A Brief History of DCS

Established in 1988, we are still going strong 🙂

1988 – DCS is founded by George Arthur Gregory

Our father George Arthur Gregory (everyone knew him as Arthur) was the founder of the company. He had the foresight to create the company, whilst having a young family to feed and a mortgage to pay and recovering from a heart attack only 6 months earlier.

Descale and Chlorination Services Ltd is the full trading name of our family based company, it has been trading since 1988.

A family run business

Steve Gregory and his mother had been part of the business from the beginning. It was Steve’s job to deal with all tasks, whilst his mum handled all aspects of the administration from answering the phone to invoicing. Those were the days when most phone calls were taken via the office and relayed to us on site.

1992: Daniel Gregory joins the team

After a few years, as the company was growing, Daniel joined his brother Steve.

1994 – DCS Expands to temporary accomodation

The business was run from home for a number of years until we outgrew it, we then moved into temporary accommodation whilst our new business unit was being built.

1998 – The sudden death of George Gregory

Arthur died suddenly following a short illness. The family were thrown into turmoil; at 12:30am they were mourning their father and at 8:30am, Steve as telephoning all clients to give the sad news, most of whom had close ties with his father.

Following the funeral, Steve and Dan got to grips with the business and gave themselves a year to see how things would progress! It is now many years later and DCS are stronger than ever and moving forward!

2004 – DCS expands its range of water hygiene services

The water hygiene department has developed very successfully based on the high quality of service. A large number of the clients were initially gained when the company was first set up and are still trading with us today. We also began to pickup new clients, mainly through recommendations.

We used to carry out a lot of Descaling work hence the name in the early days but have slowly moved away from this concentrating on water hygiene and remedial works.

2010 – DCS moves to our current offices on Derby Road

We were delighted to move into our new dedicated offices, still located in Wirksworth. The new office space has allowed us to expand our fleet and take on new staff.

2011 – DCS offers water hygiene products for sale online

We launched our online store, www.dcsproducts.co.uk which sells a wide range of water hygiene products including dipslides and incubators.
