall Services, further strengthening the capabilities of the Jestic service division.

Following concerns within the Jestic management team regarding supply chain processes supporting the business and in particular with the level and mix of parts inventory and the layout of their warehouse; Jestic engaged The Supply Chain Consulting Group (SCCG) to review the current supply chain processes and to identify areas which require more detailed assessment.

Conducted in two phases, The SCCG team of Specialist Supply Chain and Logistics Consultants reviewed the Jestic current supply chain processes. The experienced Consultants reviewed inventory levels and warehouse operations.

SCCG provided Jestic with a set of cost-effective recommendations, and an implementation plan, to improve control of their inventory levels and warehouse processes, and guide the next step of areas for improvement.
