The business was started and is largely owned by Chris Craggs; Chris spent his early career working on the other side of the hospitality fence – first in restaurants in France then in hotels in the UK, finishing in charge of F & B at Grosvenor House before striking out on his own.

The company opened its doors in January 1992, in a small stainless steel fabrication workshop in Maidenhead and the maintenance side came on board in 1998. In 2010 we took the difficult decision to close the fabrication shop and the projects side (and we’re delighted that the alumni are either retired or all running their own businesses.)

Since 2010, we’ve been focused on the maintenance of catering and refrigeration equipment, working for prestige customers in the sectors of Business & Industry, Healthcare and Education with some Public Sector sites and world famous Sporting Venues.

And we’ve grown steadily – not just in our original territory of London and the South of England – but spreading to service customers through the UK.

In early 2015, we started a sister company in Dubai – which we plan to develop along very similar lines – and to grow throughout the Gulf region.

Beyond that ?

That’s the reason for this website – it will depend on who comes through the door – their ambition, their ability, their commitment and drive! The sky is the limit.
