Years in business
What we do…
With over 40 years of experience we understand the demands on a Project Team to deliver a catering facility. Operating within a tight programme and budget, but still needing to achieve quality, we continue to deliver a high end product and leave customers smiling.
We manufacture and distribute Berkeley Hotplates to a worldwide customer base providing the undisputed quality for the last 43 years. We have a standard range of competitively priced units suitable for freestanding, portable or built in applications.
On completion of any sale or project fit out we will continue to provide support. Our Customer Care Team will provide warranty support and user training, ensuring that the item or facility is used and maintained to its intended specification.
Our design team specialises in providing the drawings and data necessary to allow a successful and co-ordinated delivery of a catering facility. The team dovetails the end user’s needs into a functional design by listening to the core principles set down and translating into a design that is ‘build-able’, useable and can be maintained. Safe design is paramount and consideration of the environment key to project success.
Being key distributors of market leading brands, we can offer competitive prices for any item of catering equipment, with no limit on how small or large.
No project is too small. Whilst we can manage the installation of a complete restaurant, we can also assist in making small changes to a facility – anything from putting up some shelves to changing a tap.
