WAECO was founded in 1974 by the two brothers Wähning.
The Wähning brothers created the first battery powered refrigerator for the mobile use. This first mobile refrigerator paved the way to what is now the world's most varied range of mobile refrigeration products for private and professional use. Quality, speed in product development and variety in product offer have won the company an excellent reputation. In 2007 WAECO was acquired by the Dometic Group and the brand WAECO became an important part of the Dometic Group brand portfolio.
The WAECO brand, today, is associated worldwide with expertise in mobile refrigeration and automotive air conditioning. It also stands for electronic comfort and safety car accessories. WAECO has a strong position in the aftermarket for cars and trucks.
