Your guests are seeking the best possible experience in both restaurant and hospitality environments. You want them to rely on you - and return, often. Quality equipment communicates quality service. Central Specialties Ltd. delivers quality restaurant and hospitality products, with experience that dates back to 1927.

Headquartered in Crystal Lake, Ill., CSL designs and delivers a full spectrum of products to enhance your restaurant and hospitality equipment needs. Central Specialties Ltd. is the result of a collaborative merger between CSL’S Gaychrome-branded food service product lines and Tubular Engineering’s hospitality offerings.

The Gaychrome brand was founded in 1927 and provided plastic, wood and metal products for the restaurant and hospitality industries until it merged with Central Specialties Co. in 1982.

The Tubular Engineering product line was a perfect complement to the CSL product offering. The combination of businesses offers an excellent assortment of quality products.
