Hey Flossy thanks for that but I'm looking to get contact details of Mackay if possible. They don't make them anymore and I'm assuming it was a family business.

hi DJ1983,
Shepparton is where my bloke works. so i asked him about Mackay Refrigeration & i googled too. it said Melb Rd - his reply was "i think they used to be the building where the party hire place was, that is now a trailer joint." makes me think they have been gone a long time.

someone might know about where they went.
good luck.

Hey Grabby I think they were only in business for a few years back in the late 70's to early 80's going by what I find on google as well, other than that I couldn't find anything about them. I have just purchased one of their giant walk in Incubators and was just curious if they were still around and may be kind enough to tell me abit about them. There is a plaque on the front of it which read Manufactured by Mackay Refrigeration, Shepparton South. There is a phone number but I would say it's a very very old number. I guess I could try calling it and seeing what happens. The number is that old it is written in the form 058 not 0358 like now days

I found this on google. I'm assuming it must have been a father & son company but looking at that, that was 43 years ago. Hmm I wonder if their still around
