Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1989, Bob Rudd is now one of the largest independent suppliers across the UK and is expanding rapidly. The company now operate from Newcastle, Leeds, Nottingham, Wigan and Keswick.
“We are thrilled to kick off EAG 2017 with such a large order from Bob Rudd, one of the most highly respected independent operators in the country,” said Blueprint Machines’ managing director, Simon Barff. “This order goes to show that King of Games is the undisputed market leader for digital Category C in the UK.”
“This order is part of an ongoing investment programme we have embarked upon with the King of Games product,” said Nick Rudd, managing director of Bob Rudd. “We have always spearheaded the introduction of digital product into the retail pub sector and this order shows that our digital strategy is paying off. We are also looking forward to receiving our first delivery of the new Alphastar.”
