About Us

BCE Catering Equipment Ltd is a 100% New Zealand owned business founded in 2000 with a vision to provide the hospitality sector with exceptional service and quality products that was unequaled in the Wellington region.

Initially operating out of a sleep-out on the family property in Waikanae, BCE now has its main offices and warehouse in Paraparaumu, on the Kapiti Coast.

In 2002 Neil Thomson joined the business as a partner. Neil has an extensive background in the Catering and Hospitality industry, including Action Dimock, Henry Berry and Butler Gibpat.

In April 2012 Neil and his wife Siobhan purchased BCE Catering Equipment.

In addition to their experienced customer services team, BCE has reps covering Wellington, Wairarapa through to Taranaki. However the customer base is spread from Auckland to Invercargill and everywhere in between.

BCE’s vision is still as strong today as it was when they started, combine this with their experience and knowledge of the industry and you’ve got a team you can count on.
