Early Life and Career of Willie Haughey
After attending Holyrood Secondary School and Langside College, Haughey worked in the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry in Abu Dhabi. He saved up £70,000 and returned to Scotland to start his own business with his wife Susan. In 1985, they founded City Refrigeration – a refrigeration equipment and maintenance supplier.
After securing a service contract with the Tennent’s company in the 1980s and agreeing to similar terms with other breweries, Haughey sold a majority stake to the 3i equity firm.
However, when the financial situation took a turn for the worse, Haughey had to sell two of his other small companies back to City in order to increase revenue and provide a wider range of services.
In 1997, the company signed a deal with Asda to maintain refrigeration equipment in stores throughout the United Kingdom.
The venture’s success allowed Haughey and his wife to buy back almost full control of City from 3i in 1999, so they could have more input on its future strategic direction. Its operations expanded gradually and continuously over the next few decades.
The Entrepreneurial Spark accelerator was hosted at the City Refrigeration Headquarters in Glasgow under the patronage of Willie Haughey.
The City technical division is located in Clydesmill Industrial Estate near Cambuslang, and its corporate headquarters are at Caledonia House in Gorbals, Glasgow.
The company relocated from nearby Shawfield in 2009 when those premises were demolished for construction of the M74 motorway completion. The new site was virtually on the site of Haughey’s childhood home, which had been demolished years earlier.
The family moved on to the newly built Toryglen neighbourhood a short distance to the south.
The company rebranded itself as City Facilities Management in 2017 and has a branch in Paris. They have a number of international clients that include Coles Supermarkets in Australia.
In 2020, high-profile investor Lord Willie Haughey rejected suggestions that he was interested in an acquisition plan to Rangers, saying that he was solely focused on Celtic.
