ORIGINALLY AMERICAN owned, H+K International is a leading global supplier of stainless steel kitchen equipment to the food service industry. As chief executive, David Bobbett led an Irish management buyout in 2002. He describes his biggest business achievement as dealing with a 50 percent drop in sales 10 days after completing the buyout, when their largest customer decided on a sudden change of strategy with a drastic cutback in capital expenditure. Bobbett restructured H+K to provide total restaurant solutions, incorporating manufacturing and logistics, and the company now employs 970 worldwide, with manufacturing and service office operations in Mexico, US, Canada, UK and most recently Indonesia.
We strive to be the global leader in providing distinctive value through Integrated Equipment and Service Solutions to the restaurant and retail industry that enables our customers, partners and employees to succeed.
Based on our customers’ increased needs we are utilizing the Integrated Project Management model to actively develop new competencies in areas of field data collection and in the creation of architectural engineering drawings. This in turn translates into site execution while monitoring suppliers manufacturing schedules and influencing their inventory management. This extended role is particularly valuable in more mature markets with significant numbers of rebuilds and relocations.
