Catering equipment test and inspection centre

Ready-to-go Catering Equipment

We operate a large scale catering equipment testing, inspection and maintenance centre on site. After every hire, each piece of catering equipment passes through this centre, where it is stripped of its component parts and cleaned. It is then reassembled, tested and commissioned before going through a final QA process to ensure that it is in full working order.

This ensures that we keep a large stock of ready-to-go catering equipment which we know is in full working order, which can be dispatched at short notice in an emergency situation.

The Quay is our custom made facility for the preparation of temporary kitchens.

Similar to our catering equipment, all of our temporary kitchens are cleaned on the Quay after every hire, while go through a thorough testing, commissioning and QA process before they leave PKL to ensure that they are in full working order.

We keep a stock of ready-to-hire kitchens and coldrooms that have gone through our testing and commissioning process, which are ready to be dispatched in an emergency.
