Convenience storesIn-store cafeteriasHospitals, Clinics and Medical
ButchersOffice canteensPharmacies

Key to our success:

  • We supply top-quality equipment.
  • We give attention to detail that the bigger companies simply cannot deliver.
  • Our management team has many years of experience in project management as well as their individual areas of technical expertise.
  • We provide 24/7 service support by technicians with three-year formal education and training.

As our customers’ businesses build and change, the consultancy has become a significant part of our service mix. From design to comply with new health and safety legislation to a full refurbishment, we like to think that no one knows more about what we do – and no one does it better.

We stay at the head of developments in technology and materials, working directly with our suppliers and attending the international exhibition and product events.

As you browse the site, if you find anything of specific interest, or it raises any question, please feel free to contact me. I like to think that Watco has the time to make and keep a friend.

Customers and Testimonials

Our customer’s list includes:

“I met Clark Watson about 4 years ago when we took over a group of shops in Glasgow and Edinburgh. The previous owners highly recommended their refrigeration engineers – Watco. When they undertake a job, it is always completed totally to our satisfaction. You can always judge a company by how they handle a problem. Watco always gives a fast response and top quality service.”
Tony Johnson, Managing Director
Peckham’s Limited

“Our shoppers are often with us for a matter of hours, so the cafeteria and servery area is an important part of our service offering. Watco have served us well during the last six years, with a dozen new openings and refurbs, and other smaller things. They have been proactive in sourcing new equipment to meet our changing demands. Clark and his team give a personal service and look after us very well. We have achieved things better and more quickly than we might have done using a more distant company.”
John Trotter, Operations Director
Dobbies Garden Centres

“I have worked with Clark and his team for 10 years now. I trust him to give me just what i need. The build quality is excellent and the finish detail is superb. Nothing is a problem for them. The installation service is everything I expect – and more.”
Tony DeMarco

“I have known Watco since they started and have worked with Clark on more than 20 projects. They give excellent service and their products are popular with my clients. In fact, often a client will have already seen and chosen from Watco’s range. When I’m working with Watco, I know my client will be happy.”
Peter Rae, Architect

“We have been working with Watco for over 10 years now. They recently completed their 8th refit for us. My business relies on efficiency and high presentation values. We are a big business and I have my pick of suppliers. If they weren’t the best, I wouldn’t use them.”
