WR Refrigeration’s origins date back to the early part of the last century when Thomas Herbert Wathes started a small engineering business in Leicester. WR specialise in all major projects that involve the design, installation, service and maintenance of refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
Following a restructuring in the late 1990’s to meet clients’ changing demands for the future, Wathes Refrigeration became WR Refrigeration, and emerged as the UK’s leading refrigeration and air-conditioning contractor.
Now part of Huurre Group and with the head office based in Thurmaston, Leicester, the company has 5 regional service centres and a satellite office in Belfast equipped to provide a complete range of services to customers in Scotland and Northern Ireland, Northern England, Midlands and Eastern England, Wales and South West, and London and the South East.
