It’s all about front of house at the moment, grabbing the customer’s attention, gaining that point of difference. Precision’s new innovative front of house refrigeration includes a meat ageing cabinet, wine cooler, bottle coolers and the iconic Retro Refrigeration.
Displaying meat is becoming more and more popular, but ensuring it is kept in the best condition is essential. Precision’s stylish and practical meat ageing cabinet is designed for front of house display, but is equally suited to kitchen duties. It provides the perfect temperature and humidity-controlled environment for meat ageing while attractively showing off the meats as a sales tool.
The cabinet’s internal temperature can be accurately set from 1ºC and 4ºC with the humidity controlled between 75-85% – without the need for a water supply. Precision supplies Himalayan Rock Salt to enhance the meat’s flavour and to optimise humidity regulation within the cabinet.
Precision’s new wine cabinet, on show for the first time in the UK, is in a class of its own with full temperature and humidity control to keep wine in perfect condition, pull out wooden shelves, glass doors and LED lighting to show off the bottles. Tall and slim, the wine cabinet is designed to add sophistication to any venue.
Precision’s latest bottle coolers are high impact sales tools as well as being solid, reliable pieces of refrigeration equipment. They are designed to take the hassle out of back bar equipment with Precision’s maintenance-free condenser fitted across the range.
With a stainless steel exterior and mirrored stainless steel interior, glass doors are fitted as standard, while internal LED lighting enhances the display. Front venting design means they fit easily into any back bar layout, without the need for rear- or side-clearance. To allow for different front of house décor and styles, the exterior can be painted to any RAL number, is available in black plastic steel exterior or can even be supplied with wooden doors.
For those who haven’t yet encountered Precision’s Retro Refrigeration then a visit to the stand is a must. This is the cabinet that takes its inspiration from the fifties and adds the latest energy efficient components to produce a modern, high performance refrigerator that will be the focal point of any bar or kitchen. It makes a statement, with heavy-duty hinges and large handles adding to the retro feel.
Like all Precision refrigeration the new cabinet is both extremely stylish and eminently practical. It has an attractive metal exterior finish with a clear, wipe clean coating to keep it looking smart at all times. Plus it’s available in any colour the customer wants – Precision can paint the finish to match a site’s décor if the RAL number is supplied.
The latest version of Precision’s compact undercounter, the HPU150, has achieved an A rating for energy efficiency. Designed to deliver a practical storage solution where space is limited, it has a footprint of only 600x640mm.
The HPU150’s A rating means low power consumption and low running costs – under the Ecolabelling test* it used just 1.27kWh in 24 hours. It achieves this through a variety of energy saving features including high performance, zero ODP polyurethane insulation, a waste heat recovery condensate vaporiser system, and the Precision electronic controller.
The undercounter’s attractive, minimalist design, with all stainless steel construction and integrated, flush door handle, makes it ideal for both kitchen and front of house applications. It is supplied with two adjustable shelves and the shelving system is removable for easy cleaning.
Undercounters with drawers are an increasingly popular option in modern kitchen design, so alongside the standard HPU150, Precision offers the HPU152, which replaces the door with two drawers, and the HPU153, which offers a bank of three drawers. “Drawers give chefs easier access to ingredients and allow product to be better organised,” says Nick Williams, Precision’s managing director. “The choice of single door, two drawers or three gives customers the chance to select exactly the storage solution that works best for them.”
Precision’s compact undercounter is also available as a freezer (model LPU150).

Thetford refrigeration manufacturer Precision is bucking the economic slump with dynamic growth of 20% over the past year – and no sign of a downturn. Precision makes commercial refrigeration for restaurants, bars and hotels. It’s just capped off a highly successful 12 months with a prestigious industry award – the Catering Insight Business Development Supplier of the Year.
To cope with its continuing growth, the company is expanding its manufacturing and is now working hard to recruit new staff. As part of the recruitment drive, Precision held two Open Days for potential employees to see what’s on offer.
Precision is looking to recruit up to twenty people to work on the factory floor over the next few months. “Our success is all about team work,” says Nick Williams, managing director of Precision. “We have a great spirit throughout the company, and we’re looking for people who will help us drive the business forward.”
The company is highly regarded in the foodservice industry and has a reputation for innovation and customer service. In fact the Catering Insight award, which was announced at a glittering ceremony in central London last week, is voted for by customers and distributors. “That’s what makes winning such a huge accolade,” says Nick. “We’re thrilled the company’s hard work and underlying ethos has been recognised through such a prestigious award.”
This is the second year running that Precision has won a Catering Insight award, last year being crowned Heavy Equipment Supplier of the Year. Precision’s UK sales director, Tim Davis, was joined on stage by regional sales manager Kandie Harrison to accept the award from Catering Insight editor Clare Nicholls. “Precision has grown its engagement with customers over the past year, which is reflected in the volume of prestigious projects it has been involved with,” Clare said.
