Introducing Team PKL! Part 1

A new year and some exciting new changes to the PKL Blog. For 2013 we are pleased to welcome a number of our project consultants and directors who will be contributing some of their expertise over the next 12 months in a series of guest blog posts.

We will be giving an insight as to what it takes to deliver some of our more complex projects, some of the challenges involved, the range of both temporary and permanent projects that PKL Group is involved in supplying and some of the things you might want to consider if you are thinking of installing either a temporary or permanent kitchen facility. In addition, they are here to answer any questions you may have regarding the installation of temporary or permanent modular catering facilities or any thoughts you may have regarding the provision of commercial foodservice facilities.  

Over the next two posts, and in no particular order, we would like to introduce some of the faces who will be contributing to the PKL Blog in the coming weeks and months.
