Our values

Communicate, collaborate and coordinate - a mantra we live by when working with designers and builders to achieve program targets and enable the ultimate goals of efficiency and productivity. It’s a uniquely Advantage way.

It’s the value you won't want to miss out on; the value of operational certainty - the most essential ingredient of commercial success.

Relationships with clients are at the forefront of our operations. Therefore our team of experts bring their years of experience in connecting our equipment with your vision.

Our mission

The role of our in-house team is one of full, unconditional, professional support; we’re in the business of assisting architects, designers and builders develop drawings and technical specifications, at your side all the way through the procurement process.

Delivered, installed, commissioned.

Peter Santiago

I came into this industry in 1979 and started off working in a warehouse. I slowly worked my way up through that business and became a sales rep at the age of 22. In 1989 I started my first business and began manufacturing and designing Asian cooking appliances within that business from 1990.

I have owned and operated Take Away shops, Restaurants and Delicatessens over the years, so I know what is needed to run and operate a food service business.

I lead a team of professional passionate people making a difference to our customers. I am proud to say that we now deal with the children of the parents that I have supplied equipment to over my many years in business.

I have spent 40 years in the industry I am passionate about and still love what I do every day.
