DCS was founded in 1989 by the leading appliance engineers and designers in the country.
We first pioneered the high-end, commercial-quality, drop-in cooktop. Next we focused our 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 our 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.
We also added gas-fired, outdoor patio heaters to complement the barbecue products. Not long after that, we expanded into a full line of commercial quality ranges. Developing the next generation of ultra high-end, professional-style cooking equipment for the home.
In October 2004, Fisher & Paykel Appliances acquired DCS. Fisher & Paykel, seen as the innovator in the appliance industry, has state of the art manufacturing facilities in New Zealand and Australia. The Fisher & Paykel brand is a household name in Australia and New Zealand, and a premium brand delivering innovative design and technology to over 40 countries worldwide.
Today, working from our 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.
