Global foodservice procurement group, Premier Services International, has launched a new catering equipment dealer arm called Premier Catering Distributors.

The Feltham-based firm is now providing catering equipment and supplies to the catering and hospitality industry, and will soon launch an ‘eco-friendly’ disposable goods offer too.

With a new website in the offing, Premier’s main premises are located near Heathrow Airport and include office and warehouse spaces with access to everything the company requires.

As the warehouse is open 24 hours, the company says it can receive, store and deliver equipment to anywhere in the UK.

Premier Services International, the parent company, has been running for around 20 years. This is primarily an exporter of catering supplies and equipment to hotels all over the world.

The dealership currently comprises three directors: Tom Ditchburn, Michael Elliott and Charlie Ditchburn.

Charlie detailed: “We have since decided to set up the new company, Premier Catering Distributors, as currently most of our business is overseas through the parent company. We are focusing our business on the UK market, and bringing our years of experience of service to the UK.

“We mainly focus on the hospitality sector, but we have plans to expand into the retail sector too in the future.”

  1. Hi Charlie. I have dealt with you dad, John Ditchburn (family business) in the past. I understand your business model re exporting and dealing with many oversees clients so would like to reassure Paul of KCS that Premier International are not a Uropa / Nisbets type of operation. I wish you, brother Tom and Michael, let’s add in your mum Susan and dad John all the very best. As you state, yours is and can be a genuine 24 hour operation based in a great location.
