James Alpe is Clitheroe’s version of ‘The Apprentice.’ Working in the engineering trade since a very young age, he has become the nations first and foremost hog roast machine provider. This status has been achieved in the same manner that his life has; not through the silver spoon, but through hard work, commitment to quality and the building of a reputation through this commitment.

The fact that we are the manufacturer means that you can not only save a colossal amount on the unit price for a hog roaster machine, but you can also take advantage of being able to take your machine away with you personally. This allows you to save on the mandatory fees for delivery, with you, the customer, saving a hundred pounds by taking the machine away with you.

In terms of what’s best for our customers, it cannot be stressed enough how important it is for you to purchase a hog or spit roasting machine from a reputable manufacturer. The longest in the trade, here at James Alpe’s we have seen many manufacturing outfits come and go. It is bad enough for the home user to buy a faulty machine, however, the mobile caterer whom places a great deal of emphasis on a hog roast machine as an investment need take just as much notice. Over our many years in the business, we have been able to continually improve our machines.
All of our machines feature the broad usage of toughened stainless steel. Using this material, we are able to craft and create machines that boast strength properties which are simply amazing.

With big brand power and a name you can trust, it simply makes no sense to buy from a middle man. Buying in such a manner only increases the cost to yourselves in various ways, from over-inflated delivery costs through to inflated charges for spares (all of which you can buy from us direct at a much, much lower cost). As something we love, our engineered products feature in some of the worlds finest eating establishments as well as in the armouries of the most competent of mobile caterers. Owning a piece of engineering finery has never been easier, and with us its always a sound investment.
