30 Years of PKL

On October 17th 2018, we celebrated our 30 year anniversary. From initially supplying portable kitchen units, PKL has grown to be one of the largest providers of temporary and permanent kitchen infrastructure in the world.

While the supply of temporary kitchens and catering equipment remains core to our business, over the last three decades we have grown our product range to supply a wide variety of both permanent and temporary kitchens to customers around the world.

A Selection Of Projects Over 30 Years

We still have some of the original members of staff that have been with us from day one, and many more have been on the journey with PKL for more than 15 or 20 years. We’ve put together some short videos which illustrate some of our more memorable projects over the last 30 years, described by staff members (old and new!) who have had an involvement in delivering them, or writing about them afterwards!

Looking Forwards to the Next 30 Years!

We’ve had an amazing time over the last 30 years, working on some incredible projects and making a lot of friends along the way. We’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone, from staff past and present, our customers and those who have worked alongside us, who have played a part in our journey over the years.

We’re excited about what the future holds for us. While we’ll strive to remain the UK’s leading supplier of temporary kitchens and catering equipment to hire, permanent modular kitchens and retail catering facilities, and delivering our projects to the high quality that our customers have come to expect, we’re looking forward to the next big challenge and what new products and markets lie around the corner.
