R F Henderson began life in 1979 as domestic heating engineers founded by the now retired chairman Robert Fenwick Henderson. The company grew steadily during the 1980’s and by 1992 when Ian Henderson (the founder’s son) joined the business. Ian identified commercial and social housing markets as the main targets for growth ans was later joined by Nik Smith to exploit these opportunities. Nik continues to lead the business.
The business operates nationally - providing installations for large and small scale customers and also provides a turnkey commercial design and installation service for British Gas Commercial as well as its own customers based upon the entire spectrum of heating, ventilation and air conditioning. We are recognised for our rapid response, flexibility and ability to cope with customer demands and we are able to provide solutions and services effectively and efficiently to the Commercial, Retail, Financial and Industrial sector.
Throughout its history RFH has retained its customer base and delivered controlled growth throughout periods of recession and constantly evolving regulations, many of our employees have been with the business since its creation which we believe is a testament to not only the service we provide but the continuous training and high value we place on our employees.
Based on a sound financial background, technical ability, and a history of excellent service to our clients we aim to realise our ambition of being respected by all our clients, suppliers, competitors and employees.
