W.C. Rouse & Son has been providing boiler room equipment and services to North and South Carolina for over 70 years. Founded in 1946 by Welby C. Rouse in Greensboro, NC, the company got its start by providing local school systems with firebox boilers for their steam heating needs, with a commitment to delivering a quality experience for its customers.

Welby’s son Tom joined the company in 1966, and he moved the business into the textile manufacturing market that flourished in the Carolinas during the 1970s, growing and expanding the company. Since that time, the company has continued to grow by servicing the emerging high tech and pharmaceutical markets that have become prominent in the Carolinas.

Today, Tom’s son Tommy, the third generational leader, continues the W.C. Rouse & Son tradition of offering the best boiler room solutions available. Whether it’s top line equipment, or service by the best boiler room technicians in the Carolinas, put the experience of W.C. Rouse & Son to work for you.
