Testimonials During the busiest month of the busiest year in our 11 year history and with just hours before 36 guests were due to arrive at our kitchen for a Black Tie Dinner I realised that I had not ordered the hire equipment from Adams! No tables, no chairs, no linen, no crockery, no cutlery, no glassware, nothing! I was distraught. I rang Stef who was her usual calm, reassuring self. Ten minutes later I received a very welcome call to advise it was sorted and truck was being loaded as we spoke. Within two hours we had a knock at the kitchen door and saw the much welcome site of the Adams van. Yeahhhhh, the hire had arrived. The show could go on! Not only do Adams Catering Hire sponsor this event but they also pulled out all the stops to ensure that it went ahead too.

- SUZANNE JAMES, DIRECTOR OF SUZANNE JAMES - CATERERS OF DISTINCT

I would like to take this opportunity to thank some amazing individuals and sponsors. Without YOU, this year’s 10x10 would have never achieved all the incredible things that it had… Steph (Adams) – You are a kind and generous lady whom we are extremely grateful to know. - WILLIAM GOLDING, ARTICLE 25

Adams support and service this year has yet again been exceptional. Always willing to help in a crisis, even arranging linen hire on a Saturday afternoon when closed after a couple’s own supplier had let them down. Their staff are friendly, professional and courteous and make working with them an absolute pleasure. - DANIEL MAHER, EVENTS DIRECTOR

@adams_hire Thank you for being so efficient and dealing with your quotes so promptly. Very impressive. - CORINNE ROWE @CHEFTHYMEPLACE ON TWITTER


G N I N N I W T A H W S U O T N A E M D L U O W Our staff work incredibly hard all year to look after our clients, every one of them goes above and beyond to make sure clients have a brilliant experience of working with us. Winning for a third year would show them how the industry as a whole appreciates them and the brilliant work they do. We’ve grown a lot since 2000 but thanks to our hard work we’re still managing to expand. In December 2014, our order value for hire was 45,000 dinner plates, 50,500 wine glasses and 41,200. That’s 20% higher than at the same time in 2013 and shows that we’re riding the wave of a buoyant economy. Although Adams is a small company, with the support of the EHA and through our extra efforts, we can achieve the same levels of excellence you’d assume only huge corporations can reach. We hope that if we win again, it will inspire other small companies to aim high when they see how much we’ve achieved.

clink!
