About us

From our earliest foundations back in 1982, Bergdorf has developed in both quality and reputation in equal measure.

From humble beginnings one core value has never changed and remains as true today as back in 1982; the design and craftsmanship of systems that are reliable, both cost and energy efficient – yet sleek enough to showcase in any home or business.

Our range of Air Conditioning equipment includes our popular energy-efficient Inverter technology, stop/start fixed speed models, as well as our Blue Fin and Cellar Master ranges for more accurately controlled temperature environments.

In this our 30th anniversary year, we are celebrating by bringing you our most exciting range of energy saving climate controlling systems to date! In addition, our Research & Development laboratory continue to work on an exciting collection of “future ready” systems including; hot water Air Source Heat Pumps, Ground Source Heat Pumps, and Solar PhotoVoltaic systems.

We believe that one of our key strengths is our ability to listen to and learn from our customers’ needs and expectations. We hope that this ability coupled with our future ambitions, as well as our family of experienced engineers, will help carry forward the Bergdorf brand over the next 30 years (at least).
