Waeco - Refrigeration & Cooling for Caravan, Boat & the Outdoors
In the early seventies it was virtually impossible on board a yacht or boat to keep food and beverages fresh for a longer time. In 1974 two brothers, Theodor and Peter Wahning, had an ingenious idea, they created the first battery powered refrigerator – and that was the birth of Waeco.
To solve the problem of mobile cooling, the two founders designed a refrigerator with a hermetic cooling circuit, driven by a compressor and powered by a battery. A sensation at the time, the benefits of their invention are now widely taken for granted by the mobile community. The first mobile fridge paved the way to what is now the world's most varied range of mobile refrigeration products for private and professional use.
Waeco has lead the way in this industry for over 30 years now, setting new standards in terms of quality and functionality time and again. There are many products to prove this point, designer mini fridges with cult potential, wine climatisers for perfect mobile enjoyment, powerful coolers that can be operated from various energy sources and last but not least Waeco's legendary compressor refrigerators and cooling unit series. Quality and variety, combined with a comprehensive service offer, have won the company an excellent reputation. The customer base includes end-users as well as renowned manufacturers of cars, trucks, motorhomes and yachts who appreciate Waeco as a competent partner for custom design and series production.
With growth and diversification global expansion progressed at breath taking pace. In March 2007 the Waeco Group was bought by the Swedish Dometic Group as a natural next step in securing the best ownership for the growing family-owned business. Dometic and Waeco is truly a perfect combination as together they can provide a more complete selection of comfort products to the global leisure market.
Dometic has long been a worldwide leading manufacturer of absorption refrigerators, kitchen equipment, windows, doors, sanitation and convenience devices for the recreational vehicle and marine markets. Its customer base includes manufacturers of motorhomes, caravans, camper vans and leisure boats.
