Who We Are
Our original business, Warewashers, was formed in 2003 by an engineer and a salesman having over 40 years combined experience in the hospitality industry.
We identified a gap in the market with the lack of quality refurbished glasswashers and dishwashers. There was lots of 'refurbished' machine on eBay but nothing that in our opinion represented any real value and had reasonable operating life left.
During our first year in business nearly 200 refurbished machines were sold and it soon became clear that not only was there a huge demand for these machines but that customers appreciated the expertise and knowledge that went with the machine.
Difficulty in keeping up with demand combined with ensuring a good supply of quality refurbish-able machines suitable for resale led to our first new machine sales.
Since then we have gone from strength to strength developing the Warewashers name as a major supplier of new machines to the industry, and it still is today.
Due to requests from our growing customer base we decided to diversify, so in 2007 Advantage Catering Equipment was started.
With the same commitment to providing a great product and enuring we have the knowledge to give best advice our reputation has grown.
We now offer nearly 15,000 product lines from over 120 manufacturers including many of the most respected hospitality industry brands and pride ourselves on the levels of customer service that a family run business can provide.
As part of our continuing drive to provide our customers with a better service our partner company Advantage Catering Equipment gained membership of CEDA (Catering Equipment Distributors Association).
We have customers all over the UK and have shipped items as far as the Falklands, but our customer base remains firmly in Kent and London where we have completed many small to medium projects and some higher profile larger projects.
All are treated with the same passion and attention to detail.
We have recently become an ISO accredited company gaining the following
ISO 9001 - Quality management system
ISO 45001:2018 - Occupational health and safety
ISO 14001 - Environmental management system
Gaining these accreditations has not been easy but we believe that we now run a safer and more environmentally aware business with a system in place to improve what we do every day.
