About Us

CATERING EQUIPMENT SPECIALISTS (NI) LTD was established in March 2011 but has traded for over 100 years under different company names.
The company was established in Belfast in 1909 and traded for 50 years as W GARDINER plumber and gasfitter.
In 1959 the family run company became W GARDINER & SONS LTD and began to specialize in repairs to commercial catering equipment. Over the next 50 years the 3rd generation of family members took over and continued to do business with the large and loyal customer base the company had achieved.
As the company specialized in servicing equipment only and not sales, they were able to take on warranty work for some of the biggest equipment manufactors in the trade.


The rebranding is designed to make everyone aware, who sees our new company name, exactly what we do best.
That is service, repair and maintain all the leading makes and models of commercial catering equipment
The main criteria that hasn’t changed is the knowledge and vast experience of our highly trained workforce who will continue to upkeep our total commitment to customer satisfaction.
