About Stainless Steel Tables by American Catering Equipment

We supply high quality commercial stainless steel tables and equipment at budget prices through out the UK for the catering industry, for use in hotels, restaurants, cafes, butchers, bakers, farm shops, medical, bio science or any other application where a quality product is needed for a tough, hygienic & safe environment.

ACE Group began life in 1961 as Bar & Catering Equipment (Rhyl) Ltd supplying the Licensed Trade all types bar and catering sundries as well as contract furniture throughout North Wales, Mid Wales, Shropshire and Cheshire from its base in Rhyl.

Bar & Catering Equipment (Rhyl) Ltd continued to develop through the 1970s opening branches in Llandudno and Chester. During this time Michael Dean (Senior) moved the company away from the distribution of consumables into kitchen design, supply and maintenance.

From the late 1980s through the 1990s Bar & Catering Equipment (Rhyl) Ltd was transformed into American Catering Equipment (UK) Ltd dealing nationally as an importer and distributor for the likes of Southbend Escan from Illinois, Wolf Range, Vulcan Hart from California and Lang from Washington. When CE regulations came into force in the mid 1990s American companies did not think they had to comply leaving American Catering Equipment bereft of product other than the ongoing distribution of parts for American equipment already in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile Michael continued to seek relationships elsewhere in the world, developing contacts in the new manufacturing power house around Shanghai in China. The Internet was developing at speed providing new opportunities to distribute quality product to the whole of the United Kingdom and beyond. Michael decided to bring good quality stainless steel tables and offer them to the foodservice industry, there being only one proviso, everything had to be approved for worldwide use by the National Sanitation Foundation.

Since then we have expanded our range to include sinks, wall shelves and cupboards, racks, trolleys but we remain specialists in the provision of commercial stainless steel tables and equipment, marking us out from the vast number of “box-shifters” available on the net.

Unfortunately Michael Dean passed away early 2015 but his work distributing good value quality stainless steel equipment to commerce and industry continues through his sons, Michael, Tony and indeed the next generation.
