What is Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM)?



Preventative maintenance is the regular, routine maintenance of your commercial kitchen and refrigeration equipment, performed by a fully manufacturer trained and qualified engineer.  This routine activity is specifically designed to improve equipment efficiency, proactively identify and resolve any issues, reduce the likelihood of equipment breakdowns and prolong equipment life.

When totalling the cost of lost energy through inefficiency, emergency breakdowns, kitchen disruption and premature equipment replacement; preventative maintenance offers one of the most cost substantial returns on investment within your kitchen.  

Minimise downtime and unexpected breakdowns with planned health checks on the catering and refrigeration equipment to ensure that your equipment is working correctly, safely and efficiently.


Our trained engineers will also assess the general cleaning and maintenance of the equipment. If necessary, they will carry out additional training with your staff on-site to ensure they are looking after the equipment and using it following the manufacturer's specification.
