About Us

2020 – A business launched in lockdown when Wales came to a standstill and only the street food vans remained open!

BVL has been created to work alongside and support local independent businesses.

We pride ourselves on providing a reliable service with minimal disruption to your business – all at a competitive price.

The company started out providing burger vans with annual gas certificates and now we are working for some of the most recognised corporate business names within South Wales.

Over the last few years, the business has developed quickly, and the number of our clients has increased, but most importantly we have made a commitment to maintaining our high standards throughout our growth.

Barrie has over 20 years’ experience within the catering repair and maintenance industry, as a qualified electrician & gas engineer, he also holds the recognised qualifications to work on NAT Gas, LPG & Mobile Catering. With a vast knowledge of a variety of equipment, no 2 days are ever the same… from cooking ranges, glass washers, potato peelers, fryers, and not forgetting those all-important combi ovens.

Jo has a background in restaurant management and facilities, therefore understands the urgency required when your equipment is not working correctly, plus she is probably one of the most organised people you will ever meet!


Giving Something Back

From the very beginning of BVL, we understood the importance of giving something back within our community, hoping we could donate our time and skills within a kitchen environment.

We began looking for a nearby local charity to support and we have been lucky enough to find the perfect partnership.

 In December 2020, we contacted Matthews House, to ask if we could help in anyway.

Since then, we have been servicing the commercial kitchen & repairing the catering appliances at Matt’s Café.

This amazing local project is providing hospitality & hope in the heart of Swansea.

Laura Wiltshire – Owner @ Moo Moo’s Coffee Shop & Catering

I cannot recommend Barrie enough, not only is he a down to earth genuinely great guy but nothing is ever too much trouble! Called yesterday due to our dishwasher sounding like a plane taking off! Barrie and Jo rejigged some work already in and he came and fixed it all by lunch time today!

Great service and so reliable!! 

Gareth Roberts – Owner @ Steak & Stamp

We called BVL for a faulty kitchen dishwasher. Barrie attended at short notice, was thorough, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Dealing with his good lady wife who made the booking was quick and without fuss. Invoicing was clear, prices were good and paying made simple.

I would recommend and use BVL again.
