How We Started
Caterquip Ventilation was founded by Ian Paish. Ian started working as a chef when he was sixteen. In his twenties he had a career change and went into manufacturing commercial kitchen fabrications which led him onto technical sales.
Ian’s experience gives him a great understanding of all aspects of the caterer’s needs and he gained the CPD in Kitchen Equipment & Design Course (CEDA approved) at University of West London. Ian is able to offer excellent advice on ventilation requirements and planning a functional professional environment for your team.
All Commercial Spaces
Working in any Commercial Environment from schools, colleges, pubs, restaurants, hotels, nursing homes, prisons, fast food outlets as independent suppliers which means we have access to all brands.
Planning & Regulation
We are able to give advice to you whether you are a new business, have an existing kitchen, ventilation issues or maybe working from a listed building and not sure how to work with the planning department.
Do you need planning permission for change of use or extraction requirements, these are all part of our initial consultations which will help us to help you deliver a perfect environment.
Our CAD plans show what your finished kitchen will look like and we can talk through your everyday requirements of how it will work. We’ll consider the staff traffic flow creating the most efficient space. We will discuss benefits and drawbacks of designs and explain selection factors to ensure you get the kitchen that works best for you and your team.
Once you have decided on the design we provide service drawings or give advice on gas/electricity supply required for your equipment so you can get the maximum output ready for service from your kitchen.
All our staff are CRB checked and trained. We are also CHAS, B&ES and Constructionline compliant, this means our technical and commercial competence is regularly checked alongside our Health & Safety standards. All equipment is sold with parts & labour warranty where possible and Leasing is also available. After your kitchen is installed we are on hand to support you.
Ventilation cleaning is available by appointment.
