New World cookers (part of Glen Dimplex) manufacture their built-in ovens, built-in hobs, range cookers, splashbacks, and some of their freestanding cookers in the UK. Their range hoods, refrigerators, freezers, and dishwashers are now foreign made.

BBC News – Warning over collapse of Caithness freezer maker Icetech

BBC News – Warning over collapse of Caithness freezer maker Icetech.

Let’s hope someone buys this company (Icetech Freezers Limited or Norfrost) who are apparently the last fridge and freezer maker in the UK (and they their keep production in Scotland).  If I knew there was still a fridge and freezer maker in the UK I would buy UK made.

Also, Rowecord Engineering, Newport firm in administration.

UPDATE on chest freezer maker Norfrost / Icetech – According to the below article from the net, they have been bought by water cooler and dehumidifier manufacturer Ebac. Ebac manufacture all of their products in Britain and apparently intend moving freezer production to their facility on County Durham.  They apparently also hope to make washing machines eventually too. Let’s hope this is right and I look forward to hearing more about this project during 2013.
