DCS was founded in 1989 by the leading appliance engineers and designers in the country. They first pioneered the high-end, commercial-quality, drop-in cooktop. Next they focused their innovative thinking on creating a whole new phenomenon - commercial-quality, outdoor gas barbecues. DCS soon emerged as the leading provider of professional outdoor grills.
Leveraging their expertise in high end cooking equipment, DCS entered the commercial cooking market with high-performance, heavy-duty ranges, convection ovens, broilers, griddles, and countertops for the foodservice industry. They also added gas-fired, outdoor patio heaters to complement the barbecue products. Not long after that, they expanded into a full line of commercial quality ranges. Developing the next generation of ultra high-end, professional-style cooking equipment for the home.
Today, working from their 300,000+ square foot headquarters and factory in Huntington Beach, California, Fisher & Paykel and DCS continue to redefine the standard for high-end, commercial quality cooking equipment in kitchens and decks around the world. In North America DCS is sold through a network of over 2,500 storefronts and supported by over 1,500 service organizations.
