About Us

Our People

Today Allens Hire is one of the leading catering equipment suppliers in the UK catering hire world. Looking at the scale of the operation now, you might find it surprising that Allens catering hire started as a family business, yet reassuring to know that the same two brothers,Kevin and Patrick McGuinness,are still in charge now - Kevin at the helm and Patrick overseeing operations. The senior leadership team at Allens is a formidable one and progressive management, reliable quality, discerning taste and excellent service have earned us an enviable reputation.

Our Premises

In February 2015, Allens moved to a new premises in the London Borough of Hounslow, a great new location, with even better access to the centre of London for deliveries, with increased storage for a continually growing range of product.  The new warehouse is equipped with state-of-the-art Meiko dishwaters, an in-house maintenance workshop and spraybooth team, so that every item from our fabulous range of glassware to our extensive range of chairs for hire are cleaned and maintained to meet our high standards. We also keep our own linen stocks which are inspected before each and every hire.
