Their new range of built-in and freestanding cooling and cooking products will only reinforce this reputation and grow their long list of fans globally. Fisher & Paykel has always been a company that I have looked up to and the opportunity for growth and expansion in the UK, Ireland and Europe is truly exciting.”
