Wilcomatic began in 1967 as a specialist vehicle washing operation. In our 50+ year history we have grown to become what we consider to be the UK’s leading vehicle wash company. We’ve been able to diversify our offering to cover a broad range of vehicle wash needs as well as offer many other related products and services.

The company was acquired by Westbridge Capital in March 2019 in order to support our continued global growth.


We work closely with Otto Christ AG to supply high specification German engineered wash systems across the UK and the rest of the world. We  also design, manufacture, distribute and maintain many of our own products including; water recycling systems, wash chemicals and ancillary forecourt equipment such as jet washers, vacuums and air dispensers.

Wilcomatic works in compliance with the health and safety requirements of UKPIA, ROSPA, Britsafe and Safe Contractor.

We’re also members of a number of other UK and international professional organisations.
