More Than 30 Years Experience
Starting out over 25 years ago, Utensils (Southern) Ltd was set up to supply new kitchens to small, local businesses in Sussex. As the business grew, a basic range of equipment such as crockery, cutlery and glassware was offered to customers.
Securing the contract to design, supply and install a new commercial test kitchen for the late Linda McCartney was a turning point for Utensils. More and more enquiries for commercial kitchens were being received, and these turned into confirmed jobs.
As a knock-on effect of this, the light equipment side of the business began to grow, putting Utensils into a unique position of being able to offer fully installed commercial kitchens AND all the associated light equipment. Our light equipment database is over 75,000 products strong, so if you need it, we can probably supply it!
Recruiting several more staff saw the coverage of Utensils extend well in to Kent, Hampshire and Surrey, with a web presence throughout the UK.
Today, Utensils has direct accounts with many of the well known manufacturers, suppliers and importers of catering equipment used throughout the industry, and are able to offer great discounts to all of our customers. We have representatives who are happy to visit potential customers to discuss their requirements and pass on their knowledge and advice.
A lot of our new business is gained through “word of mouth”, which proves we must be doing things right!
Aside from equipment, we have built up close working relationship with a manufacturer of bespoke stainless steel extraction canopies and ductwork, and can offer these products at very competitive prices, including installation.
If you find that there is something that is not in our Catalogue simply give us a call and we will do our best to source it for you.
