Pietermaritzburg Catering Equipment was established in 1999. Maureen Govender joined the company in 2008 with a background in the hospitality industry as well as the retail part of it and moved on to become a partner in 2010. Rani Padayachee joined the company in 2012, coming from a photographic equipment sales background. Her strong interest in the industry made the transition a very smooth one. With a combined total of over 25 years in the industry Rani and Maureen have become owners of Pietermaritzburg Catering Equipment in 2012, making it one of very few, if not the only women-owned catering supply companies in South Africa. Their loyal and dynamic team forms the heartbeat of their success story and their focus is centralised on not only growing the company but each and every employee individually.
