HCS Catering

Hatherley Commercial Services ltd (HCS) was formed August 2002 by Paul and Ben Hatherley as a company totally dedicated to the catering equipment industry.

Both had been employed in the service industry, one as a company founder the other as a senior gas service engineer, along with two other senior engineers they boasted in excess of 75 years experience within the catering equipment industry from the outset.

Located on the Newark Industrial Estate, with excellent access north to south and east to west, the company has made steady progress doubling the workforce to eight by 2005. In September 2005 Kirstin Hatherley joined the company to manage the administration and busy service office, making the company a truly family business.
