IDL Team

Thousands of projects completed


In our 20 years plus experience we have been involved with thousands of commercial kitchen projects. Not much surprises us anymore (although there still can be exceptions from time to time!), and our strong experience and expertise means we can provide you with the very best one-off equipment piece and bespoke commercial kitchen scheme.


We have been lucky enough to design bespoke commercial kitchen setups covering a wide range of industries and business types. Education, care homes, oil and gas facilities, marine vessels (including Ministry of Defence ships), hotels, restaurants, local government establishments or independent businesses. View a selection of our case studies here.


We’ve built up a solid reputation in offshore, marine and naval vessels. Such environments require us to carry out re-fit or installations in demanding conditions. They are usually 24 hour operations so we need to work around constant activity and staff members. But our team are always up for the job and work considerately around kitchen staff and other contractors.


If you are looking for a one-off piece of commercial catering equipment, our team here will work quickly to make sure you get exactly the right product for your need, quickly and within budget. We can help you with combi-ovens, dishwashers, laundry equipment, food service counters, right through to cleaning products to help look after your products.


What sets us apart from other commercial kitchen suppliers is our commitment to you. We don’t just deliver your equipment and run off into the sunset, we guide you in choosing exactly the right piece of equipment, deliver it straight to site and can help you install it.


Based in Rotherham, our engineers travel all over the UK and the rest of the world working on commercial kitchen re-fits.


Two of our directors were previously employed by Convotherm, which gives us an in-depth understanding of Combi Ovens and also food regeneration processes and equipment.


John Thresh, director of IDL, comments, “I couldn’t be prouder of our team here at IDL. Whether we are working on a small community hall kitchen or a big production kitchen, every one of us shows the same level of dedication and commitment to get the job done.


We’ve built some fantastic relationships with our customers over the years. And even long after a kitchen is designed and installed, we keep in touch to arrange upgrades or maintenance.


Our customers are reassured when we are working with them, as we always do what we say we’re going to do. We stick to our word and that goes a long way in business.”
