Over 100 Years
Taylor and Fraser have successfully delivered heating and ventilation projects for over 100 years. The Company built its business as a provider of Mechanical Services with a reputation for delivering technical excellence to the highest quality standards and this has stood the company well, right up to the present day.
More recently as part of a strategy to expand the business, the Company set up a small Construction Division to undertake building work relating to the installation of Services. This has moved on and this Division now undertakes multi-million value projects in its own right as a Principal Contractor with focus on specific niche markets.
The most recent development has seen the setting up of an Electrical Contracting Division which along with the other disciplines enables the Company to offer complete turnkey packages to the market.
