Hay Guys

My old man has been reading a "modern refrigeration" magazine from 1951, and it has a quiz. One of the questions is "what does H.R.P stand for?", and he's been racking his brains since!

He guesses that the "R.P" stands for refrigeration products……

Any thoughts?

Heating and refrigeration products, I used to think.

I'll give you a clue.

Mr Headland started the company in the 1940's
and they sold refrigeration products.

I remember my old MD at D&W telling me about the early days of HRP , when they were called Headland Refrigeration Parts or Products ? . At that time they produced brass fittings for the industry.
