CCE Group Ltd – Cut steel, not corners.

Contract Catering Equipment started life in 1987 when Ray Costelloe kicked off on his own. With just enough money to cover the first months’ rent on one workshop at Bentley Farm, Langdon Hills in Essex, Ray set up on his own, doing what he does best – bending sheet metal. Now, 25 years later, the one workshop has now become two fully operational manufacturing factories with more than 300 years’ experience in sheet metal working between them, and Ray has known some of the workers since his school days.

After the growth and success of Contract Catering Equipment Ltd and with the expertise and loyalty of the workforce, Contract Catering Equipment became CCE Group Ltd. CCE Group Ltd now employ 48 people and has now moved the business forward from high quality bespoke fabrication, evolving into a unique fusion of design, by means of communication for all the ergonomic requirements of today’s contemporary kitchens.

CCE Group Ltd is keeping ahead of their industry by catering for the modern chef, helping them visualise their dreams, maximise the use of space and create the perfect working environment in terms of a fast and effective flow of service.

CCE Group take care to bring new and up-to-date products to the chef’s attention, from catering equipment to our Stay Fresh flooring, also advising on equipment and fabrication specifications that will last the course of the investment period.

Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, known as ‘Parmesan’, is one of the world’s oldest and richest cheeses - still produced today as it was nine centuries ago. Totally natural - it’s the only cheese that has such an extensive maturation which improves the nutrition, aroma and taste. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) product.

The minimum maturation time for Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is 12 months, but only when it reaches approximately 24 months of age, is it at its best.

The history of this King of Cheeses dates back to at least 1200AD and today, Parmigiano Reggiano is still handmade by small artisan dairies with the same care and dedication that was shown 800 years ago.
