Breaking through the budgetary restrictions

24 June 2010

As capital budgets are squeezed ever harder there are strong signs that many organisations are turning to outsourced and contract hire solutions that can be met from revenue budgets. So says PKL, the UK’s leading supplier of temporary kitchens and catering equipment for hire.

"There are many organisations, particularly in the public sector, where there is a desperate need to upgrade catering equipment or kitchen buildings but capital funds simply aren’t available," notes PKL’s Lee Vines. "The long term hire of catering equipment, or even an entire new kitchen building, is a real capital-free alternative because the cost is met through a monthly fee. And the service provider assumes the financial risk relating to the equipment," he adds.

PKL offers a wide choice of hire options, ranging from the ability to specify a complete kitchen equipment estate with inclusive service and maintenance, to permanent modular kitchen buildings that can be designed and configured to end user choice.

Using the contract hire option to procure new kitchen buildings or to replace or upgrade a current kitchen estate provides a viable alternative to capital purchase and is particularly relevant during the current squeeze on funding. In addition, outsourcing all service and maintenance means that there will be no additional costs once a kitchen is in place.

"It seems clear that we will see even tighter restrictions placed on capital budgets over the next few years but many organisations can’t wait that long to upgrade their kitchens," Lee Vines adds. "We are happy to work with any of these bodies to evaluate their needs, identify the best solution and explore the options that are open to them," he concludes.
