Watco Systems Ltd


Watco are market leaders in refrigerated display cabinets, providing fresh food displays that really make a difference to our customers’ profits.

From a single cabinet to a full turn key "shell to shop" fit-out, we offer a complete, integrated service. 

We have been the market leaders for refrigeration in Scotland for many years. Moving on from this success, we have been establishing a firm foothold in England. 

Now, we have two new sales offices and an expanded sales and service team.

* Whitstable serves the south with comprehensive Design and Administration facilities for customers a full business day away from our Scotland Head Office.
* Birmingham provides a quick response Sales and Project Management service for customers north of Watford and south of Warrington, including Wales.

Fresh Food Display

We first used Euro’cryor when looking for a cabinet range to include deli, fish and self-serve pre packs for the food court at The Fort retail park in Glasgow. Their island fresh food displays are easy to merchandise and maintenance is so easy that nothing is a problem for part-time and contract staff.

Presentation is everything to the food shopper, and the Euro’cryor range has a look for every niche. Where a standard module won’t work, it is easy to deliver a ‘seamless’ bespoke solution. This versatility across the Euro’cryor range combined with Watco’s expert fitting ensures a standard of presentation second to none.

Display Counter

Every location has its own local customers and every site has its own challenges of space allocation and amenities. Your business needs the quality of equipment and standard of finish that will get the most from your investment.

Watco offers a comprehensive service that is efficient, reliable and cost-effective. Whether you have one shop or a chain, the Watco team can deliver a smooth, efficient project.

We have something to offer at any stage of your project, from initial thoughts to managing the installation for minimum loss of trading time. From replacement of a cold cabinet to a complete strip-out and refit, wherever you are, Watco has direct experience of your needs, and can supply any display counter inquiries.

Air conditioning installation

Comfortable shoppers spend more money and comfortable staff work harder. Cooling and heating technology have both seen huge advances in the last few years. Precise temperature control, silent operation and low running costs now mean that any business that has not looked at its air conditioning in the last 3 years should think about a change. Of course, if your current system uses CFC cooling gases, recent legislation means you will soon have to change in any case.

Watco have decades of experience in selecting and fitting the best solution for shops, offices, restaurants and takeaways. Our service engineers are trained to the highest standards. They know every product inside-out and you can call us any time day or night.

Watco supplies the best, and we have found Daikin air coolers and heat pumps to be unmatched for performance and long service life. Their designs are market leaders, and their manufacturing technology sets an international standard for quality.

Food Preparation Areas

Presenting food at its best is a technical issue. Fitting your space, operating environment, décor and ambience are design issues.

Watco is uniquely placed to give you the combination of technical performance, layout design and presentation style that means everything looks right and runs right. So service is better and customers come back for more. We can install food preparation areas and cold room installation for the food retail industry.

Shop Fitting

Sometimes even Watco’s vast range of conventional units won’t suit an area’s unique size or shape - or your interior design plans call for something special. Watco has a dedicated fabrication unit that can apply the latest technology to build the perfect units to suit your own requirements to fufill any shop fitting needs.

Our long experience means we design and build so that there are no compromises to look, finish detail or performance. We are experts on Food Hygiene and Health & Safety, so you know that your installation will conform to national and local regulations.

We work with the top designers and suppliers of environmental control systems in Europe. Components are selected for high performance and low maintenance.
