Domestic Paraffin Supplies

Has been in business now for over 50 years now from the same site since 1965.

The business started an as an oil company selling paraffin to domestic customers around the streets, then quickly expanding into all heating oils both wholesale & retail.
As the company grew we became one of the south east’s biggest independent paraffin suppliers.

In 1983 as the paraffin market was diminishing fast, we ventured into new area’s and started to sell Calor Gas products.
Entering this market we brought twenty years of experience in serving the end user to the distribution of Calor Gas.
In 1995 we totally stopped selling oil products and went completely into the gas business.

The business continued to expand and now as well as the core business of selling gas, we also have a hire department with stocks of quality commercial catering equipment and an engineering department that over the years has installed some of the UK’s biggest and major catering events.

DPS Hire

was started in back in 1994 after years of working with Calor’s as part of their national hire team.
We stock a wide range of commercial quality catering equipment for hire, as well as teaming up with various catering partners to be able to supply you with the service and package you require.

Our range of equipment includes 6 burner cookers, turbo ovens, hot cupboards, bain-marie’s, combi ovens, LPG BBQ’s, double basket gas fryers, gas/electric water boilers, preparation tables & much more equipment is available for hire.

All our equipment is delivered fully serviced/tested and ready to use, although we carry an extensive stock the longer the notice given the more likely we will be able to complete your order. Our busiest time is in the summer when we cater for many events.

If you require a permanent or semi-permanent installation either into a building or in a marquee, then we can cater to your cooking needs. So there is no need for Pubs or Restaurants to turn away business because their kitchens cannot cope with high demands.
Our fully trained staff can advise on the best way to set up & carry out the full installation that’s best suited to your needs.

DPS Engineering

has been servicing, repairing and carrying out complete installations of all LPG operated equipment for many years now. Our engineers are highly trained are completely capable of undertaking the job at hand.
Now we’ve expanded into the event water and waste installations, here at DPS we can now offer you the complete ‘Event Catering Solution’ enabling you to concentrate on the other areas of your event thus allowing them to go smoothly & without the need to have many different contractors.
