A sparkling partnership with Meiko keeps our glassware gleaming

16 Jul 15

Earlier this year we moved Allens to new premises in Hounslow to increase storage for all of the stunning new collections of china, cutlery, glassware, furniture and more that we’ve made available, and will have to hire over the next 10 or so years. It’s also allowed us to offer a better service with easier access to central London.

The new warehouse has everything we need to keep our products at the high standards our clients expect. This includes an in-house maintenance warehouse and spray booth so that every chair can be cleaned and resprayed when it returns from hire.

We have also continued our 11-year relationship with Meiko, operating two of the latest Meiko M-iQ dishwashers with a 5-star service package that sees Meiko maintain the machines and keep them running at the highest quality.  These Meiko M-iQ dishwashers employ the latest state-of-the-art environmentally-friendly technology contributing huge savings in terms of detergents, water, electrical energy, and CO2 emmisions vs other standard dishwashers. The dishwashers run a built-in reverse osmosis water treatment system which keeps our glassware sparkling, while the purpose designed racks protect the delicate products

This is especially important as not only do we strive to give our clients perfection, but we are also the preferred supplier to the hospitality sector for Riedel who make wine glasses tailored to each specific grape varietal, not just red and white. Our ongoing relationship with Meiko ensures that Riedel’s glasses are clean and shining when they arrive at your event’s table.

Our Director Kevin McGuinness has this to say of the German dishwasher brand: “The technology they use to press the panels for the M-iQ machines (the same machinery is used by Porsche to make car doors) and the exactness exhibited in everything Meiko does is very impressive. Meiko is a great company. After I toured the factory in Germany, I was left in no doubt as to their ability to supply a quality product.”
