Hawco supplies specialist service products and component parts to the refrigeration, air conditioning, heating, electrical and control industries. The sectors included within these industries range from catering right through to medical and process control.

Hawco Limited, part of Diploma PLC, was established in 1973. Diploma PLC is an international group of businesses supplying specialised technical products and services operating globally in three distinct sectors: controls, seals and life sciences. It was in April 2012 that Hawco acquired Abbeychart, a specialist supplier of service products to the water, vending, coffee, soft drinks and brewery markets. With over 100 employees combined, Hawco and Abbeychart continue to focus on their customers’ needs and these remain core to the companies’ business philosophy and strategic direction. Hawco has and continues to firmly believe in delivering solutions at the point of sale by adapting a structured and empowered business model, allowing staff to make key decisions face to face with customers. ‘Our policy on continuous improvement means we are constantly seeking new ways to invest and improve our knowledge, products, marketing and sales approach through a detailed cross training matrix and continual investment in the latest technology’ – Mark Taylor, Managing Director, Hawco.
