Mike Mellor


Mike worked in the catering-equipment industry for over 30 years, starting out at Mid-West Catering before joining PKL Group, where he rose to the position of managing director prior to launching his own company, Space Catering Equipment, in 2000.

Having grown into a £20m-turnover business under his leadership, the group – which includes Holmes Catering Equipment Solutions, Space Interior Contracts and Space Furniture – became one of the best-known and most respected in the industry. It was acquired by Nisbets in 2016 and continues to offer a full and comprehensive solution for commercial food concerns, from the intelligent design of space through the interior fit-out and installation of equipment and furniture to post-warranty service. Mike remains passionate about his field of expertise, and continues to work for the group on a consultancy basis.
