Founded in 1958

History

Swanwick Catering equipment was established in 1958, and operates a national and oversees catering equipment, domestic white goods and laundry services business. The business is based in Andoversford, near Cheltenham where we operate a warehouse and showroom facility. The business currently serves Cheltenham, Gloucester, Oxford and Bristol as its major city focus.

Changes

During its history, Swanwick Catering Equipment has established a relationship with global brands, and now operates a successful import and export service for key manufacturers such as Electrolux, Garland and Hobart. Since 1958, Swanwick Catering Equipment has been providing top brands from the industry to end users. In 1990 we were one of the first catering equipment distributors to implement AutoCAD to plan and design kitchens, and up until the mid nineties were sole UK and Europe agents for many US and Canadian brands of food service equipment, including Market Forge, Vulcan Hart, APW Wyott, Jade and Univex.

To present day

The imposition of the CE certification in 1993 meant that the US brands could not be sold in Europe any longer, with a few exceptions, at which point we began to supply Zanussi Professional Equipment for the UK market, now known as Electrolux Professional. We continue to this day to supply US equipment into non-European destinations, including many countries in Africa and The Middle East. With the CE certification causing a division between available brands in Europe, Swanwick Catering Equipment introduced a new catering equipment export eCommerce store, 7DayChef.com.
