CSE was founded back in 2004 as a catering supplies business selling janitorial products to hotels and pubs. Over the years CSE has evolved to become one of Wales’ biggest catering equipment hire companies, suppling to professional caterers, hotels, private individuals and large corporate clients.
CSE Hire currently stocks over 300 product lines, from cutlery and table linen through to dishwashers, combi ovens and fridge trailers, all run from our warehouses in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.
Our team of dedicated staff, wash, clean and prepare all hire items in-house, ready for delivery in our own vehicles from our door to yours. We deliver over 1000 orders every year, from small birthday parties at home to large events such as The Hay Festival and The Royal Welsh Show to name but a few.
We are fiercely passionate about what we do and hope that this shows through our commitment to quality and service.

Meet some of our team...


When Simon isn’t number crunching or driving our delivery vehicles, he enjoys the great outdoors, either on land or sea. He’s also a volunteer on the Fishguard Lifeboat.

Jeanette (Jen)

When Jen isn’t looking after all our clients, she enjoys walking her two Labradors, Olly & Alfie, oh, and she does like a drop of Gin!!


When Sean isn’t driving the length and breadth of the county, he enjoys Tri training and tinkering with his motorbike.


When Charlie isn’t driving, he enjoys spending time on the sea, and loves a good coffee!


When Alli isn’t busy in the laundry, she enjoys walking, traveling and getting together with friends.

CSE Hire have always been reliable, professional and have gone the extra mile for us. The glassware and crockery are substantial and great quality, and behind the scenes the cookware is top notch. We have had great business with CSE over the years, and we wouldn’t use anyone else! A big thank you from the team at Qube Catering.

Both the team at Pembrokeshire Tourism and the Board of Directors would like to thank you and your staff for the spectacular effort which you made in supplying to the Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards recently. Joy has indicated how helpful and professional your team has been in the run up to the event, long may our working relationship continue in such a positive way.

Alison Belton | Pembrokeshire Tourism a first class service. The quality of their china, cutlery and glass is top grade and the standard of their kitchen equipment is faultless. The staff at CSE are friendly, helpful and cheerful and the company have always been willing to go that extra mile for us. They have never let us down.

I would like to thank you for your service and help, It was fantastic and I would certainly recommend you in the future. Everyone was helpful, the order was correct and the standard of crockery was much better than we have had previously from other companies.

Absolutely superb service! Thank you so much, we only had a party with a small number of people but you made our lives so much easier. Delivery and all. Thanks again

CSE Hire were fantastic. They are friendly and incredibly helpful – nothing was too much trouble and they offered sensible suggestions about what I’d need for my wedding day.  Jeanette and the rest of the team should get a medal for their calm, warm approach to stressed brides.  Can’t recommend them highly enough!

Friendly and helpful on the phone; backed up by a reliable and punctual delivery service. CSE and its staff (I dealt with Jeanette and Simon who are wonderful) made my launch event (at Guy Manning’s Art Room, Tenby) so easy to arrange, and their back-up service after the snow was incredible. Look no further, highly recommended, thanks again.
