About us

Taking pride

Family run refrigeration business

Smith’s refrigeration takes pride in that we are a third-generation, family run refrigeration business situated in the heart of East Coast.

We specialise in installations, maintenance, and repairs in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry. Our aim is not to become a onetime service, instead we aim to build long lasting relationships.

Our history

Our story starts in 1950, where our Grandfather started his own refrigeration company in Halifax, West Yorkshire. After many successful years, our current managing director, Dale Smith, joined in 1976 as an apprentice engineer. His ambition and personal drive saw him take over the company.

The company then relocated to the sunny east coast of Scarborough in 2002 and underwent its first rebranding process. Through hard work and dedication, the company thrived and grew from strength to strength. In 2014, we saw our third-generation engineer and youngest son to our managing director, Mike Smith, join the company. 

Here came along 2020, for a lot of companies this has been one of the worst years within the modern era, we have been one of the lucky companies that managed to stay open and prosper. 

This year saw Robert join the company as our commercial Director which brought a natural change to the company and our 2nd re-brand process which saw our name change from Dales Smith’s Refrigeration to Smith’s Refrigeration. 

As we continue to grow and expand we are sticking to our core principles of trust, reliability and honesty to all our customers and clients no matter the size.

COVID-19 pandemic

Fast forward to 2020 and the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic impacted the world. We were one of the lucky companies to survive and thrive. The positive of 2020 is that it brought about our company’s second rebranding process and the eldest son of our managing director, Rob Smith, entered the business as our commercial director.

We are proud of where we have come from and the generations that have joined us along the way.
