Our Work & Our Clients

We currently work in close to 700 schools and colleges throughout the North West, whether it’s through Facility Management Companies, Local Authorities, Independent Schools or Archdiocese we can provide you with first-class equipment, fitting and services

DCE can install your new equipment and remove/dispose of your old unit for you, saving you the hassle. We even issue you with the appropriate waste transfer note to comply with environmental regulations, so you have peace of mind everything is sorted. We can also arrange for training on your newly purchased equipment by the manufacturer or our own Engineers. This will ensure you are using your new product correctly and safely within the manufacturer’s recommendations but more importantly ensure you are using it to its full potential. This allows you to maximise your time and help save energy.

Once the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, DCE can even offer a full servicing programme to one or any number of appliances you may have. We sell top quality products at the best possible prices and even offer finance options to help spread the costs with those bigger purchases.
