You’ll find our products, designs and creative solutions in hotels, schools, prisons, pubs, restaurants, cafés, workplaces, hospitals, bakeries, patisseries, canteens, shops and everywhere else.

You will find Whitco wherever people work to provide food or drink. We provide a complete service from restaurant to kitchen and beyond. Here are just a few examples, drawn from more than 20 years’ experience.

Google honours architect

Google's recent decision to honour award-winning architect Zaha Hadid recalled our work at her beautiful Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens where we designed and installed the kitchens that power the gallery's catering operation.



Les Redhead, Catering Operations Manager

“Oxfordshire County Council have worked with Whitco catering and Bakery equipment for the last 5 years with great success. The work ranges from site visits, design and advice, sourcing and installing the correct equipment for the project, delivery, gas and electrical work all with excellent aftercare service.

“I have found Whitco to be an excellent company who will work with you, listen and take on board the needs of FWT. This is led by Tony Butler from Whitco. The projects are always completed on time and the after service is excellent. Sites are left clean and tidy at the end of the projects.

“Flexibility from Whitco has been really helpful, working with the kitchen staff and the school and making sure the Head Teacher is informed by phone call or visit. Customer service and communication is of a very high standard. I would recommend Whitco to anyone and will continue to use them in the future in Oxfordshire”

Malcolm Mitton, Key Account Director

“I have been very pleased to use Whitco for the fit out kitchens and serveries across the Prison estate mainly at HMP Gartree, HMP Aylesbury, HMP Littlehey and HMP Stocken.

Their knowledge and supply chain have been a delight. Nothing was ever a problem with design, installation and aftercare. They would be a contractor of choice”.

Richard Sainsbury, Industrial Engineering Manager

“I have been very fortunate to have worked directly with Whitco on our latest project to create a modern office environment with high class kitchen and dining facilities for the Vaillant Group. Our requirements, despite frequent changes in the early stages, were clearly understood and reflected in the proposed concepts with the final layout matching precisely to our vision.

‘The implementation phase mirrored the concept and planning phase with any issue overcome with professionalism and speed. The trust developed at an early stage enabled me to essentially hand over the area to you and know it would be done. Indeed, the exceptional helpfulness of the entire team is what made this facility possible and I can not recommend Whitco highly enough."
