For more than 25 years Cutting Edge has been “giving our customers the edge” through our leading service across the food production, processing and preparation industry in the UK and Eire. 2018 has seen heavy investment in people and technology to expand and add further value to our customer proposition.
Our award-winning Engineering team, both on site in our fully equipped workshop and our 12 Field based engineers, are trained and equipped not only to service across our legacy machine-base of over 1000 installations, but are now able to offer comprehensive service plans across additional machinery installed by other world class manufacturers. With support from our Strategic Partner, ABB Robotics, our team are now ready to fully support the transition from legacy equipment to the latest in Robotics and Industry 4.0 technology, offering a bridge from the old world to the new with a broad range of expert support services for our customers.
The depth of our portfolio has widened into pioneering technology, with newly developed products across safety, productivity and efficiency, from the revolutionary Guardian Safety Bandsaw System through to our brand-new Table-Top & Butchery Machinery range. These developments are further supported by our wide range of financing options providing all of our customers, from Global Food Producers through to high street Butchers, with flexible access to the best solutions across the industry.
As our business model has evolved in line with our market, we have engaged with existing suppliers and manufacturers to develop and grow our offerings including sterilAir, Cozzini, Siebeck and Honeywell to mention but a few. Further, we have also developed alliances and partnerships with leading businesses and associations of all sizes across the industry, from ABB to Butchery Excellence International, so that we can continue to offer our customers the best possible service backed with decades of combined industry experience.
It is with sadness, but also understanding that our long-standing supplier Grasselli have decided to pursue their global direct strategy. With the recent acquisition of Maja alongside their ownership of Townsend, the mighty Marel is a serious Global player with a direct to market strategy, and we understand that Grasselli feel that fully focusing on their product range is better served through a direct relationship with the regional markets. However, the friendship built over so many years remains and Cutting Edge look forward to continuing to work with Grasselli to support our customers, albeit in a more limited capacity, in the future.
