About Us

How we got started

With over 30 years of experience in the catering industry as a restaurant owner as well as extensive experience with multiple successful kitchen design and manufacturing companies, it was a natural progression for Graham Oliver to set up his own company.

Graham joined forces with Graham Ahier from Oxford Commercial Kitchens, and Thames Valley Catering Equpipment was born.

Whatever the nature, extent, style and budget of your commercial kitchen project, you can be assured of the same high level of professionalism,  performance from our experienced team here at Thames Valley Catering Equipment.
