25 years ago, when Shelfspan first started trading, the majority of our customers were looking for food services storage and handling solutions for the catering and hospitality industry.  Over the years, we have used what we learned to expand our product range to include solutions suitable for other business sectors with their own specific requirements.  Today, our shelving systems and trolleys are used across a huge variety of business types, including;

 

Catering and Hospitality

Hospitality is the UK’s fifth largest industry1, and is still one of the largest sectors we deal with.   With 2 generations experience of working with the managers, buyers, chefs and architects of hotels, restaurants and other establishments, we know that effective use of limited space, easy access, simple maintenance and excellent hygiene are crucial in a busy kitchen.  That’s why we stock a large range of shelving and trolleys, and we’re always searching for new innovative products – like our EKO FIT shelving, designed for use in damp or corrosive environments, combining anodised aluminium frames and shelf supports with removable, easy to clean plastic shelf slats. Or PLATE-MATE®, which stores prepared cold dishes vertically, freeing up valuable space keeping your kitchen organised and clutter free.
